Yeah they are. Back trucks are trackers. I bought 3 old boards on ebay, on had megatrons with sims snakes. It was a nice suprise. Do you think they are worth something?

I finished the 8 wheeler today. Set it up for a crusiser, it goes great but will take a while to get the hang of it.

Well the most common sort after truck of yesteryear would probably be Lazers or 101s at the moment, around 100 clams a piece. I think most owned Megatrons just out of hyped up advertising and sheer eye candy but they did turn well. Probably a bit of a waste on an Toft design. Id be whacking them on a small cruiser myself or grinding them on some pebble crete coping, their loud as. Id say 70-80 rats a piece for one in as gooda nik as yours look in. Or you can swap them with me for a set of Trackers.

mmm, I did have them on a small cruiser but the are just to small for anything. They go good on the 8 wheeler so I will leave them on there for now.

Thanks for the info Smile

this is my latest ride.
i've changed the wood i've been using , with thanks to Carl. this board is a shade under 42" long and it has virtually no flex.
I've now decided to make and sell a few boards, just so i can keep making them.
I'm not sure of what price is resonable for a home made board. any input would be appreciated.
cheers

Hi Paul,
Is this the deck you had at the ditch,(i think it is), you need a front on shot
to show off the beaut lookin concave and a side on shot to show off any camber.
The concave on the big front end looked the goods for a stable front foot
placement in a ditch,
i'd like a roll next time to try it out,
please.
Wayne.
