Original Wheel Pinstripes

The lore of the wheel pinstripe always stirs up debate.  Did ALL 3A's have them?  Was it a dealer option?  No one really knows for sure.  What is certain, is that many original 3A's don't have pinstripes, and many do!

From the few photos of wheels I have seen, seems like all pinstripes were black.  You can see in the photo that the pinstripe is centered on the bumpout in the rim.

The pinstripe measures about 3/16" wide and is clearly painted with a brush.  With some sort of a jig, a steady hand, and a sign painters brush, you could easily paint you own pinstripes.  You might even try a sign painter...
