If youre going to spray paint them youre better off sanding them either by hand or with an electric sander until raw. Then soak the bottom of the forks in WD-40 for an hour, scrub with a wire brush, and repeat throughout the day. Then at night dump out the wd-40 and put more in whatever container youre using and soak the entire forks over night and scrub extra thorough the next day. Wash thoroughly with water and dry with a towel. Then give the forks a scrub with a rag and either paint thinner, nail polish remover, or hydrogen peroxide (a strong chemical that evaporates quickly.) Tape off the entire steerer tube and add an even light coat of primer ever 20-25mins for 2-3 hours and let dry for 1.5 hours in atleast room temperature. Lightly sand any flaws until smooth and do the exact same thing with the paint that you did with the primer until youve used a full can. BE VERY CAREFUL, you cant sand the flaws out of this step! Let dry over night at atleast room temperature. Now apply clearcoat in the same manner as the paint/primer for 1.5-2hours and let dry for atleast 12hours before handling.
Goodluck.

I would say sand them with any sandpaper you can find then smooth it with a high grit to smooth it out more. Your paint is bubbling so the rust is forming under some of the paint aswell.

Yeah these are older Odyssey forks. I dont think theres any way to tell them apart. Theyre either Cs2s or Dirt Classics. I had a pair a few years ago that i got for $15 used. Ended up giving em to the homie for the free and hes still bashing the shit out of them every day. Some good ass forks yo.
