Ouch,
that particular plastic hobie is VERY POPULAR with collectors. Depending on condition, I saw em going for $300 few years ago! Little early for me, but I would love one as well. Nice historical deck ya got!!

Knockknock
I buff up 1970s vintage trucks all the time. It is amazing I agree! 
I wipe em down, clean everything with a scour pad, 
then with a hand held power drill attach a metal buffer 
and gently buff 30yrs of whatever away. Beautiful again! 
Others do by hand, etc, and have seen some amazing work. NOS again! Those are first series 430s, fully threaded for the OG bb style or 
seperate bearings! Little more rare than normal 430s. 
Wonder if OG to the hobie you have? Was the plastic riser 
semi imbedded into the wood, make a sucking sound as 
you removed it? Sign is OG to deck if was ridden BITD 
cheers
David

I have a few Hobies...these are all older loose-ball, laminated ones. The waffle in the upper left is kinda unique in that it is one of the last waffles made, and came with amber urethane loose ball wheels rather than clay.

FANTASTIC!!!!
So do you know the story of Super Surfer vs Hobie? On ebay
they sell Super Surfer as a hobie, and its not as wheels say Super Surfer.
Hobie's deck was a super surfer and wheels always said Hobie on em..
PM me if know any history of that....
See my past posts with similar wood decks. Couple are 1970s Hobies, not 60s.

P.S. We can improve greatly on that Hobie Weaver LOL.... Easy to
       refurbish. Or better ones up on the Ebay all the time :----)

HA! That Weaver is next to go under the sander. Hobie/Super Surfer were really one in the same. The Super Surfers being less expensive and usually not laminated. They had brown clays while the laminated Hobies had white.
