Royal Enfield Bullet tank striping
At the Royal Enfield motorcycle factory in Chennai, India, pinstriping is still done by hand. And not just any hand—one of two brothers stripes each tank using a single brush to create both the thick and thin lines in a graceful arc. It’s a family tradition for the Kumar brothers, whose uncle joined Royal Enfield as a pinstriper back in 1957.
