| Hey< I purchased a pair of ACS roller skates with the vans canvas boot back in the early 1980's. I mofified them by putting a set of ACS Lite 580 trucks on them with Sims Comp II wheels and bearings. The skates originally came with the ACS 430 trucks, so the swap was made without modification other than just switching the trucks. I have since, just recently, lost those skates and am in the process of putting together another pair if I can obtain some trucks like those. I have two 580 hangers, but I need two more. If you could help, I would appreciate it.:
: Hi Tim,
: very interesting post and pic!
: : Suregrip roller skate plates with indi 101's w/a jump bar
: : foating in between the cushons and plastic slider plates
: : bolted to the jump bar.
: What model are the Sure-Grip plates?
: (Can you find em here or here here?)
: Are those the trucks?
: Did you have to modify the pivots of the independent hangers to make them fit?
