Poster above suggested acetone. Not a great idea on plastic or some paints. Denatured alcohol is much safer.

Not Murray, not a former high-profile performer. More like mid-profile and well known for impacting cycling in different ways than just riding. I think I'll leave the sticker, just because it's non-obvious and I am sure I'll do a poor job of removing it and it's a nice bike.

I appreciate the comments.

Documentation is there in terms of purchase papers. I'll probably put them away somewhere. In 2005 I got a set of wheels built by a weird-looking, extraordinarily grumpy guy for an old Puegot XP-10, and that guy turned out to be Sheldon Brown. I had no idea 'what that meant' until someone directed me to his website (great site!) and asked if I had provenance. I said "no," and he looked at me funny and I looked at him funny, and then not long ago I found the Wheelworks papers in a box of old Campy stuff my dad shipped to me once.

It's weird, you can probably tell I have very, very little intersection with the world of cycling, but it's like it keeps bumping into me.

Anyhow, thanks, it was a genuine question.

You can do what you like if you are a "free spirit".

Is there a reason you are being so vague? I mean, did they threaten you with legal proceeding for giving up the name, or maybe bodily injury? Was he an Italian rider who has connections or something?

Cycling would probably bump into you less if you didnít create ridiculous, attention seeking fake teaser posts on a cycling forum

I'm not seeking attention. If you think your attention is the object of my efforts, feel free to ignore. My idea of ridiculous is sitting in a chair somewhere, thinking a stranger has a need for your attention. We all have our perspectives.

Could it possibly be Kato Kaelin? Judge Lance Ito? Judge Judy? Justice Brett (I like beer) Kavagnaugh?

They're all about to be topped. Judge Jerry (Springer) is coming to TV this fall.
