I have a nicely painted bike, it's like pearl and blue, but I don't like how it looks and the decals are atrocious.. I don't want to rattle can it, I've done that to other bikes, just dont want to. What I want to do is strip it down, sand it with a light paper, and polish it. Has anyone ever done this or seen a bike like this.. I'm not exactly sure how it would look. I've seen raw bikes but never polished. Any expieriences or pictures would be great. Thanks alot.
