Yep, same here in Oz.
When I was a teenager, we used to take our motorcycle parts to an old time bicycle mechanic who would paint them in baked enamel, do the pintstripes by hand, and sign write "Triumph" or "Harley-Davidson" on the tank all by hand. All for about $30.
Good luck finding anyone to do that today, at any price.
So when I restored my Ironhead recently, I left the old scratched up paint job on the gas tank just to preserve the old guy's handiwork. It would be crime to paint over it.

Guy is skilled for sure, and as for their not being any craftsmen left in the states I call bull shit! Just look around this board and you will find truck loads of skill and god given talent. I do love the guys level of concentration,,,hell it was like he was the only guy in the plant....

I love how he gets his Zen moment (around the 1:13 mark)...totally relaxed, but totally focused. My scatterbrain would seize up trying that.

Awesome vid!

That guy rocks. And he knows it. Inspirational to see real talent in action and not a computer aided robot.

Keep in mind, that man is a machine- he does the same thing over and over all day long. He's bound to get better and quicker as time goes on. I'll be honest I'm that asshole that stands behind the pinstriper as they are layin' lines because it's so damn fascinating!

I'm also jealous.

I came across this video a while ago. Just made me want to quit pinstipping. I guess I have a long ways to go.
