  1. Hi Everyone,

    I've been lurking here for a while, mostly in the cruiser area. Yea, anyway, i've been teaching myself to pinstripe for the last 8 - 10 weeks. I've been doing a lot of practice but recently started throwing lines on my paintbox, and some guards a mate let me borrow to practice on.

    Comments and critics are more than welcome!:)

  2. Looks good Addict that would take a steady hand
  3. how da fkuc
  4. Mack 000 and 1-Shot.......lol
  5. That's a pretty amazing skill mate. And so symmetrical!
    If this ability to make such a smooth line with a brush, can be matched with the same smooth line around a corner, as a rider, you'll have it made.

  13. Good stuff! Great to see someone taking up what's a dying art currently :(

    Hot rodders will love it, they kill for the traditional brushed pin stripes

    Thanks for the kind comments guys...There are some very talented pinheads in Australia. One day I hope to be nearly as good! lol.

    Finished the front of my paint box today with a nice border......then my helmet kinda got in the way.

  17. Not into tattoos, but if I was, I have one of your designs, they're great!
  18. You can paint my HD if you want. Free of charge - no problems.
  19. I'd be happy to paint your bike gratis mate, unfortunately I'm a long way from the Mornington Peninsula.

    If you find yourself in Brisbane in the next 12 weeks, give me a message.;)

    Thanks for the kind words Petesul!
  20. Hmmmm I think I would have to charge you if you want me to come all the way up there JUST for you to paint it. :p kidding kidding...

    although I do love QLD....
    Could you sand it back, pin it, top coat it? Cause that might be worth the trip......
