Bike Prep and Painting

Before the bike can be painted all of the stickers and decals need to be removed. This is achieved with the use of a heat gun and a razor blade to remove all the decals.

Once the bike is clean it can be sand blasted. I used https://stripco.com.au/ to blast the bike back to the bare metal to prepare it for painting.

Once the bike is prepped it is ready to be painted. I used https://fitzhenryprestige.com/about.php to paint the frame back to the origianl colour.
