A bit part of ventureís history is RoccoÖ.he was the TM in the 80ís and lead it to being marketed as a street truck/gonz getting on.  They were a less bulky truck than an Indy or a gullwing.  90ís they were a super popular truck being the first to drill the holes back and first to make a lower truck, it lined up with small wheels and the boards taperingÖ.

Anyone know where to get stock bushings? Not the loose trucks conversion kit. Mine finally blew out after half a year.

"Deluxe supercush" kits are what fits Venture. Indy aftermarkets also work with no issue that's what I'm using currently.

Looks like these guys only have the extra soft ones but those are what you want to look for.

what if the hangar size is different? like would the axle of a 5.8 fit the baseplate of a 5.25?

For anyone who was curious to see some old / vintage Venture trucks, I was going to post pics of the near destroyed old Venture trucks I have here, but then I found someone selling what looks like a near new set on Gumtree (Australian selling platform) and have included the link and some pics below.

Click on the pics for the bigger versions, or save them while you can, just to have pics of the older trucks.  As these had the six hole plates they are from around 1992-1998 going by what I know of those trucks.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

In my experience they will make you work for your pop.  Which isn't necessarily bad...

I suppose this isn't specific to Venture but.

It the end of your axle and nut don't sit flush like here

How to you prevent your axle end getting blunted?

I won't be able to change these wheels soon

Pad the axle (outside side) with some extra washers

Always two washers in, one washer out, nut flush. I've been doing this since I really started to get in to skateboarding and gear, 15-20 years ago. It's the correct way to do it.


And superglue your exposed seams on your shoes.

And fuck a nike.

Skated 6.1s on a Loveseat for a few months and loved it.. they turned great with stock bushing/flat washer but Iíve been itching to learn some new ledge tricks as itís the most neglected part of my skating. Picked up some second hand 5.8s and they feel like they just do not turn at all. Is the geometry different?

Probably wrong thread but man Iíve ruined any chance of technical skating by sticking to wider boards and transitions, whatís the likelihood of it somehow clicking someday? Haha

I think the geometry is a little different. Iím basing that thought off of people reporting the effective wheelbase to be different from the 5.8s (if I remember correctly the 6.1s had a shorter effective wb, and that coupled with the sub 14Ē loveseat, I could see some turning happening). 
I always come back to ventures. That being said, I donít really fuck with wide shit. Narrower trucks turn faster.

Pad the axle (outside side) with some extra washers

I always use thicker nuts and loctite to all nuts(KP/axel/deck) on the skateboard, loctite is essential to the thicker nuts, cuz the thread won't reach to the nylon lock.

no more rethreading problem or lost a nut in the middle of the session(still bringing normal nut as a spare)

and does anyone has top bushing chewed up issue?
i skate 5.2low nut flush and weight 65kg, had to swap stock washer with bones flat ones, it works fine, and more turny.

Lots of people have that it's the reason many run the Bones washer and is one of the things that frustrates me about them the most.

My bushings got chewed out and had to swap them out to a fresh set of the white ones (urgh), but I'd been riding this same bushings over 3-4 different pairs of Ventures. I'd say Venture bushings start out the hardest but keep it together longest, far outlasting the Thunder stock ones.
