Repurposed Roller Skate Heavy Hauler Truck


Hey folks! Here's my latest repurposed vintage roller skate truck. It's the first one I've done with a double axle in the back. It's all got a mix of skates, brass, silverplate and other mixed small parts that I soldered together.
The cab is from a vintage Structo toy truck. The bumpers are faucet handles. The fenders are brass napkin rings. The piece in the back is a vintage take-apart baking tin with soldered metal sticks along the side. The rest is a mix of different small parts to give it more character. I hope you like it!

    Very cool ! I have 2or 3 pair of the old metal skates that you need a key to adjust them to your size and shoe...they'd really look sweet on that body !

      @GabbyinPa. For sure! I've got some too that I'm saving for the next round of roller skate trucks.

    Well trick my truck! That's one of the coolest recycles I've seen! Thanks and well done!
