Our friend Chris who makes the Downhill Spiral Longboards found this little beauty in Cali at a yard sale and took it home for a dollar. I did some searching around the interweb about it to find that some were sold in Sears in the 60's which were 12 ply, clay wheels, and open loose ball bearings. The "axle" is actually a bolt through one side with the nut on the other. The graphic was still visible when held at the right angle to the light. This one is a 7 ply though which might be older? Either way it's a pretty cool find.
