I skated these XK-4 plates in Lincoln "76" with yellow Metaflex Dragsters, fafnir 8balls, and Hyde kangaroo boots. just trying to jet them back, as close as possible, to how I skated them. True, not a great combo by today's standards but I liked it in the day and a short wheel can make up for a lot of rusty form. I've got new primary sk8s, Cararra boots, XK-4 singles, Hyper Cannibals, Bones Swiss. These are really going to be sk8ed when I get together with old friends that I skated with back "then".
