Graphic: Dragon & Bats (Blue Dip). NOS Blue G-Bones Wheels. Original 1980s Release NOT a REISSUE. 1987 Powell Peralta – Blue Dip / Street Shaped Dragon & Bats Deck. Powell Peralta Factory Trucks. 1978 Orange Powell Bones Wheels. Powell Peralta Factory Griptape. Bill Ayer Orange Risers. Up for sale is one of the most iconic and Powell Peralra skateboards of all time. Here is a original 1988 7-Ply Steve Caballero dragon and bats in a beautiful blue dip. This is a genuine vintage Powell Peralta and not a reissue. This skateboard has been set up and displayed but has never been used, not even once! Although its not in perfect condition its in new/never ridden condition. This one was a factory complete from day one. This is a first run of the 7-Ply dragon & bats model after the bonite failure. This one has a minor imperfection with the paint on graphics and can be described as mtacky. Although a minor imperfection, it does not take away anything when this one is hanging up on display! This one is a small piece of history actually and has an interesting story behind it. Although this is not a blem and does not have a 2 under truck it has a minor issue with the paint. After Powells stopped manufacturing the XT bonite decks they had a minor paint issue that did not settle like normal. The first run of seven ply decks made after the bonite decks all had the same issue. In so many words, it is comparable to missing a final layer of coating to seal some of the paint Colors used for the main graphic. You can zoom in on the graphics and see what Im talking about. It is not a big deal whatsoever and it will forever display exactly as it appears. If you are a big Powell Collector im sure you already know about this but I thought I would mention anyways. Certain colors of paint can smudge if wiped hard with a wet towel. This deck displays beautifully especially with my custom set up with the orange risers and extremely rare orange wheels. The same paint issue has been noted on the dragon & bats model, Tommy Guerreros Dagger model, Lance mountains family model and one other that I cant remember. Anyways Powell made all of these factory Completes. Included on the board is there a set of near mint orange 1978 Powell Bones 65mm wheels. This is one of the first dual purpose Bones wheels. Tony hawk used this style wheel throughout various points in the 80s. It was actually this style wheel Tony hawk modeled the T-Bones model after! Insanely rare and absolutely beautiful condition. The text on 3 of the 4wheels is near perfect. Only a few scuffs on 1 wheel. Hardly any dirt and completely clean. The deck contains a pair of Powell Peralta factory trucks. These were put on factory complete skateboards. I hate to get rid of the skateboard because I know Im never going to get another Red Ripper in such condition again. As you probably know, in the last few years all pig shaped Powell Peralta decks have a come extremely scarce and hard to find. No matter what age, these Vintage Powell Peralta model skateboards with the iconic graphics will always be sought after. Not only do these images define a period in time, but these graphics are responsible for creating the support of skateboarding as we know it And Ill say that as a fact!! These iconic graphics of the Ripper, Skull & Sword, skull and snake and other models have continuously increased in value and demand while they become more scarce and hard to find every year!
