Default Re: Cant get the old primer off

It isn't unusual for a stripper to need a second application if the first one didn't take everything off. Have you tried reapplying the paint stripper to the areas where the primer is showing?

Are you sure you're dealing with paint and not powder coat? Some bikes, Nirve is an example, uses paint over a powder coat base. Powder coat can be very difficult to remove. There are special strippers that will cut it but it must be made specifically for removing powder coat. Regular stripper usually won't touch it.
