Nitromors and a small paint brush then a bucket of cold soapy water..... Took me about an hour to take them off, dry the frame, then refinish with a scothbrite pad...... Better than new!

I just need a red chris king now, and that's it..... Maybe some red skewers!

Looks a belter! I used nail varnish remover on mine and they came off in a jiffy! Those silly stripes hide these superb frame's beauty.
