Is it possible to remove factory decals or pin stripes on this 84 1200 aspy, the paint looks good some of the stripes r faded . Wondering if clear coat was applied over at factory . And what type of paint was used by factory. Thanks Rick

I can't answer as to the type of paint, but I can tell you that yes, there is clear coat on top of the pin striping. You'll need to do some sanding (apparently wet sanding works better) to get through the clear coat to the pin striping.
