What causes that gash? Smiths on angle iron?

Kgrinds.....unless he rode his trucks backwards like a street league trophy


I guess now is as good as any time to learn I'm dyslexic.

Don't give up! You can replace the Kingpin for Chrissakes... We want to see the end of this journey...
I'm not giving up. I took my truck to my local shop, to see what my friend there could do, and he sent it back to the distributor's as he had no hollow kingpins. Hopefully I'll get it back with a new hollow kingpin. Fingers crossed.
I remember reading an old AVE interview where he said when he's setting up "new" trucks he likes to keep as much of his old parts from his previous set of trucks as possible, right down to the pivot cup. Ever since reading that interview I've adopted the same habit with new trucks as well. So if anything, just be like AVE; get some new trucks and just move your old hangers over, and then when those are done just switch em out with the new unused hangers.

Damn. This seems like such a great idea. :o I gotta start doing this.

I don't like having to set up new trucks but find Stage 11 Indys pretty easy to get used to, and easier to break in than new shoes or even a new board.

Jason Adams does this also. Makes complete sense. But you'll likely end up with a stack of baseplates...

No harm in that really. You can sell them as scrap metal after decades of trucks.  ;D

Looks like the truck was ridden without a wheel until it ground itself down on the ground. Possibly run over by a car??

cracked my back hanger last night (it is ground down to the axle) going to get a new truck today, not looking forward to breaking it in and I can't really use any of the old pieces as they are pretty much destroyed

When they take power tools to trucks in videos are they actually doing something or just fucking around? It looks like they're doing something to the kingpin...I think JT has a video doing it and raven in PS also does it

If you replace a kingpin or whole base plate, etc. the new kingpin and nut are going to stick up past the ground down hanger.

I do this with new trucks too, it makes feebles and smith grinds easier.
