Is that the G&S deck?

Doesn't sound like your restoration should be to diffcult, the hard bit is getting the right bushes and pivot bushes for the trucks, try e-bay. Bearings are easy.

I can't see what trucks they are but the skate shop in Poole has/had parts for old trucks. I bought ACS bushings, pivot cups and kingpins from there but was a few years ago.

Can still buy Bennett trucks.
Try Conflict skates.
I`ve not noticed Woody selling them, or John in St. Helens.

After seeing that first photo Simon Templer rang and asked for his bin back.
Is this where I am supposed to write something witty?
