to some of the sellers out there, I flat fucking refuse to pay the stupid prices some of these sellers are asking. $10 for a single Sims gold bearing, $350 for a beat up fiberglass Santa Cruz, $175 for Indy trucks missing pivot cups, $600 for a reissue Dogtown, $1100 for a Kendall Snake...shit's gotten out of hand.

I'll kick back, let my saving account build up and spend it on fair market value product.Tweakbox https://www.happywheels.vip/ https://vlc.onl/

As long as there are people in the marketplace that will pay those prices they will sell at those prices. Thats the base of capitalism. But I understand how annoying it can be. I'm also annoyed by the flip of that when you have a rare valuable deck and people deluge you with low-ball offers.

The Indy trucks without the cups is totally acceptable. Id buy them at that price if I needed them. Khiro makes replacement cups for most trucks. If they don't have one for your specific model or brand, make your own with a glue gun (I've done that for years with my Bennett truks when replacements were not available).
