I like scalloped potatoes when they are crunchy on the top...

Ooooh, scallop paint jobs look sharp. What's the trip to painting them? Paint the entire tank/body the light color and then mask off what you want to keep? Even while masking, that takes a good eye and steady hand with the scalpel.

Just tryin to get some ideas. I know that there are many ways to do em but I am looking for some REAL old school bikes that were done years ago to see how they were done. I can certainly do it myself. I have done a few on photoshop but wanted to see some on real bikes too. Thanks anyhow, you really helped, good job!!
