Mark Gonzales

Thanks WSB for this donation. I've given some jewels to close friends in the past so this proves that what comes around goes around. My best guess is that this board was assembled in 1988. It is a Vision Mark Gonzales complete with a mixed set of Santa Cruz Bullet wheels (60mm 97a), 1/2 inch risers, Tracker Ultra Light trucks that have the one of a kind Tracker copers still intact. Score!

65mm wheels with a center set bearing available in a variety of durometers! These jewels are available in 8 different duros from 75A / 78A / 81A / 88A / 92A / 94A / 96A / to 98A.

Comparison and Contrast

Here we have the Powell Peralta Stacy Peralta "Hipster" deck and a Moose blank deck with a very similar shape. The "Hipster" is 8.5 inches wide by 32.875 inches in length. The Moose blank is 9 inches wide by 32.75 inches long. Both boards appear to sport at least a 15 inch wheel base. The Peralta has an attractive stencil style graphic while the Moose is natural. What draws favorable attention to the Moose deck are the wheel wells which allow for loose trucks and larger wheels. The Peralta is priced at about $55 USD while the Moose is available for about $15 USD.
