Exactly my question as well. Whatever you used was exactly the right stuff and the right touch. If you're recovering good decals and pinstripes under the over-paint, you're doing exactly the right thing (that and the person who painted it didn't do any prep, but that's another matter).

I tested 5 different strippers to see how each worked, I narrowed down to 2, one for taking the heavy top coat off and the second for taking the light second coat off, I used acetone and Q tips and cotton balls to remove the thin first coat of yellow paint and was careful not to go too far and remove the original, long process but worth it.

What is it with English bikes and yellow paint? 🙁

This is my Dawes I'd like to identify, so getting the yellow off has been the last resort plan for a while. Your post inspires me to just go do it. 👍

Narrowed it down to late seventies Mirage or Double Blue:
