Hello everyone, my names Scott from the beautiful dirt road backwoods of Romeo,Michigan.  I just turned 50, but always in Love with skateboards since street riding my 1st skateboard summers of 76-77 a white Fibreflex Kicktail (still have) with ACS 560s-1st gen yellow Kryptos & yellow Space plate, that i received in a trade for my bike, LOL.

in early April 1978 a Skateboard Shop opened up super close nearby (Harper rd) & i was in heaven (11yrs old).  i saved money to buy 2 new green Kryptos (still on it) & rode it for a few months until finally reaching the pinnacle (was a Detroit newspaper boy,so had the money) of buying my 1st deck as i wanted it (still have).  'give me Warptail II, i'll take ACS 580's, with 2 of the red rubber risers...  picking out the wheels was a tough decision, new orange OJs?  more new green Kryptos? or the baddest (most expensive of all) new white Bones?

i choose the Bones (they had red lettering back side) & the salesman gave me the red Bones sticker thats on it.  i remember being bummed wanting a red Space Plate but all they had was yellow (same as my Fibreflex).   it was like night-day riding it compared to the Fibreflex.  somewheres along the line yrs later the orig.Bones disappeared, mom threw away?...  will send pictures after 1st figure out how to paste-send them. Thanks BDS, Scott.

Welcome from across the pond in Milwaukee.  My first decent skateboard was a Warp Tail Two also.

You have to host your photos on another site, like Photobucket.  Then you can post the pictures here.
