Re: 1983 VDC Gorila 24

The handlebars are very rare VDC pit bike bars and were not Powerlite. They have VDC decals on them and are obviously a Monkey bar made by VDC. Did Voris make Powerlite stuff? I think he made bars seatposts forks and frames for just about every company at one time or another.
