Heat. Yeah. Why didn't I think of that. I'll give it a try.
And Joe, you're right, no great worry about scratches. I'd prefer not to nick the metal in the frame, but it's a steel frame of some sort, and just a cheapy at that, so no big deal if it gets a nick here and there.
The back-story is that someone gifted me their old, Huffy, clunker. The bike was nonfunctional when I received it. I can get it running again with a good tear-down and rebuild, plus some new cables. So I'm doing that work for fun. But the paint-job is hideous, and the paint on the head-tube is flaking away. As long as I'm having fun, I figure I might as well have a go at changing the color.
