So far so good.
The three major painted parts are cleaned up. I used the pictured Krud Kutter and steel wool. For this frame and paint that worked the best, I tried a number of different things experimenting until I found what worked the best.
The darts and pinstripping are the most fragile. The red stripping was wiping off with soap and water, (it was so deteriorated) .

Thanks for sharing the use of Krud kutter. I've been using this on chrome with a brass bristle brush for years with great results. Bike looks great.

I can't believe how much paint there was left under the rust, great job breathing new life into this ride!
Did you put the whole frame in a bath of Krud Kutter or wipe it on and wipe it off?

I always think of the old Palmolive commercial, "You're soaking in it..."

I used Krud Kutter and steel wool, one small patch at a time, wiping it down with a dry towel as I went.
