I was just thinking the same thing, I saw and answered about the wheels on a different thread already............. if it's not Tracker related or a hot chick pic....it don't belong here.

Agree ... must be a hot chick picture or tracker.  If anything, wheel would need to be a Wings, DTS K9 or Blackhart.  But Powell Peralta?

Some nice stickers, goofyfootrider63...


OK, I noticed the Tracker ad from a mid 1979 Skateboarder Magazine somewhere in this thread showing some FullTrack copers among other stuff. Now, does someone know when FullTrack copers were released first ? Was that in 1979 or earlier ? Bought a NOS pair of them, but want to make sure they are era correct before setting them up on a SC 5-ply that came out in 1977/78(?)...

Well, I went through some other "Tracker" threads and it looks like they were introduced in 1978...

1978 sounds correct, but then again I am going off memory!

didn't Vans and Tracker collaborate and make make a roller skate that had a Vans shoe(boot) and Tracker magnesium trucks and shoe bottom plates that use the magnesium half track on them?

Hey goofyfoot - I'm pretty sure it was ACS that had that Van's collaboration. I just double checked an ad from the Dec. 1978 Skateboarder to make sure: "ACS Trucks and Van's 'High Top' boot bonded into a skate with something special" is how they put it. They were red, white & blue with the old skool stripe and an ACS graphic on the ankle...to boot. Heh.

The early Vans/ACS Skates were different then the later Skatemate baseplates.They had a fiberglass footprint,with ACS trucks mounted on the fiberglass footprint with nuts/bolts.Standard hangers with ACS Lite style baseplates in the rear and modified baseplates with built in stopper mounts.They were red/white/blue Vans hightops.Super cool.My sisters had blue 65 MM Kryptonics/Sims German bearings on hers which I switched out for 8 Powerflex 5's when she wasn't aware.She's still pissed about it,as she still has the skates.

is there any meaning to the numbers stamped inside the bushing area of the hangers on early small pivot Trackers?

I will receive these in a few days. Seller's from Germany as well and got them some time ago with a lot of other vintage stuff.
Trucks are NOS Tracker Midtracks with grey Tracker riser pads, one truck still in wrapping. No idea what or who is/was King Surfer. The labeling is in English, French and Dutch, while the latter mean "replacement part". Why that, I have no clue. Interesting though...
