Neat you got a real valterra! Where'd you get that? Edit: you might not have gotten the valterra yet but the trucks are popularly known as invader 800s
The screen-used boards had Tracker Ex Track trucks, not Invaders. Madrid incorrectly used Invaders on their official replicas—at least in 2015—believing at the time they were correct. That Tracker trucks were correct was only discovered after the fact, and those wanting screen-accurate boards bought Tracker trucks and have swapped them in.

I'm guessing they used the 153mm ones if I got that right

Good news about manufacturing company re-doing some of the '70s accessory lines (y)...Ah, if they could re-do the "Power-Pivot"!!

I have the 2015 and 2019 decks but they live w/ my props. As someone who has skated for almost 20 years now, I’d looove to make a replica that I can actually skate.

At least the deck. I couldn’t care less about the wheels or trucks, lol.

Sorry, but just to clarify EX tracks which are intenderìd for boards up to 8,25?? Aren't they far too short?
Are You shure dey didn't use the sixtracks which are intended for boards up to 9.5, as the older ones were?

Would You be so kind to clarify this, since I probably have found a supplier?

Regards,

Alberto

All of this is detailed earlier in the thread. Look back at posts starting from around post 592.

From earlier as to the modern re-issues of the FLY wheels, and the effect it will have on which type of Tracker trucks must be used to achieve the correct wheelbase:

  • The 2010 re-issue wheels were used on the 2010 25th Anniversary replica boards, and leftover stock was also used on initial wave of the 2015 30th anniversary boards. They have similar internal construction as vintage. They also have a similar offset as vintage, meaning their use with Extrack trucks will result in the film-correct wheelbase of about 4.625" (4 5/8") between the wheels.
  • 2015 Re-issues (also sold separately on Madrid's website in 2016 while stock remained): The 2015 wheel re-issues were installed on the second wave of 2015 30th anniversary replica boards. Lighter in color, harder, plastic core. Higher offset, which results in them tucking further in towards the center of the board. To restore the film-correct wheelbase of 4.625" (4 5/8") between the wheels, the slightly wider SixTracks trucks by Tracker must be used.

I figured this would be a good place to post this. I don't think many people have seen the retail version of this board from the early 80s, at least not in this condition. It's not movie-accurate, but it's what they sold you if you wanted the board after you saw the movie. Hopefully you will all get a kick out of it.

Jesus I can't imagine what that's worth now. I've never seen one still in shrinkwrap.

I've managed to get an old and battered deck, but this is amazing!
