Twenty five years ago I made a mistake of wire wheeling the paint off a set of Super Maxys, but I only stripped one arm. I want to chemically strip the other arm this time plus the sprocket. I tried aircraft stripper. It doesn't seem to be budging. What's this stuff made of?! Can anyone give me some advice on the best way to strip them?
Since they are aluminum, what's the best rattle can paint to recoat them that won't be easily rubbed off by my shoe (Just in case I don't polish them)? The bike they're going on won't be ridden alot. Just occasionally. Thanks

the original finish is anodized, which won't come off with paint stripper.

the most common thing to use is EZ-OFF oven cleaner. it may take several applications to remove...

do a site search...there have been plenty of discussions on the subject.

Find your local commercial kitchen supply house.
Get industrial strength oven cleaner.

But USE GLOVES as this will chemically burn you.

And please dispose of properly.

It will evaporate naturally and other than contacting the people you buy the stuff from and finding out how they would dispose of it I wouldn't know what to do properly.

You certainly do not want it going into our water supply man made or natural.

Use it sparingly but work quickly cause it will evaporate.
It's a real SOB to get off if it evaporates on the part ... been there done that.

Thanks for the help. I haven't got the right oven cleaner yet. I tried the cheap Dollar General cleaner. It didn't do the job. I should of known better.
