Thanks Dave I love going out and pulling this stuff off the web where I can find it. I really want to get Dick involved with posting more pictures also.
He is the one with the real serious collection. Mine is very limited.

This is the 4 mixed relay Champions from the Ohio State Championships 1969.
In 1969 there were so many skaters and so many teams that skaters had to win at states to make it to Regionals. Last summer I went to the Great Lakes Regional meet. There was not even one division that has heats. Every race was a final. That is pretty sad.
Richard do you recognize these skaters?

Sorry Tracy:

I dont recognize any of the 4 skaters in this photo. That would be a Tony question. You might email it to him at home and ask him to put a name to the 4 faces. Just a suggestion.

Richard I am positive about that. I found this picture on the UASRS site. The caption states 1969 Ohio State Champions. Photo donated to Museum by Tony Kissing.

I have to scan in a pic that goes with the girl's skate and am planning a seperate thread about these but I thought I would go ahead and put this shot up here. These belong to my parents, they met at the roller rink in Bicknell, IN in 1951. The girls skates are Chicago brand with Hyde boot and were purchased in the summer of 51, mom believes the wheels are original.

The man's skate belong to my dad, they are marked Roller Derby Official. Dad is unsure of the exact year of purchase but knows it was before he joined the Navy in 1945.


I have been working to restore and preseve these skates, the last time they were used was in the early to mid 1970s.

Tracy, I was not questioning the authenticity of the picture that is straight forward, I simply suggested asking Tony if he could help identify the skaters as I could not and he is the OHIO guy that knows everyone back that away!

He also probably still has the Ohio State Championship program from that year in his collection!

Greenetuckian:

Nice vintage pics of older skates you have there.

Some tips on restoration. You could use "Neverdull" metal polishing wads to remove some of tthe grime and rust spots on the steel base plates.
The product is freely available at your neighborhood hardware store.

The wheels could easily be touched up on a rink wheel grinder. The Looseball cones and bearings and d washer and nuts as well as axles could all be replaced with new parts, if needed. The wheel LB Cups can also be hand polished.

For the leather, I like Lexol, both the conditioner and cleaning products, to put some new life back into the dried out material, in and outside the boot. If the tongues are dryrotted, any bootmaker can replace that for you. Lexol is also available at area Tack shops anywhere fine leather goods are sold.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Tracy for posting those 2 pics from our National Outdoor meets held at Staten Island, NY. Sure brings back some fond memories. I had written several articles on those meets for Skate Magazine each year....

splitwoods, I sincerely appreciate your advice. The thread has been moved to the restoration thread. I realize that I posted in the wrong thread, oops

That being said my one an only goal is to preserve a little piece of my heritage. I never intend to let anyone but the original owners put these skates on their feet and since the original owners are elderly (mom just turned 74 and walks with a cane and dad will be 80 in june and needs a walker) and the floors have changed I doubt they will log many laps.

They were wearing these very skates when they took me to the rink in or about 1973. I am here on this forum perhaps only because of these very old and delapadated skates from brands that any of us would consider cheap junk today.

This thread really touches my heart. It is from a bygone era that is really a leagcy for us all. Let us not forget those who wore the blisters and bruises before.

Ditto Greentuckian,

My first skates were found in our garage as a kid. My dad's that were many sizes too big. I just made sure I laced them really tight. They did not have urethane wheels. I think they were some kind of wood. I skated on these until my feet stopped growing and was bought new skates. I could do tight little cross-overs on them on our small backyard patio and fly downhill in a hallway at the school across the street. I wish I still had them now for rememberance sake. They are more precious to me for their wonderful memories than any expensive skate I could buy today.

Default Chicago, the common man's skate

Hi Guys and Gals, TN-XLracer, RI-RGYoung

Again XL thanks for the great photos
and I do hope Brikkee's dad helps out a bit with some of his collection
or connections to vintage photos.

As I read recent posts to this tread series I was surprised at how many younger than me and you skaters, have embraced skating due to their parents love of skating, showed Chicago phenolic wheels with the one maybe showing a wood wheel. I know we discussed this before yet it was kind of interesting to look closely at the wheels.

Maybe you, with Splitwoods help could find a Chicago advertisement or a news clip.

Yours in Skating, MA/NY Dave

I love those strap on inlines, I had no idea they ever made any but quads.

Dave I will search around for some more old ads to post. In the mean time check out this vintage pair of skates. This pair was up for bid on ebay about six months ago and I let them get away from me. Notice that these skates have never been used. The wood wheels show no signs of wear and the boot still shines. It is a beautiful example of the type of speed skates that were sold in the 60's. Maybe the 50's I'm not sure. Richard and Dick can help out there. Its a Hyde boot and a Chicago Jet Plate. Richard will probably know what wheels are on this skate.
I sure wish I would have won the bid on these. They are beautiful.
