Cook Bros curbside find

Recommended Posts

I almost never post on this site and just lurk here often . Figured you guys would enjoy this find as most people on the museum could care less.

 

Found this Friday night along with 2 kids electric mopeds and a charcoal grill. I had no idea the bike was even there . I had stopped to see the little mopeds . The bike was buried under the grill and a piece of wood

 

As of now I have not tried removing any paint . The decals were obviously shot to shit before the spray paint . I’m positive they will be completely destroyed with even the least abrasive paint strippers . I know if I tried putting packing tape on the paint the decals would still get mangled once pulled off .

nice find.  

 

i'd definitely try hard not to mess with the decals.  maybe try putting some painters tape (like blue 3M, etc) over them.  it's not as strong an adhesive and shouldn't pull all the silkscreened logos off when you remove them.   then carefully try to scrape the black paint off.   i had some good luck saving the decals on a spray bombed GT before.   it was tedious but it worked.

Finally had a chance yesterday to remove the paint . I won’t even attempt to clean up the stickers .Weeks ago I picked up the frame to put it on a shelf in my basement and the paint and part of the decal literally came right off in my hand. Even though they look like shit I will likely leave them on the frame .

 

Pictures are right after the removed the paint . Still needs a good cleaning , but you get the idea ..
