SSR EX-C FIN, 28 years later..
14 x 6", +25.
Early style - painted face, polished tall caps, and full face mounting flange.
A staple in the world of 80's SSR's, but surprisingly difficult to find a good solid set.
I picked these up from YAJ ~6months ago. Complete, neat, and original set of early EX-C Fins; a little hard to resist, despite the odd stud pattern!
It seems a lot more common to find the EX-C Fin (moreso than the mesh) with the full-chrome face, plated fasteners, chrome caps, and notched mounting flange.
..actually, no; now it seems most likely to find a set of those with absolutely fingered chrome, 3 plates, 2 caps, and peeling decals; 14x6 +40 full-reverse, and a recent encounter with a gutter at ~60km/h.. :(
A pressed aluminium plate, and sits slightly above the face.
Early cap anyway; with the polished body instead of chrome, and the black locking mechanism. As what was on the Hiro V-1's, and Meiju Radius' I've posted before.
Faces produced in February 1987..
Done. <3 SSR.
