I've been wanting to do a build-off for years but the stars never aligned, so I'm excited about finally having something to enter. Using a Dyno Roadster that had long been abandoned after a failed repaint, I decided to go with no paint! I tried a variety of methods for removing the paint but in the end found that scraping the paint off with a razor blade worked best! I was able to save the head badge by 'sawing' through the adhesive with picture hanging wire, worked great! I also wanted to save the 'D' on the seat tube, just 'cause it's cool looking and leaves a little 'original' color.
