That 8.5 Toft was my my first real board with pure juice wheels and bennet pros. It was used but it was mine!

You can say that again. Got a lot of my stuff off VILMS (Thanks!),I've got rid of two NOS sets of green Snakes. The 10 inch Toft /Lazers/Snakes was my choice board in '79.

Nice collection cress.  Those are beautiful.

 

I let this one slip through my fingers.  My brother found it at a garage sale for $10.00.  It was mounted on a Sims snowboard.  He sold the snowboard as a complete with this deck.  I couldn't fire up the kind of ching he got for it.  Too bad.  A really cool deck in minty condition (except for the mounting holes for the snowboard).

I must say that after DT boards, Sims are my next favorite...

@ cress

you might need to send those Sims completes to me...My Sims saw them and swore that they were relatives that they would love to spend time with...

Pimp.That's a real compliment.But I must admit my boards are a little wary of travelling.Maybe you could send over the flying wedge(I was thinking of bidding on that one!) and your Bowman to escort them back to the states?

I'll make them feel at home.

wow..those boards are just lovely!  I used to ride a Sims 10.0 Toft with indy's and snakes back in 77/78 (9th grade). my little brother had the same board with gullwings and green krypto's.  great boards.  an old friend of mine back in illinois, who i used to skate with, still had his Toft blunt nose 10.0 and a nos 33" x 8" that I gave him back in 97 before i transferred back ot Cali.  I should contact him.........

Back when Jim & I started making skateboard's & before we called them Dogtown Skates Jim & I think Biniak rode for Sims for wile. Jim had a few long board's 36" 42" x7 or 7.5 x1/2" ash that I took & cut off the tail to make it 31" & glued the cut off back onto the tail ground it on to a kick tail. it was a Nice pool board!

Wes, I remember in LODT the Biniak character was wearing a Sims shirt at the Freeformer contest.  I thought he rode for Logan Earth Ski before you made the Bullet deck.  Which brings me to my next thought, is DTS planning to re-issue the Biniak Bullet deck?
