What is Pinstriping?
Pinstriping is the key to getting that special touch on your classic bike. It is done by applying a very thin line of special paint or pinstripe. Artists who need finesse use a pinstriping brush which is the best option for freehand pinstripers. The brushes come in various designs: from swords to flats, daggers, among others. It's up to the graphic artist to choose what works best for their designs.
Custom bikes designed by Choppers Inc. and Indian Larry are the most popular pinstriping exhibits. But the godfathers of what's popularly known as motorbike pinstriping are Kenny Howard, Dennis Gibbish, Dean Jefferies, and Big Daddy (Ed Roth).
