So I asked the same question on the chemistry forums. They came up with interesting answers. For those who are curious: http://chemistry.stackexchange.com/questions/32831/how-to-detect-lead-paint-on-a-bicycle Btw, I've tried scratching a bit of paint off the frame. It works just fine without chemical stripper. Won't take more than a few hours!
Rough up the paint with sandpaper, and then use Aircraft Remover to get the paint off, if you try to sand it, you'll go crazy. DO NOT use aircraft remover inside, and wear a filter mask, it will make you sick if you don't. It will rip the paint right off. http://www.rustoleum.com/product-catalog/consumer-brands/auto/paint-chemicals/aircraft-remover
