Skip, you might try lighter fluid to remove the masking tape. just put some on there & let it set, repeat a few times then use a paper towel of something soft to try to remove it. I used to be in the sign business & we used lighter fluid on almost everything to remove old tape & adhesive residue. I don't think it will hurt the plastic chrome finish, but you might try it on a spot that is not visible first. Just a thought! Let us know how it works out!
My Favorite Color is Rust!
Pick, Thanks for the tip... I decided to paint it anyway so got the tape and residue off with acetone
So much for Keep It Simple Stupid.....

A little less than 7 days I hope you can pull it off

Everyone makes the spray stripper always look so easy... Mine never quite turn out as nice
The tank and fender did great but the Sears/Huffy parts just did not what to bubble up. That paint is hardcore
Ready to spray
Soaking in stripper

After two thick coats off stripper fork and frame still have lots of paint
Going to get the wire wheel out
Lots more to come time is ticking loudly
thanks for looking!
Hey Skip! I had the same problem on a past project. My son works @ O'Reilly Auto Parts & got me a gallon of Klean Strip Aircraft paint stripper. It is kind of a gel & worked great. Brush it on, wait 5 or 10 minutes & hit it with a power washer or hose. Wire wheel works good also & those red scotchbrite scuff pads on a drill work pretty good as well. Can't wait to see your bike painted!
My Favorite Color is Rust!
Looks like your kicked into high coffee gear!
Glad to hear all parts are present and accounted for
You have much more patience than me when it to this stuff.
Keep up the good work!
