Man-a-fi-cation.....

Postby PaiN » Thu May 29, 2014 6:49 am

Okay.....when I bought this used Victory Cross Country I did notice the previous owner had an abundance of custom pin-striping done on it but I was more interested other things and making the deal to pay overly close attention to them. Once I got the bike home and took it all in the pin striping hit me. :? There was way too much and frankly it was "girly" especial the star burst/flowery thingies....I could be in denial no longer. I learned that Easy-Off oven cleaner and some elbow grease works to remove paint without damaging clear coat so I went at it.

I think you did a great job, left just enough to make it yours.
Thanks Pop
