    Didn't Banzi produce aluminium boards back on the late 70's?

    It was THE board to have in 76-77 before the park and bowl riding craze took off.

    Haha..We've already got one and it isn't for sale. Came with California Slalom wides and Cali Smoker wheels. Got it for fourty bucks including shipping. It arrived in this condition then I cleaned it up, gripped it, and added new hardware.




    Rode it last week. You might find someone willing to pay 5 bills to relive their childhood, but it won't be me.

    Green kryptos aren't exactly period correct for these boards. They go better on a FibreFlex
    Got some repros and replica decks like that

    i bought my first 27 inch blue anodized banzai in 1980 for 80 dollars even plus tax, had it for 15 years til it departed. One of my friends took it off of a 7 foot post office loading deck without even phasing him. He landed squarely as was on his way for another drop off. And you all thought you were good!
    I didnt make any photos of it though. It had tracker trucks and power paw wheels.
    both of which ive replaced. Now i just need to find a new banzai deck and my childhood is back again. Actually i have a 24 inch gold banzai deck. ill post a photo after i hook up my new gear.

    I'm not sure if I ever even saw a 27" Banzai aluminum. All my friends had the 24". From there most moved to the Alva 77, G&S Bowlrider, or something similar to those.

    I just snagged a replacement 28 inch banzai aluminum deck. Itll be in shipment in a few days. I now have a 23 inch banzai and 28 inch banzai decks, both gold. Ill be putting them together with some new old stock hardware, trucks and wheels etc. My old blue banzai 28 inch board was lost down a boat ramp 15 years ago due to an inconsiderate person who was putting his boat in the water at the same time my skateboard went beneath the boat and trailer. I was never able to recover it at the time and gave up.I didnt feel it was worth 150 dollars for diver recovery at that time. Plus the deck itself was really beat to hell. 15 years plus of tricks and hard riding, once it was run over by a car on the highway at 55 mph. It didnt even put much of more than a flex in it. Id have thought itd be broken in two but it was like nothing ever happened.stay tuned for more fun!
