I am looking at a used bike with some pieces of trim that I would prefer to remove. How easy is it and what does the end result look like?

Thanks in advance.

Is it on with double sided sticky tape?
I've heard of taking a real small fishing line and slide it in between the trim and the bike to cut through the tape.
Then take the tape off the bike with remover.

To be a little more specific, once you've removed the trim as suggested, something like GooGone works really well to remove any remaining adhesive. It's usually not a difficult task, and once completed, you'll never know the trim had been there - unless it's a dark-colored bike and there's been some fading of the color!

Wait a couple years and it will fall off like my front fender trim did

Heat the trim with a hair dryer. Peal the piece off. Use Goo Gone to remove any trace of the glue.

Glued parts

After removing the shark gills, just put the chrome center piece cover on to cover up the glue residue. Kury sells that also.
