Hey Gang -

I just put my 1980 Ollie Tank Deck up for auction on eBay.  I spent several months restoring, its fresh and hasn't been ridden since it was refinished.  I hate to let it go, but I have been converted to a BDS guy now, so I am selling it to fund my new BDS addiction

Here's a couple of pic's but there are several more on the eBay posting.  Take a look and enjoy the pics!

I can't help but wonder how it looked before the restoration.

Ha Ha, great question; and here's a funny story to go with it.  I rode this sucker back in the 80's when I was a teen.  After the paint got to many scuffs and the grip started looking shabby, I being an ignorant youth, sanded it down and repainted it Red/Black/Blue with Yin/Yang decals.  It was sharp and looked cool, but I had no idea what I had painted over... What's that they say about hindsight?  Anyway, it sat around for years before I got a wild hair to restore it and ride it with my son.  While I was in the process of finding parts online, I came across Buddy Carr and he turned me on to BDS decks.  He knew I would love them, and damn that dude was right!  So I decided to complete the refinish and put it up for sale so I could buy more BDS stuff.  Ain't life grand being a grown up, ha, ha!

Regards
