You deserve a medal

Although only a third place medal, it deserves 1st place in the contest for skateboard setup most likely to be owned by M.C. Escher. This is an extreme case of backwards skateboard truck syndrome, or BSTS. It’s not only backwards, but almost like a bad photoshop job. (See: Edit > Transform > Flip Vertical.) On second thought, maybe the front truck is actually facing forward, but the axle is seriously out of alignment. It’s fascinating. The sort of thing I’d buy if I had a job. Then again, if I wasn’t looking at this right now, maybe I’d have a job!

    It looks like a 70’s New Zealand made diecast Trax truck which commonly snapped the pivot nipple if the baseplate didn’t crack in half or the kingpin rip out.
    In those daze of import restrictions most had to settle for them and carry spares in case they were physically able to skate after an inevitable failure.
