I've been sick all day, so I've been wasting all my time home from school looking at old boards on the bay.  And I ran across this, a "Powell Skates" board.  Did George Powell really make boards before he hooked up with Stacey?  I'd never heard of that before, and yet here's one on ebay...

Is this real or just some crappy bootleg?

I only remember the Quicksilver and Quicktail boards that were pre-Peralta.

 

 

 

 

I don't remember anything like that wood board on eBay.

It's a modern board, NOT from the 70's. I've seen an ad for it. I'll try to find it...

I thought it looked fishy, especially with the new school and old school truck mounting holes. 

 

That Ray Bones add is awesome!

It still looks like it would make a nice cruiser if you could get it cheap...

BDS could make a flat back like that by using a dub con, just add the flat back.

Yeah Stacy was just a grom when George Powell Started Making Sticks. I Believe that the Quicksilver and Quicktail decks were a collaboration with Sims. The board you are referring to on ebay is from the early to mid 90's. That's why it has both hole patterns.I think also after Stacy went on to pursue other interests. I also think the Powell Peralta collaboration lately is only on the reissue stuff. I could be wrong on that. But that deck is not a knock off.

NOT SURE WHY I STARTED TO COLLECT POWELL PERALTA DECKS (If this few counts as a collection)? I GUESS I LIKED THE OG RAY BONES Snub Nose Brite Lite, Mc Twist & Beamer? Note I have no Bird Man decks! That is not a slight ... just too many out there & will buy in 10 centuries

Daddio ... looks OG!  Gotta be rare as hell!  Never saw that version.  Nice score  maybe a pro-type?  Fuck it if I know since not a huge Powell Peralta guy.  I skated their stuff & found that Ray Bones "Snub" Nose truly rips!!  That little bastard was great on small backyard home made ramps!
