Right after they first came out I remember hearing Thunders were just Indys with different baseplates, but I never had any confirmation.
NEVER BEFORE SEEN: T H I N D Y ‘ S. Prototype THUNDER base-plates tested with INDY hangers.
WHY? I can’t remember. For some reason it was important.
Something to do with checking the geometry.
ANYWAY – – – this is a one-of-a-kind set of trucks, prior to the release of THUNDERS onto the world.
I always loved the baseplates on the old Thunders, with lizards, lightning bolts and skulls and no text to be seen anywhere. If you didn’t already know what they were, there was no way to tell what company made them. UPDATE: Added another Mofo shot of some OG Thunder baseplates in reference to Terry Nails.
– Thanks to MoFo for the photo
