Looks like I may be adding to my meager stable. My sister has this bike she traded for. She's since changed her mind about riding a motorcycle, and now wants me to have it. A little too much flat black for my taste, but, hey...she says it runs great. I think I might find a place for it in the garage. Is this a Custom or a Deluxe? It's a 1981.

That's what I thought. Looks like a rattle can paint job on the engine. Might be easy to get rid of the black. Certainly looks salvageable. It'll give me a rider until my GL restoration is finished.

Maybe there's a chemical that you can spray on the engine and other stuff to strip off the newer paint. If it's rattle can it will be easier to get off than original paint. Maybe wipe on some acetone or thinner and spray it off with a garden hose.

We'd get in a lot of trouble here if we washed paint and such off with a garden hose.

Ok how about not using the garden hose and just use chemical and a lot of rubbing. Or clean what you can and scuff it up and shoot it with silver paint.

Dried spray enamel is nothing more than flakes of colored plastic, pretty harmless stuff.
