Trucks of the past - part 2
The Bennett Rebel™ from 1986.
I don't recall ever seeing any of these.
Mr Bennett was the forerunner of Rockin' Ron with his aerospace technology hype and seemingly low volume supply of goods.
These truks featured...
a twin I-beam mainframe
a recessed shock tower to avoid hang ups and mashed nuts
a specially machined stud king pin
double conical Super Shoks™ 'super resilient, high rebound formula of pure gum, surgical and other space age goop'
fully floating Flexaxle™ 'exclusive soft mounts allow the axle to deflect in it's own dedicated channel'
Stak+Trak Plus, 'precision spacers provide fully adjustable axle widths from 6" to 6" in 0.1" increments'
Direct Drive™ Geometry - Only Mr Bennett fully understands this phenomenon.This is smooth responsive steering at it's finest.
