I was wondering what ever happened to the Gonzalez Binding Company?? I know Ricky has the new Gator for this year but what happened to his company? I did a quick google & could find any info.

I don't think it ever even got out of the gate. Not sure though.
The new Gonzalez Bindings from Gator are really tight though, I definitely recommend checking them out if you are looking.

The Gonzales binding CO. isnt around anymore,I Have the Gonzalez bindings with Gator and We took our time on getting these right with the style and the make of them. If you get a chance you should try them out.

Thanks

Ricky - I will definitly be trying the new ones out. I was just flipping through an old buyers guide the other day & came across them. Did a quick search & nothing really came up, so i just thought I'd ask on here.... Plus I really like the hard to get gear....

Sell your boat yet?

I'm still riding my Nice RG-1s which later became the Gonzalez Bindings for the binding co. I'm pretty bummed that style isn't around anymore because they are still the best imo!!!

Yeah myself and others liked those bindings alot too.. they were really comfortable.. I really like my gonzales bindings with gator too so I'm happy that it worked out.

No, I havent sold my boat yet, its still for sale... 50,000 keep your eyes out for someone who wants a boat.

Thanks

62 lincoln...guessing its a continental???
Ive been in search for a 62-64 for a while. Almost pulled the trigger on a 68 a couple weeks ago but didnt want to settle for that body style.
plans are juice and 22s, preferably a convertible. any pics of yours Ricky?

I say do bags if you want it to drive somewhat decent. Do an airride strut bag set up with auto fill valves

Gator bindings are very high quality. Have '07 Saints and they treat my feet well.

goride,
juice can be a great ride if engineered and done right. I have a 2003 gmc sierra on bags and while it is anmazing ride Ireally want juice next.
I know the contis are a unibody, which I dont like in terms of stress, and which would then limit being able to 3 wheel. eh.. it's all talk until i actually find a decent lincoln.

I highly suggest airbags over hydro too, the ride quality is 1000x better. Also, unless you don't mind doing a ton of chopping and hacking, or don't mind not laying out on the frame, you may want to consider 20s over 22s.

/hijack over, sorry

nice ricky. looks dope.

and steve... trust me Ive debated it. I've owned/currently own rides on bags.
The suspension will be done by a friend who builds sema vehicles every year and it wont be my daily driver. And I know the challenges of laying out on 22s... thats part of the fun.
