    To strip or not to strip

    Has anyone had luck stripping the paint off the frame to get the natural look?

    I believe the Buell factory race team bike had uncoated frames. Theres a few out there that are polished, but not my jam, gurl. A brushed one could look cool, but you'd want to coat it, it would hold dirt and wear funny.

    Hell no im not touching that job. I tried a sample piece just a extra rear set piece. I started with my harbor freight sand blaster, it didn't budge the paint. So i said screw it and hit it with a disc sander, it worked a little better but it just melted the paint and kept clogging my discs. Finally hit it with the aircraft paint remover jizz and it worked ...worked my ass off trying to scrap that junk off before it dried up and hardened. So ya forget i ever made this post. Lol..
