The Spanish Lady

As the brand and store continue to expand, Mahmut realized that we needed to find a more efficient way to transport stock, bikes and all our other project ideas from 'A' to 'B' and thus came the purchase of the new Coban-Mobile. Aptly named 'The Spanish Lady,' after a chance encounter with a wild raging Bull, a scandalous family feud and a beautiful Spaniard with a smile and body to kill... Okay, that was a lie. Mahmut named the truck after the street name 'Spanish Lane' where the Defender was originally parked when he purchased the car. But, the former story is so much more fun to tell! 

And it's always fun to tell tales of the dear Spanish Lady and all the adventures we've had together thus far. She is as tough as they come and a beast on and off the roads and an essential member of the Coban Family.
Below are two clips featuring the Spanish Lady including Oliver Masters original retouching of the paint job, and a more recent video of the two boys, Ruhi and Mahmut having some fun off road
