I do love watching things being made and yeah, that pinstriping is cool.

Dang...that guy laying the striping makes it look so easy.

My in-laws live in NW Iowa and I plan to take a visit to the Indian plant some day. I think that would be cool to see. I remember in HS going through one of the John Deere plants. I'm fascinated watching how things are assembled.

What I find fascinating is the jigs and fixtures they use to machine and assemble them. If you have ever spent 30 min. putting valves in a head then you can appreciate the machine that puts them in in about 15 seconds.

I love the final checker guys, that would be my job, I would love it ...........Start, run through the gears , take it out. (y)

This is another motorcycle with hand pinstriping.
I want the Halcyon 250, it would be fun around town and fun for the local festivals.
Plus most of it is made in the US.

I'll watch any video or show about motorcycle fabrication! Love to see custom fabricators do their thing and am fascinated by assembly lines too. It's a guy thing...
