I thought I'd try and make my 8 wheeler a bit more rideable. When I bought it I thought that a 33.5" x 13" deck with a 18.5" wheelbase sounded good. However it was very unmanageable with the long wheelbase. After chatting with my mate Loco Larry I decided to move the front trucks back, it now has a 15.875" wheelbase and has lost a few inches from the nose in a Lonnie Toft snub-nose inspired look.
I also took the time to replace the bushings with Bones Soft Hardcores all round while I had it stripped down.
