Okay, this is my old woody of choice.  I have an NOS kicktail, and NOS rocker, an NOS 2000 longboard, and a restored kicktail, and rocker.  Looking for other Maherajah's.  Especially an early longboard.

And by the way Maherajah does rule, it says so on the bottom of my 2000.

hey,
Yeah...I remember Maharajahs at Gemco.
I wanted one so bad.
What'd I get?
A blue plastic Grentec Coyote.

Probably one of the only things that sucked when we were kids, Grentec's. I had a yellow and orange one.

Here's my Maherajah on the left.  Now it's set up with Lazers & OG Tunnel Rocks.  Great woodwork & glossy finish!

Okay hit http://photos.yahoo.com/dsg300hp

The first 2 are NOS.  One Rocker, one Kicktail.  Never drilled, or gripped.  The other kicktail was my buddy Tom Fonseca's.  He bought it in '75.  Sold it to my buddy Scott who rode it for a while then stuffed it away.  I got it a couple of years back and had my dad restore it, and added NOS Bennetts, and NOS OJ's.  So its real cool, cuz I actually rode it when we traded around.

The other rocker I got off e-Bay, had my dad restore it, and added almost NOS Trackers, and NOS Snakes.  The big board was released in 2000.  It has that pre done sand grip on top, but never has been drilled.  I hear that Bob Maher made only about 100.  And as it says, "Maherajah Rules"!

Like Wes, Bob is a great artist, in a different way!

that does not include the 4 Maha water skiis, which I could not photo because thay are in my father's boat.

Enjoy the pics.  If anyone has another deck that I don't, please let me know.
