Burley Motorsports VW Syncro Build for SEMA Show 2019

Syncro Build for SEMA Show 2019

Burley Motorsports built the most radical Off-Road Tin-Top Syncro for the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, NV.  Watch as the build takes place in high-definition, transforming this old VW Syncro from top to bottom. 

A very special “Thank you” to:  Radflo Suspension Technology for their sponsorship in the SEMA Show 2019. 

In addition, a special “Thank you” to:  Method Race Wheels, Terrawagen and Sign Creations.  And to Jonathon Schraeder for his help at the finish line! (Method wheels and Terrawagen fender flares are offered here on this site.)
