I'll post pics and try to get hold of the owner and ask him a few questions.

I think they are from an Esteem? Interesting place to mount the opening for the gas cylinder though!
Speaking of which, what kind of LPG cylinder would fit into the "boot" of an SS80??!!

It's suddenly raining SS80s, that too chocolate SS80s here! Here's one I saw in Secunderabad today. I reckon it's an original DX? 'seems to have the leather seat-covers on too. 'didnt go too close to check it out though. The pic. of the rear looks hazy because of the sunlight that was falling across then.

And here are 2 old photos (circa 2003) I scanned among many other archived pics. of mine, of a rather battered but nearly complete SS80 I saw at Beach road, Vizag.

It's currently at the same spot where I photo'd it, parked there only. There is another DX in the same colour that is also parked outside that apartment, which I'd posted once earlier.
If it's there for some time longer, I'll go taker a closer look at it once.
