A rare opportunity to own a piece of 70’s skateboarding history. Some of the coolest kids managed to resist the temptation of the hugely successful glamour and bad boy deck companies and rode RMI. Regarded as a semi-pro deck, very tactile with a great design aesthetic and strength in performance. Prepared ready for either display or use we offer for sale the following - - Vintage 1970s RMI 25’’ double kicktail, contoured skateboard deck from the ‘Pro Board’ collection made by Leisure Industries Inc of America. Solid Walnut construction with die cut grip tape. - Vintage 1970s ACS 651 trucks by American Cycle Systems of California. - Brand new 60mm Orange Hot Juice OJ lll wheels with new precision sealed ABEC bearings and spacers. - Authorised OJs decal. The deck is in very good condition falling into the category of new old stock, the underside is machined with a central riser rib for strength whilst achieving good wheel clearance. The double kicktail aids performing freestyle tricks and ‘drop-ins’ The ACS trucks are previously used including some graze marks. Rubber bushings are working as they should and have lots of life left in them. Wheels and bearing were purchased new ahead of this listing, the OJ’s have received great reviews through the decades offering good feedback, quiet and fast running. The high quality authorised OJ’s decal has been added to the board to compliment the set up and help those memories come flooding back. £325.00 including postage to U.K. zone 1 addresses.
