didn't take a pic of the next couple






here it is almost done


the whole frame is stripped now, just not after shots yet. took a total of 1.2 cans of aircraft cleaner and a bunch of old shirts. going to paint it soon

2 quick pics of my bike now..


it will heal the pain..



10 picture max for the loss

I'd say put the turbo on the Integra behind it Seem like pretty good work there, but I would've taken out the BB and headset bearing cups. Stay tuned, I just bought a new frame also, and I am thinking of polishing my Cannondale Jekyll's frame, alredy got the aircraft remover ready!

p.s.-how does that stuff feel on your skin

Do you think you will need a new chain?

Also you stripped the paint with the BB on, what if that stuff gets in there? what is the new color going to be
?

i'm pretty much a noob when it comes to bikes, just got into the game about a month ago and wasn't thinking about taking off the BB, but the headset i couldn't take off, any tips? do i just have to use a lot of force?.. i have a nice green red and yellow chris king headset going on it..

i stripped my old rims back in the day with no gloves and it burned like hell, so i wore gloves this time.. hah

i have no clue if i need a new chain.. im hoping everything will just swap over, from what i heard though i might need different length brake lines.. hopefully thats all.. and the BB, it's because im a noob haha i should have taped it off.. ill do that in the paint process.

Yeah, it's typically pressed in. I'd probably try to use a long punch and a hammer to tap it out
