Default 1984 Burton Backhill with Original Custom Paint Job

I came across this Burton Backhill today and was wondering if anyone had ever saw one with an original custom paint job. If it didn't come this way, it looks like it was done soon after purchase. Anyone ever seen something like this? I will be selling it if anyone is interested in making an offer.

Holy cow its scary just looking at that thing.

Did people used to ride those? No wonder snowboarders still carry that stigma of being out of control and dangerous.

I beleive the paint job was done after purchase .
Too bad because it would have been a collectors piece .

I still have the Team issue Performer that was used at the 1984 US open .Back then it was called The Eastern Nationals .
This board featured a second strap to hold down your heels during front side craves.It also had a p-tex base with metal edges.
There were no more than a dozen or so made .I puchased one at the event ,which at that time was held at Snow Valley .
I'm planning on bringing it down to Burton HQ to have it authenticated by hopefully Jake himself,perhaps he'll still remember
selling me the board in the first place .
