They don't make 'em like they used to


This is one of my favorite things. It's a 1988 Powell Peralta Tony Hawk. This is the real thing, not a re-issue. This hawk is a lot like the first hawk I bought back in the summer of '87. My first Hawk was navy blue and had the gold dragon on the top. This hawk is more purple and has the winged ripper on the top. Note: Will trade for a navy blue hawk with dragon on top. lol! I bought this on ebay about 3 or 4 years ago. It reminds me of the good ol days.

Wow! Its beautiful! I just found a 2004 tony hawk board shaped just like that one in the pic...its a 2004 Powel Operalta eddition...probably not worth anything, got it for a buck at a yard-sale, but it works great with my dirt board wheels! =P

Cool, mr. omniscient. I didn't know Powell Peralta made a hawk in 2004. Yard Sales rule!
