    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    That's both artistry and craftsmanship. That is exactly like they way they used to do it with the BMWs when they came with that pinstriping.
    It dresses up a bike or car real nice.

    Actually - BMW still does it the same way. When I was first looking at the '07 (and '08, '09) "Classic" R1200R - there was a video around showing the ladies in Berlin hand-pinstriping the tanks. Still done by hand, but the improvement over the old way it was done - it's clear-coated after the pinstripe is done. So it won't polish out (as I've done on older BMWs.)

    There are a few chaps I've seen at national rallies who have equal skills.. what always amazes me is HOW easy it looks when they do it, and you just know - it's only easy because of years of practice.

    In watching the video again, I notice that he is not doing this freehand, there is a pattern that has already been put on the tank and he follows it.
    Regardless, I would have gone off the line he is following within the first few inches.
