Isn't that a C-10 or is it the C-15(4x4). I had a budy that owned a couple custom c-10s one was made into a dually so I guess it was a custom custom c-10.

There was a Nishiki mountain bike in the local craig's for $45, but the guy didn't know enough about it. To far to drive to check it out. Now I'm picking up a mid 90's Cannondale M1000 on Thursday.

Looks like a 70-71 C-15 CST Serria 4x4... The large hubs,eight lug wheels are 4x4 only...The trim is CST (Custom Serria Trim),The fuel tank filler door like that was only availble in 70-71, 67-69 was just a hinged door,not the lockable one.

Nice bikes by the way

Earlier today when I posted that I realized/forgot their were c-10 & c-20s. Just missed-catigorized them with the little chevy s-10 and gmc s-15s. But you're right it's a c-20. I didn't give it much thought with 8-lugs and step sides.

Yeah, that fuel door was definately added on recently. They wouldn't use screws that would rust.

That is just what happens when you use such an alluring vehicle as a backdrop. You should have used something plain and unassuming like an Aston Martin DB5.
