I haven’t been in the skate scene since the mid 80s. I am in the midst of building an old school style board with the à Birdhouse 9.75” deck. I purchased Independant 169mm trucks based on that the online skate shop as recommended and the do not fit the predrilled in the deck. They are now saying I need to use 215mm ... I would think it would look ridiculous with truck surpassing the edge of the deck by a lot. In the 80s, I don’t recall the trucks surpassing the edge.
Any help would be appreciate!
