1983 VDC Gorila 24

VDC Gorila Short (Junior Cruiser)

I finally got this back in the summer after 18 years out of my family. It was my Dad's race bike from the Mid 80's. I am going to restore the bike this summer and will send new pics when done.

Re: 1983 VDC Gorila 24

I'm looking forwad to doing the resto, but my credit card isn't!

I was stuck in 2 minds whether to leave it as it was when my dad raced it with odd colours or whether to Bling it up. Still not convinced I'm doing the right thing but have decided to bling it up. Going to keep all the old parts though.

I've already sourced some parts that I need:-
Perfect repro decal set
NOS Padset
DK Inverted Pro XL Stem Polished (Old text)

Wanted set of Chrome Araya or Ukai 24x1.75 rims or wheel set.

Cheers
Paul
