Motorcycle Helmets Pinstriped

Motorcycles Pinstriping

Pinstriping can commonly be seen exhibited on custom motorcycles, such as those built by Choppers Inc., Indian Larry , and West Coast Choppers. The decorative use of pin striping on motorcycles as it is commonly seen today was pioneered by artists Kenny Howard AKA Von Dutch Dutch and Dean Jeffries, both of whom are considered pioneers of the Kustom Kulture lifestyle that spawned in the early 1950s, and are widely recognized as the "originators of modern pin striping."

Pin Stripe/ Pinstriping

Pin striping (pinstriping) is the application of a very thin line of paint or other material called a pin stripe, and is generally used for decoration. Freehand pin stripers use a specialty brush known as a pinstriping brush. Fine lines in textiles are also called pin stripe.

Automotive, bike shops, and do-it-yourself car and motorcycle mechanics use paint pin striping to create their own custom look on the automotive bodies and parts.

Pinstriping was created in the early 19th century

Its kind of crazy that Pinstriping has been around for so long, In fact it's origins can be traced throughout history, back prior to the roman empire whose designs embellished a myriad of objects in their every day life. Cool HuH.... From Gypsy Wagons to 19th century fire trucks, tracing a line to the beginnings of our human society.
