Hi everybody!
I have many boards of the 70', but first of all, I have a passion for 70' slalom decks.
here's mine!

Very nice! What kind of trucks are on the black deck (Hobie flex?) between the Turner and the Santa Cruz?

Gordon Smith deck (my guess) but I would like to know too. Nice Blizzard; wish to part with it? Also, are those Lip Balm wheels on the 90Kg!?

I'd bet the wheels on the Quicksilver are Bones.

Take a good look at the inside of the back wheels and you see the red bones text!

wassup biotches?...

1st gen Bones all turned milky yellow...even the NOS ones...those are Bones...
And yes, Silverspace...do they still make those?...i had one once, but couldnt get it to turn..i dont see how they'd work on a flexy deck like an FF...good for display i s'pose...

Hooops!
so sorry, i forgot my user name and couldn't answer!
so, here they are:
QUICKSILVER 90kgs ACS 651 and...BONES, of course!
TURNER TRACKER blue KRYPTO. I tried to respect the set up of Bobby PIERCY back in the past, as he told in SKATEBOARD MAGAZINE in 1978 ...
G.S reissue, SILVERSPACE Professional and TURNER LA COSTA wheels (and yes, silverspace trucks turn very well, just don't put pads on them). it was my quiver when I started slalom races in 2004...
N.O.S BLIZZARD with very rare KJELL 182 and ROAD RIDER 6
NOS SANTA CRUZ with GULLWING and ROAD RIDER HENRY HESTER.

Slalom decks are so beautiful....and TURNER's are ripping!

Grrr!!!!
I forgot one board, the most unknown for many of you, the SKATE DOG pro slalom.
it's a French deck, made by REFLEX, a well known French shaper for water-skis.
It's set-up with LACADUR trucks (another French brand), OJ wheels on back, YOYO's on front.
Really a beautiful deck, a litle bit made as a SIMS TAPERKICK.
