Gotta love the midwest. It’s in the middle, you know? I’m not even sure what this is supposed to be, perhaps a practice mega ramp? Or maybe it’s the next big thing in ramp transition technology that will deliver the goods where the elliptical transition fad failed. For a starting bid of a mere $799.99, you can probably own this awesome creation. Don’t believe how awesome it is? Check out the pics and auction description after the jump.
These are fully-constructed skateboard ramps! You can begin skating as soon as you get it home! Imangine the fun you can have – and the envy of your neighbors!
The BIG ramp measures 6 FOOT 6 INCHES high and 10 FEET at the top of the rail! Imagine the speed you can achieve and the tricks and stunts you can perfect! The entire setup measures nearly 30 FEET END-TO-END! The width is 8 FEET for plenty of room to show off! The landing ramp is 3 FEET high for easy on and off! This isn’t your average half pipe! You’ve gotta have it!
Save yourself a big bunch of time and effort and buy this complete. I know a fuy who built his own. It took him over a month to complete it in his spare time. The price of wood today is another factor that makes this unit scream “BUY ME!”
My son uses it from time-to-time, but not enough to keep it in our driveway. The wood on this unit is weathered but very sturdy. There is a board at the bottom of the “pipe” that probably should be replaced with a fresh 4 X 8 piece of plywood, but it seems to work as is. Also, the landing ramp could use a cross 2 X 4 for a little side-to-side stability. Again, it works as is, but if we were going to keep it I would do those 2 things.
I hauled this home on a 20 or 24 foot flat bed “car” trailer with ease. We had a skid loader on the trailer to make loading and unloading much easier. I recommend you bring one with you. If you want me to rent one, let me know ahead of time, so we can agree on the cost. You can load this in 3 sections and stack some pieces with proper tie downs. We are located about 25 miles North West of Rockford, IL, About 55 minutes South of Madison, WI, and about 2 hours North East of Davenport, IA.
Well, I can’t imagine why this guy’s son doesn’t use the ramp very often. I’m not sure it screams “Buy me!” but it does scream something, that’s for sure. “This isn’t your average half pipe!” that’s for sure. It’s not even your average below average half pipe. I’m not even sure it qualifies as a half pipe at all. If you wan to be the envy of your neighbors, check out the auction while it lasts.
