Cleaning the fork legs

Here is a sequence showing the fork leg cleanup. Notice the yellowing of the clear coat and the remenants of an old inspection sticker

Here is the stripper doing it's thing. I left it on for about 5 minutes or so.

After wiping off the stripper I was left with a very clean and somewhat shiny for leg.

The next step was to polish the fork legs up. They actually turned out a little too shiny so I'll have to use something to dull them up a bit. I'd like to have them look more like the original factory finish than some type of show finish.

Here is there "legless" bike all by itself Next to come off is the headlight ears and shell.
