El Toro!! Vintage Motorbike or not?

Well here's a question for you, is El Toro an awesome vintage bike? OK how about is it really vintage or is it just old? There are a few clues on the bike itself..

Like the 1972 Peso...

Or the 1983 Lone Star Rally Champion detail.

But if you are familiar with Hollywood's work, you know his unique ability to distress a vehicles paint work to appear like its been there for years.

Yes, this is a NEW paint job.

Hollywood goes to the extreme in his work

Always stretching the boundaries of what can be done in distressed paint techniques. We think El Toro is the best yet

It's easy to admire the simplicity of carrying a line throughout the bike...

It's another to make it look like it's been there for years! Yes, this is still part of a new paint job.

The crackling and rusted areas easily fool most of the die hard cyclists and hot rodders alike.

Here's more details on the head light, including part of a shell casing.

One more detail shot of the tank...
