i recently bought a springer front end that was painted black. while moving it around i scratched it and found good chrome underneath, so my question is how do i remove the paint without damaging the chrome cause i don't want to pay to re-chrome it

Chrome is very strong / robust. At an angle, you can run a razor blade or a paint scraper or similar across it and as long as the pressure is not great the chrome will not scratch. Gently. I guess it IS metal. I'm not sure if there is shitty chrome that scratches easily.

I use paint stripper on chrome often, unless its etch primed it comes off easy, and I've never had it damage chrome.

like Pete said test it somewhere inconspicuous
+1 on this option. I have cleaned cellulose paint off with paint stripper, that stuff you get from a hardware store for stripping household paints. It works real well and I just used some fine wire wool to help it along.

Cheers Dan.
