I heard that they are. From the early 90’s. Found more info after I purchased them. Made to turn more but the baseplate forced causing the king pin to flex and wear out the cup. Thought the color scheme looked great but now that I am going to ride it am going to replace them. I like tight Trackers as I rode Fulls bitd. I tried Khiro bushings and swapped the risers to 9/16” in red but i still get wheel rub. My cups are worn.

First I was going to just replace the cups but I know they will wear out in the end again. Call it a learning lesson. Probably see them on EBay unless anyone is interested here?

Plan B will be Tracker Classic SixTrack (raw) with aluminum baseplate.



Update-

Ordered a set of Sixtrack Classics (raw) & a set of red copers to go with the red Tracker 9/16” risers that I just swapped.

I have a few sets of Six Tracks and a couple of Aggros . They're about the same size but the Cooper's don't fit . 👍

Fingers crossed. I put out a post on a site and got a few replies saying the Tracker copers would fit the Classic reissued Tracker Six Tracks🤞🏻. Hopefully they fit or I will keep them for a future set of vintage Sixtracks🤔

Are your Sixtrack Classic reissues?

The copers will fit.  The Classics are made from the OG molds.

My experience is that the Copers fit the Classic Sixtracks, but maybe not perfectly?  They seem to fit a little too snugly over the hanger (the hanger is slightly wider than the Copers) causing some upward pressure like the Copers want to pop off of the hanger.  So, you end up having the white collars holding down the Copers, which causes the collars to skew to the side.  Maybe the Copers fit the same way on OG Sixtracks?  Anyway, it's not a big deal, but they're not like the old bone white Copers which seemed to sit right down on the hanger and fit better.

70s Skater inspired me. A lot of sidling away mostly at the pressure points (center). Red dust... everywhere 🤦🏻‍♂️😎🍻
