    disassembling my Bagley

    Ok. I have a Mosh Bagley. I've been looking into painting it.
    So I guess I need to take it apart. Well I need help getting
    my crank off. How can I get it off without buying a crank
    tool? And the topic of painting it. I want to remove all
    the paint. So I guess a chemical stripper? Whats the best
    way to get all the paint off. Once I can strip my Bagley to
    the frame and get the old paint off Im gonna have a car
    dealership paint it for me. (Mom works there making it free)

    1. How to remove Crank.
    2. How to remove old paint.

    Thanks for your help in Advance.

    To remove the crank, use the right tools unless you don't plan on reusing it (but you'll still need the right tools to install the new one). I don't know what type of crank came on your bike but searching www.sheldonbrown.com ought to find you the answer. You'll probably need a crank puller and a bottom bracket tool to fully strip the frame.

    To remove the old paint, heavy duty paint stripper or a sand/bead blasting chamber would be my first thoughts. Ask the paint shop if you can't find anything that works.
