Is there a way to remove factory stripes?

Post by flanzajr » Mon Aug 17, 2009 9:23 pm

Hi all, posted this in the "How To" section, thought maybe it should be here instead;

I am a first time owner of a 1983 Interstate, recently purchased March, 2009. The paint is in fairly good shape but the stripes are faded on the right side of the bike. The bike would look good without them but I hear that they are applied to the base coat before the clear coat is applied. Is this correct? Is there any way to remove them without damaging the clear coat if this is true? Or are there factory stripe kits still available? Or aftermarket kits that can be applied over the old stripes? Thanks for all your help in advance.[/color][/color]
