So here goes...

I bought this Skaterbuilt Mike Maysey Hybrid slalom at Hogtoberfest from "The Bass Player"
Wasn't too keen on the sticker job albeit there were some cool ones on there so set about removing them, all came off without too much trouble and after a quick clean with some brake cleaner to remove the sticker residue it was looking a lot cleaner.

Well a bit late I guess but...
October at Hog Hill is Hogtoberfest time. Full on hill bombing and slalom weekend.
Great weekend, old Guildford Skate Star mate Martin Pavey was over from Oz.
Mentioned it to Trev who just happened to own a Turner Summer Ski deck that used to belong to Martin.
Little did I know that he would give it to Martin as a present.

A Bennett and a Randal.
Both have been narrowed to 110mm. Not sure if these are the Sk8Kings modded Skennett & Skandal.
The Bennett came with Reflex bushings and the Randal has the 35° baseplate, this will need less de-wedging to get the desired angle on the back.

It's a Surf Rodz truck with an adjustable baseplate. It can be adjusted between 60° and 0° in 5° increments so that's turny through to dead.
Not sure what to do with it yet, it's a bit wide at 150mm for a slalom truck but would make a good dead rear truck set up at 0°, 5° or 10°
Might see if I can get it machined down at work. Might be tricky though as the axles screw into the hanger and are secured with grub screws. Not sure if it can be done but we'll see.

Crazy things that turn by the way of pivots and rose joints. Steer more like a car than a skateboard.
