Found this one on craigslist my wife wanted a black and chrome bike. I built her a green one a while back, but she wanted black and chrome so I found this one.
I took all the extra chrome pieces new headlight, new pedals, new tail light, chrome fenders, rebuilt seat and threw this one together. When I brought it home I started stripping all those unnecessary stingray stickers and those horrible flames. Cleaned all the adhesive off, touched up the rust with some 0000 steel wool, got the forks nice and shiny. Went to wally world for some groceries and found these cool OCC stickers for $1. The wife loves OCC so I knew I better get em for her bike, she loves it. Here's some before and after pics.

Yeah, I saw it pretty cool 8)
Stickers are pretty easy to get off. You need to get yourself a razorblade and some goo gone and lots of patience. :idea:

Peel the edge up with blade, try to get far enough under it to pull on it , if you get lucky some of them will peel off easily.
Other people have used heat gun but I didn't have one and my wifedidn't want me using her hair dryer. :roll:
Good Luck :D

Thanks for the advice. I 'm picking up another occ today. It's gonna be the same color(red) as my last one. So this one gets a color change. My lady might want it after seeing your wifes bike. How about a pink and white one? Peace

The wife loves the black and chrome and occ choppers. :D
I love these bikes there cheap easy to work on and even easier to make look good.
Your bike is awesome anticonformity :mrgreen: I'm jealous of all the cool tools you have at your disposal. :shock:
You have a great dad, so cool to see you working together and the level of creativity you both have.

Hey, Jack Sensei I think they actually made a pink and white one maybe you could find one of those.
