VDC GORILLA FINISHED, it's been a long time coming. PIC HEAVY

Seems like a liftetime ago I bought this frameset but finally, it is finished. Most of the parts came from here on the museum and if you have had any input on parts for this build I thank you very much. Everything is either NOS, OG Mint or Refinished. I did intend to use a really nice Studd Chainwheel and NOS Studd bolts I have but they just didnt sit right so the back up Pro Neck done the job nicely.

Once again I gotta take my hat of to Steve69 who laced the wheels then put this beast together for me, Awesome guy and I thank you big time mate. cool

VDC Gorilla Frameset
OG VDC Cruiser Monkey Bars, one of 4? sets known to exist
Repop VDC Padset
