    Its from about 1990. And its got knights stuff on the bottom like a shield, helmet, mace or spiked ball on-a-chain, etc. Its also got a graphic on the top and its covered with that grip tape, but its that clear grip tape. I hardly ever used it because I lived on a farm and right after I got it they told us we couldnt bring them to school any more for liability reasons.

    Ahhh, the memories. I used to have a Rob Roskop 2 (sp?), a Gator, and a Powel Peralta (at one time or another) in grade school. Don't have them anymore though...

    No idea, I should caveat all this by saying it was at my parents from the time that I got it in 1990ish until I tried to sell it when I was in college (around 2000) and then I sent it back home. I will have to make sure they still have it and then take a closer look at it.

    Mike,

    I built a Powell/Peralta board in 1987. It was the R.I.P. graphic. Should still be hanging in my parent's garage. Any interest? What would you pay?

    Hi Mike,
    hmmm... maybe I should get you my logan earth ski and my original jay adams z-flex... not! [​IMG] Seeing as I haven't gotten them yet. What period are you most interested in? I'll keep my eyes out around here; the kids here were mostly World slaves (plan b, 101, world, blind). I actually liked that period. Rodney in a recent interview said that that period was some of his best skating ever (questionable/virtual reality era). I actually saw kids forgo the wheels; just skated on bearings. No joke.
    As for me, I'm just chillin with my Gravity longboard for cruising and my Shorty's Muska for flippity floppity work. [​IMG]
    What u skatin, Mike?

    Charles, please check and get back to me. Thanks.

    Scott, I am interested. What condition is it in? Can you get a photo? Thanks.

    Kevin, Early 90's Plan B, World, Blind, 101 is actually my favorite, but I am looking for anything pre-1996 that you have or you can get. Please get back to me. Thanks!!!

    Mike, the good news is, I will probably be picking the board up from my parents this weekend. I will let you know more details about what exactly it is.

    Well, I have a really weird piece of garbage board, definitely pre-'96. It's a big cheap board with the American flag as the graphic on the bottom, but I put a lot of dumb-ass stickers and quotes all over it. It looks incredibly lame and juvenile. I also put some big-ass orange wheels on it- basically removed everything from the board and replaced with some decent stuff. It's... weird.
    But you can have it if you want. It will provide endless hours of "I can't believe how corny this is!" type jokes. [​IMG]

    Mike Boettner, what is the graphic on the board? Also what color is it? Could you get a photo? Thanks.

    Mike Broadman, what else is on the graphic that actually came with the new board, not counting stickers you put on? What company is it from? THanks!

    I sent you pictures of my board, and you never responded, so it's the other way around.
