Figured I would give this thread a little bump due to my recent craigslist acquisition of a G&S Proline 500 reissue complete.  Scored it and an OG Vision Shredder complete for $240. 



Here is how this wall hanger looked when I bought it.





Now, I bought this board with the intention of riding it so the pink lapper went bye bye.  The very lightly used stage V Indys got some new Bones bushings installed.  I replaced the green 65mm reissue Star Tracs with some 60mm white 97a very lightly used Star Tracs I found on the bay for cheap.  I was pleasantly surprised to find brand new Bones Swiss bearings in the wheels so those got to stay.  I left the NOS blue Nosebone Wide on it along with the rails.

And now it's officially a rider!





It's fast and fun as hell to ride.  To me the Star Tracs feel harder than the listed 97a and have plenty of grip.  They are super fast old school wheels that I would highly recommend for any old school pool/transition set up. The deck itself has a bit of flex to it probably due to it being completely flat with a mellow kick in the tail and it's 17" wb.  This gives it a fun "surfy" kind of feel.  I am finding myself riding it more than any of my other boards right now.

This is what it looks like now.

Cool CD. The fact that you're riding at all puts you in a minority, not many of us are. Nice looking board.

Nice to see the G&S Proline in action! My first decent setup (131's, Sims Snakes, home made rails and tail saver) after a series of homemade experimental decks.
Nicely manufactured deck with the factory cut grip.
Looking good!

Damn that looks nice 300.  I tried contacting Hess a few years ago and never heard back from him.  [frown]
