I've actually been working on this one off and on for several months now.  It's finally complete! It's the first "double-axle" roller skate truck I've done (and probably the last!).  This is 22.5" long and represents a TON of custom work.  Just try and figure out what all the pieces are from! I left the truck body the original military green but the rest is pure fabrication and lots of modifying to get the pieces just right.  It started with some vintage Chicago roller skates.  One and a half skates to be exact!  I won't give away what the other parts were.  I'll let you just guess.
