1982 VDC Gorila 24

1982 VDC Gorila 24

Early design VDC Gorilla 24

I have not been able to find another like this one. It was built in September of 1982 and it has GHP looking seat stays! I believe this was built before the GHP though. I contacted Voris but he said he can't remember how many of these he built before he changed the design. GAry has a VDC Advertisement picture in his Gorilla submission and you can see the GHP lines in the ad. My bike also came with almost identical parts as the one pictured in the ad. Its original chrome and decals, all I changed from when I found it was the grips, seat, tires and just recently threw on some 400's I got from another purchase. Have to say this thing rides great!
