Totally cleaned and rebuild this '98 Rockhopper using most of the original parts. Greased everything, only replaced saddle, stem, handlebars, brakes and threw on some vintage tyres. Ordered some Continental X-King tyres so i can really use it on the track.

Unfortunately some idiot painted some parts of the headtube, any tips on cleaning that?

I am gonna use this bike on the flat singlestracks here in the Netherlands, might rebuild it to a 650B singlespeed in the summer.
