Skateboard Patents

Woke up with the intention to figure out some ideas on frames on the current motorcycle build and imagine what happened, a google search lead me somewhere else entirely. My plan was to look at old pistols for engraving along with the barrel construction to get some ideas for a metal texture and or coloration. Somehow I stumbled across patents for old skateboard construction. It truly makes me smile a wide grin to think of how far skateboarding has come and of my wish that I was 18 forever. To be able to wake up with no major plans but to skate and realize that the biggest goal of the day is to do that one trick that makes you feel utterly alive. This goes out to you backside lipslide, you still haunt me.
