    I guess you've seen the movie "Dogtown & the Z-boys? I understand it's now out on DVD. A great history on early skateboarding!

    Oooh, my dad has a Bansai (sp?) thats from that same time period, SkateLab was collecting similar ones for 5k each! Gulp...

    Its really cool, but it needs new bushings and a re-lamination to be in top condition. Plus, my dog ate most of one of the wheels, but it was replaced.

    I have a 75' Alva with the blue letters on the bottom and multicolored 'Alva" cut out ib the grip. I'm still looking for a Z-Flex. I have some other boards from the 80s, but those arent too rare.

    I've been using ebay since '98 with great success. Just be careful, check feedbacks, and you should have good results. I'll be happy to give you my opinion of a seller if you get to that point.

    Thanks for the link! I've been looking for brand new version of my old G&S Billy Ruff (circa 85) and haven't been having much luck.

    Woah, that is amazing.
    How much is one of those supposed to be worth? Production #s in those days were always tiny, how may of these were made?
