Sent a PM, but not sure I solved it...
So if others have, chime in LOL.

P.S. Not Vintage, but maybe they have some re-issues floating
     around that did not sell. Check this page out. Fantastic I think!

......ummmm   I would think he was looking for OG style,  David you don't have any reissue trucks on your beloved original Santa Cruz decks do you?  oh wait I'm asking the guy who puts SC screaming hand stickers on 70's boards and paints truck washers blue and red       back to the hunt

WW....
1) I love those God Damn Stickers and they freaking will come off easy
   if I ever sell   

2) I sent a PM about OG set I have if he wants for a break even price
THE PROBLEM IS you "non vintage younger man" skater, he did not provide
the size/width or style of the makaha. They made lots of different styles
from Plastic to Wood 1973-79-ish. So I attached the Makaha page LOL...
Cheers
David

I bet he's looking for those fucking staggered bolt pattern baseplate ones.They have different baseplate bolt widths which always fucked with my head.Better yet,go get one of those "makaha" decks on eBay.The ones that look just like the stack of MPI decks I have,except they're all 25" ones.

No, just oldschool pattern, thats all. I'm not that familiar with MAKAHA, I think I remember something wider that what you find on those plastic dime store decks!

Eggman, when can I come over and give you back that NOS green kryptonics 60mm wheel and raid your wide tail dome stash for something for my FOAMCORE??? and while I'm there try to talk you out of one of your glass Tunnell kicktail decks??? Or you could come see my modest collection, only 5 minutes from you.

and Pimp!!!! Let me know what you dig up!!! OK

Dats what I was talking about in my PM to you Ouch.
VonWolf posted em perfect. See the Makaha truck plates in his picture,
they widen slightly, skater could adjust em? Was a Makaha thang!!
That is why I asked if truck holes on your deck were drilled yet?
If drilled old school or vintage, then Makaha trucks probably will not work,
or ya gotta redrill deck...

My Makaha rider has Lazers.. Pic attached....

cheers
David

Ouch...
I sent same pics only to your home email, with no "essay dave" notes, thank god eh!?
Makaha Pro Trucks 2 angles. Note the baseplate flair/widening thingy
Makaha Truck next to Bennett Pro for size difference.
I think  your deck needs wider trucks, but that is IMHO. No idea sizing of the
widest/wider Makaha Trucks, if were made... These are off a early issue plastic
Makaha 24 inch length, probably 6 inch wide.....1975-76 made I think.
cheers
David
