Use a good paint stripper and be patient with it. Don't sand your frame after, just let the paint stripper do its work. Make sure the frame is clean and grease/oil free. Use good quality clear and just follow the instructions on the can

i've read that powder coated stuff is a lot harder to strip with paint stripper
now im not sure if my frame has regular paint or powder coat

Yeah powder is harder to get off, it just takes more patience. You could always get it sand blasted? Sanding takes forever, and it's hard to get a consistent finish

I've removed powdercoat before for parts for my motorcycles and campervan before recoating stuff myself a different colour, If your in the states get hold of "aircraft paint remover" it contains Methylene Chloride which is the active ingredient that will remove powdercoat, here in Europe its next to impossible to get a paint stripper that contains it as the EU banned it being used in stripper cos its pretty nasty stuff that will damage your health so DO IT OUTSIDE, I bought Methylene Chloride itself off ebay and add it to an off the shelf stripper, to help it work scuff up the frame with some sandpaper first then get a bin bag to put your parts in after you cover it in the stripper, the reason for the bin bag is the active ingredient evaporates away in that well ventilated area you need to be in, so putting stuff in a bag prevents that and keeps it working longer.

i live in europe too and i've never seen anyone use paint stripper
i will try to find one and put it on somewhere (maybe dropout) and see if it works
if not, can i just order aircraft stripper from ebay?

you can, but it was turning out to be pretty pricey by the time shipping from the states was added, not to mention i wasn't sure whether it would have got through customs or not, so i just bought a litre of Methylene Chloride itself and added it to stripper i had lying around, hell I've heard of guys mixing it into wallpaper paste as it keeps it in a workable gel form
