Prefect for chasing down the ice-cream truck, the 38.5" Drop-through deck, "Puddin' Pop" is a low-riding, hot-rod with plenty of room for big wheels. It is a bamboo/fiberglass composite built from 6 layers of bamboo in the body, 4 long + 2 cross-cut. The 27.5 mm deep compartment is made from an additonal 12 layers of veneer including 3 cross-cut in the base for added strength. The deck is dropped 1/2" to get the rider a little closer to the ground while also providing front and back foot-stops.
The regular fiberglass reinforcement for this deck is 6 oz. The heavy-weight reinforcement uses 10 oz. Both levels of reinforcement use 6 oz fiberglass accross the top of the nose and tail.
The compartment lid is made from verticlal-cut bamboo reinforced with FR4 fiberglass sheet. It is fastened in four places using threaded inserts, and the same bolts used for common skate-hardware. Four grooves have been made in the back of the compartment to assist with motor installation along with two wire-passes in the center for battery connections.
The grip is made from recycled glass-grit set in epoxy-resin. Black grip is availabel with fiberglass. The deck includes insets and bolts. !!!No additonal equiptment pictured is included!!!
The deck is available naked for people that would like to do the finish themselves, BUT it was designed as a bamboo/fiberglass composite deck and must be finished with the recommended amount of fiber-glass in order to perform as intended. !!!Decks sold unfinished will not be replaced if broken!!!
