    1980's old school skateboards

    So I was feeling nostalgic and dug out my old Monty Nolder skateboard from my high school days (1984 ish). Independent trucks, Powell Peralta Crossbones wheels, Bones bearings. Do I dare and take it for a skate? ATTGATT right? So anyhow, anyone out there with 80's skateboards hiding in there closets, post up pics, cheers

    I spent a lot of my time working, scraping together money to build my skateboards when I was kid.. for a long time they were my only mode of transportation. I loved that stuff, hanging at the bowl , Cal Streets, PT's skate shop, Thrasher and Transworld mags.
    I finally got my dream set up, a blue Roskopp #3 gull wing trucks and kryptonite wheels. .Then it got stolen and I quit cold turkey. sigh. I wish I still had it. I got back into boards years later with the "new" twin tip trick boards with little wheels, but soon moved onto other things again.

    Those Tony Hawk and Steve Caballero decks, or any original Bones Brigades NOS decks are going for some serious coin now, even in thrashed condition. I've seen from $500 up to $1700 depending on condition. I had a Hosoi Hammerhead and a Gater deck with Gullwing trucks too. Sigh.

    I had a McGill, Tracker trucks, Sims wheels, it got stolen. What a pissoff that was.

    Yea, my roomate's been at this for a while now, he's well aware of some of the prices. (http://www.artofskateboarding.com/ is great for this). He's a 'picker' tho, so he never pays retail!

    Apparently, in mint condition, my 93' mullen yoda slick is anywhere from $1000-$1500!... and here I was.. just grinding the shit out of it!

    I was looking into old skateboards and the new retro boards awhile back just out of curiosity.
    Like Carbonfiberocket says some of the old stuff is worth a few bucks especially those old bouncy aluminum decks ,duraflex or silver streak maybe?
    Personally I liked the concave decks.

    I've got DVD versions of Future Primitive and The Search for Animal Chin at home, but I just ordered this Bluray, Bones Brigade: Autobiography (that's been out for a frikkin' year now and I never looked for it). It looks awesome for anyone who followed the pioneers of skating.

    anybody here ever build a half-pipe in their backyard?

    my buddy next and i (we had to be about 14 or so) put one in his yard with lots of "donated" lumber. when we were talking about building it it was all about sourcing the right transitions for the ramp. his neighbour had a couple of great danes and when we were on the ramp they would run back and forth along the fence line following us on the ramp.
    *** every move should be calculated ***

    This McGill is sah-weet. The reason it's sweet to me is because this is the one that got stolen....25 years old, never skated

    I'd like that Hutch hanging from the ceiling.
