Beautiful Mach I including those Slicks

I have an NOS set of the Banzai Slicks but they must have bounced around a lot in storage and are nowhere near as nice as yours

Those SpeedSeals are cool too

I've been trying to acquire a complete set of every Banzai brand wheel ( and there are quite a few models) but haven't had much luck

I have a pair of Sunburst, a single amber Cyclone and a set of red Tornados

Oh well, wouldn't be fun of it was easy ;-)

Anyway, great stuff

That is VERY COOL!
Gotta admit, the skate brake kinda makes this extra cool!

Here's another rare Banzai Rim Rider, with Tracker HalfTracks & Excellerator wheels:








Anybody know anything about the fiberglass skate parks mentioned in the sticker on this board?

I like those rare Banzais.  There were just a ton of the aluminum Banzais, but hardly ever see the wood/fibreglass ones.

A little off topic for this thread, but you have me wondering about that sticker too.  For fiberglass parks, there was FyberRider, which I think was on the East Coast (?).

 


Here in the Midwest, we had these fiberglass ramps at the first skate park in Milwaukee.  They were slippery as snot.  Looks like they were made in Ft. Lauderdale.



Sorry, no clue about the Midwest Skateboard Parks Inc.  I'd love to know what or where that was, though.

Looks like they were based here in Wisconsin.  The registered agent was in Phillips, WI, which is way up north.

Recently picked up this killer near mint Banzai complete -- with ACS trucks and really cool Banzai "Stones" wheels -- so far, I have not been able to locate any info on this one. THe deck is laminated ply with a glass coat on the bottom just like a G&S with the brush streaks in the color.

have a look and pass on any info or ad's you may know of --- MerryMerry !!!
