It was never about a dual wheelbase. At least not in 1989 or so. The nose of the board was starting to become just as important as the tail with the evolution of the nollie and the advance of nose tricks such as nose slides and stalls. I am eyeballing another custom, one with a 5 to 5.5 inch nose, 15 inch wheelbase, and an overall length of 31.75 to 32 inches.
