That black paint should come off with a elbow grease. Nice find.

It's actually starting to chip off on it's own. Lucky that the PO didn't even sand the plastic!!! It's smooth and shiny underneath!

Anyway, I'm going to try this stuff:

Years ago, I stripped a thick layer of yellow paint off of a XR80 that some kid wanted to turn into an RM. I used Strip-Eze and it worked awesome, but couldn't find it at Lowes. So the Goof Off gets the next "Consumer Report". I will post on the effectiveness. :shades:

I found out what was wrong with the free IT175.
No such thing as a free lunch, but I'm still not complaining!

Bwaahahaha! I got lucky with a sled motor that looked like that, but it still had bearings. This is a one-piece crank. Let the soaking begin!
Yeah, gotta love chatting after a good ride! Your bike looked great too. Glad you got it together in time!

The threads and the case have become one.

Already drilled, hoping they would free up but it doesn't look like its happening.

Use a reverse cut drill bit, I get most bolts out with those and hardly ever have to use an easy out.
