Default Got mine pinstriped last week at Americade

Spur of the moment thing. He wasn't busy, price was reasonable and I had been thinking about filling in that expanse of white on my XCT.

This pic is when he started to add the blue to the grey he had already done.

Very nice. Pin stripes are cool. Makes the bike look quite a bit different.

Here's one of the trunk. I need to take more photos. The few I have were taken during the process before he was done.

Can't tell from the pics, but looks like he's actually doing it by hand? Very cool! My wife has some extensive striping on her bike too. Always loved the way it looks. Been thinking about doing it to our truck.

Yes he did it by hand with a urethane acrylic paint. I just took some photos out in the garage. The bike is a bit dirty sdince I rode in the rain 4 times since the striping was done. Have to wait a week to wash the bike and 2 weeks before waxing.

Up front I have top say I am mostly happy with the striping but I am not crazy about what he did on the tank. Less would have been fine with me but he got carried away.
