Had since new. Original finish and decals all around.

My dad bought it thru Jeremy McGraths dad when we raced locally. Do to shipping error, Voris ended up bringing out the frame set.Saturday night took my Silver Streak apart and assembled the VDC Sunday morning. Parked the bike end of 84 when I got into old cars.

Re: 1984 VDC Changa Long

I've come back to look at this so many times I feel like a stalker!! big_smile  One of the things I really like about it (apart from the colour, the story, etc, etc) is that I think you've kept it as it was, opc and all. So many of these get blinged out with 401s and so on but this is still rockin' the Takagi one piece. Very cool

Re: 1984 VDC Changa Long

Thanks for the comments everybody. Took the bike out to a track day a few months ago and had fun, looking forward to getting a chance to do it again next month.
