from the pics it looks like the lettering/details are sub graphics or stickers. am i seeing it wrong?

everything you see on the frame is painted on , so no decals or stickers

Kleen Strip Aircraft Paint Stripper is probably the most common on the market. Paint stripper really works best if you take some sandpaper to it first to get a scratch that allows to get under the paint. Next trick is when you do smear it on, wrap it in saran wrap so it keeps from evaporating.

It's a super nasty process that you need to be super careful with, but it does work. The other way is go to town with sandpaper. It'll take you an extra hour maybe, but you'll avoid all the nasty chemicals and pain in the ass cleanup.

before yall get this guy to buy a vat of acid and start a bellyflop tournament, perhaps someone might ask what his intentions are with the frame.
are you going full raw with a clearcoat?
are you painting an old shit bike?
are you putting a custom paintjob on a valuable bike?

i hate paint stripper. i'd rather have my hands on a real stripper.
i suppose too much exposure to either is gonna gross you out sooner or later.

I am planning on raw and clear coat.... This is the bike... I rattle canned it this color in 2017 just sanded the original paint a bit and painted and clear coated it so it has a lot of paint on it....I will probably just try manually sanding it and wire brushing it to remove the paint at this point....
Did have my hands on a real stripper at one point... my first live in girl friend when I was 21 was a stripper,,, she was a hand full !

Next question ? what is the best readily available " like from a hardware store" clear coat spray paint to use for raw steel look? and process... I was planning on just thoroughly cleaning the rawed frame and wiping it down with ascetone or alcohol. and then applying a few coats of clear coat...any other advice or meathods will be highly appreciated... I do usually warm the paint up in a bucket of warm water before applying...

Some of the clear coats you find in auto stores (like Duplicolor) or even hobby stores are definitely higher quality than say the cans you're going to find in Home Depot. The price is worth it IMO.
