Big Pimp deck with black Powell Rib Bones, Red Anodized Stage 5 Indy 169's with shorter than standard kingpins and Bones Medium Bushes, wedged front riser 1/2" flat on the back, Red Skull Wave JuJu Bees and Rons Nuclear Ceramics.

Scored the trucks recently and there's plenty of life left in them. Decided to switch the kingpins as the tops had been ground off the originals. As modern kingpins are shorter bushing choice was limited slightly but Bones feel sweet just standing on it. (Note - trying to get new kingpins in to old Indys with there much more acute angled kingpins is a bitch). Much more clearance now so less likely to hang up.

Test run this weekend if its not to bloody cold and frosty (skating on painted surfaces in this weather is bloody lethal, oh for some California sunshine)

Has anyone else been brave enough to set up and ride a Big Pimp? Lets see those set ups, this is a rare one to see being used, and its a brilliant board to ride, if you haven't had a go.

They only had to replace the coping after Nepps got done with it.

This is it for set ups of this deck?!?!?!? I just scored one. Thin. Flexy. Light. Nice concave. I think I'll have to set it up and skate the snot out of it on Monday!

Sooooo....THREE Big Pimps that got set up? That's it? Seems hard to believe. Set mine up tonight. Just need to get the rails on it, then I'll snap a pic and post it. That'll make FOUR Big Pimps set up. sheesh.

Set it up. Took it for a little spin, at the end of last session. This board is light as hell! Between the deck thickness, the JuJus and the Tracker Ultra Lites, it barely weighs anything!! This might just be a fun deck.....but I need to put a little tape "gasket" between the rails and the deck....the rattles drive me crazy. I haven't really used rails in decades. More reports, and hopefully action pics, in the near future. For now....
