Recently put this one together NOS.  Bahne longboard set-up with Hijacker trucks, ACS base plates, Rad Pad risers and Power Paw wheels.  I cut the grip from a strip of rubberized tape similar to 70's stock.  Really makes me want to carve a hill barefoot and shirtless at sunset.

Nice ones Stayfly.  That third deck looks familiar.  After picking my deck up from a member here a while back I looked around for pictures of others a little bit of everywhere (including Bahne catalogues) and didn't find another.  Do you know anything more?

I've seen pics in Bahne ads in Skateboarder Magazine, but that's it.  These wood decks were their last hurrah.

My first 'real' board was a Bahne, the flat fiberglass one. 
Green, with the two-tone logo (blue/white)
24" or 27"?  Can't remember...

With those pressed metal trucks (Chicago or Bahne brand?, ummmm...)
and I want to say Road Rider wheels...but on second thought, pretty sure it was the Cadillacs, w/open bearings.

Yeah, I remember it like it was yesterday!

But it was a BAHNE!!  That much I remember.

Saved my pennies and got that, then a week later, everybody had kicktail boards all the sudden...

Hey, it was still a couple of steps up from the molded plastic banana board I'd been riding.  Real grip tape and everything!!


I'll probably always have a soft spot for these babies, huh?

That was the same experience for a lot of us old schoolers.  The Bahne was your first "hot" skateboard that showed you what was possible with the new urethane wheels & then a kicktail board which opened up all the obstacles, ditches & pools that could now be tackled by kickturning & not just carving.

Likewise, when I first started skating circa '73-'74 a Bahne with Chicagos and loose ball Cadillacs was the sh#t. It wasn't long before sealed bearings and Road Riders arrived on the scene. So now I collect what was unobtainium in 6th grade. Here's a Bahne 30" downhill model. This one has 1st gen 3  hole Bennnets and Cad DK-51 wheels, originally green but now root beer colored:
