    Stripping is for frames with multiple layers or very crusty paint. I've seen a few 4 layer jobs here already. As long as they're compatable it's tough to get a better primer than original paint, well at least for us rattle bombers.

    That's not a bad idea, I had a parenthesis idea once that never caught on except for with my little sister. If you placed something in backward parenthesis )these idiots will never understand my brilliance( it was a thought, usually a scathing thought that the other person could not read or refer to.

    The real secret to getting that paint to stick is to make sure it's REALLY CLEAN after you sand it. I usually start by using up a can of brake cleaner on it (the real stuff from the red cans; the non-chlorinated stuff in the green can doesn't work, and is highly flammable to boot). and finish up with a paint prep cleaner (Total Prep is a good brand).

    Oh, I got the kickstand off!!! Thanks for the ideas guys...I had to do it a little different but basically the same. And I couldn't have done it without you'all.
    Oh, scored a seatpost from Marty (10-18 KUSTOMS)!!!

    Part of the problem is that everytime I get on here I find SO many cool bikes to look at four hours later and no work done...must...finish...sanding...

    Re: The Groundhog


    If it's a simple drop in to replace it, I would consider a trade...otherwise I'll probably stay with this fork or try to put together a springer out of this one...I don't know that much about what forks fit what frames etc...I don't want to wind up not being able to finish the bike because I don't have the correct fork. Let me know. As you can see I started priming it...will this make a difference for you?
