Hand painting pinstripes on an Enfield tank

Here is a video of pinstripes being hand painted on an Enfield tank in India, a man of great skill.

I've seen it before too but it's always worth clicking on. At his rate he can do about 17 tanks per hour

I'd have that paint smeared all over the tank on my clothes and my bald head.

I've got an example of his work sitting in my garage right now on my 2008 Bullet classic. British Racing Green with gold pinstripes. Actually the straightest, cleanest thing on the whole bike, even when new.
