I have tried to many things to clean this Raleigh folder, soap, dishwashing soap, Kaboom, degreasers and many other things and I just can seem to work.


I tried instead of taking whatever off it just messes up worse, I really need help so if there is anything let me know?

Here are some pictures, I just don't know what that stuff is.

Here it rubbed off because the tire was too wide.

Here I was able to get it off with steel wool but that's chrome not paint wich would mess up the paint if i used that.

it looks like acid rain to me, probably from being left outside for many years, cars have a very strong clear coat which protects the paint, on bicycles the paint is not as well protected

The thing is whatever is on it can come off but with what I don't know.

Well I have figured how to get the stuff off by using really really fine steel wool and a cleaner, I will show pics later.

Try oven cleaner. Let it sit on there for a while then scrub off with steel wool while wearing gloves. The cheapest stuff is the nastiest and will remove clearcoat like crazy and eat most paints.

Or find the cheapest nail polish remover you can - the cheap crap is almost pure acetone which is a paint thinner.

Thanks, I heard about from the bicycle forums i go to but I just don't to use anything that could damage it more than the way I usually do things.

So far what I have been doing is working but I have been too busy to take pictures yet.
