Have a question on factory pin stripes. Bought my FXSTC new in Nov. 2009. The day I picked it up while looking it over there was brush mark on the front fender mounting bolt,same color as the silver pin stripes. Sales guy said HD does all pin stripes by hand. Just a few weeks ago I saw a video showing a machine pin striping new HD's. So when did they stop,start hand pin stripes?

Oh and they replaced the fender during the 1000 mile service.

They used to hand pinstripe until think 2011 when they opened up the new paint facility and closed down paint 91.

When I was there, we were still striping by hand, some brushes but mostly paint wheels and using fiberglass bucks so no free handed.
