I just came by this Roadmaster in very nice condition. Unfortunately, someone has applied reflective tape many years ago on the tank and fenders. I have read some threads on removing such tape, such as a hair dryer/heat gun, and chemical removers such as for decals. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried hot/boiling water? I think it would not harm the paint, and would likely loosen the adhesive.
The bike has otherwise retained much of its original paint, and there is minimal rust. I would what ever necessary to remove this unsightly tape, and not harm the underlying paint.
Any advice would be appreciated, and thanks for taking the time to read.
