Picture of Bike Fork Graphics Removal

Step 1: So I Hated The Printed Decals On My Forks

Picture of So I Hated The Printed Decals On My Forks
Got a good deal on some new forks for my mountain bike but I hated the graphics. Mostly because I don't want anyone to know I'm riding RST shocks... So I wanted to remove them. Trouble is they're not just decals. Some chump decided to print them on the fork. On a whim I decided to see if adhesive tape might remove it... SUCKSESS!!

I'd say be really certain the graphic is paint and not a label with adhesive. If it's a really good adhesive like 3M 467, you'll be a long time trying to get the residue off. Also if it's paint on paint be careful - if the base paint is epoxy powder then you're probably safe with this approach.

Nice one! Gaudy graphics on everything make me want to find another species to be a part of.
