I would try the hairdryer heat gun method. My luck on getting decals to come off older bikes for repaint is about 50/50. You my find you will have to choose between taping over the decals and repaint or just refinishing painting the bike without the decals. I real good paint shop restorer can usuaslly get the decals removed or duplicated but this would cost more than the bike is worth. I full professional restore on the paint finish on a old bike can cost several hundred dollars.

Don't give up or quit trying just because you run into some minor problems like this with some time and TLC I'm confident you should be able to get the bike running and looking good for a reasonable price.
