The problem with leaving the GT160 in Greasy's shop unattended are the free "upgrades" you get.
Need to get out there and grab the Spanish sooner rather than later. (Handle bar tassels and a squeeze horn are probably only days away.)


The rent I pay…

Total guess, as to the origin of this beauty:

A visit to an upholstery shop in Tijuana, 1987.
Hard seize on the way back, after a lunch containing huitlacoche.

I would absolutely rock n roll that bench. I'll admit that I am super partial to 70's metal flake vinyl upholstery. Maybe in the minority, but always a fave; and I like weird shiz. I may even possibly kinda sorta have some plans for a metal flake seat on one of my many many yet-to-be-build projects. I'd say ya got the Super Premium Greasy style hookup right there

That's pimp AF.

I wanna know who made it, because I have a 2-tone cover for my C70 Passport that needs to be replicated with the glitter vinyl treatment.

This really belongs over in SoCal's Project 939 Thread, but I don't think he quite appreciated how we redecorated it while he was offline and it matches the vibe of where this thread is headed, so I'll just drop it here...

You can really see the vision for this project. Gold tassles and a HUGE windscreen would really round this out. oh, and a very tall Ironing board backrest in matching sparkle vinyl of course

With he slate blue base color, I'm feeling more Adam West; less Michael Keaton. Both amazing in their own way. 60's camp is appropriate. Holy 2stroke Smoke Batman! Quick, to the Bat-Scoot!
