Bingo. I discovered this when putting these ones together. I wear a size 11 boot. My Royals (that I still need to get mounted) are a 6.75" wheelbase and will be a short forward. The plates on this Aussie style build are about 7.25". Short compared to a standard plate size, but pretty long compared to a short forward sized plate.

I'm thinking about these with flips. The yellow should go great with the boots....

IMO get with one of the builders here and get Ranali flips over the SG ones. I own both and like the Ranali flips over the SG ones.

The problem with Magnums for this kind of mounting is the toes stop boss sticks out way too far to get them mounted far enough forward. I've got a pair on my derby skates, and they're about as far forward as they'll go and are still a good 15mm further back than my proper 'Aussie' skates.

I actually ran out of width on the front of my boot - my Magnums are the one toe-stopped plate I haven't been able to mount flush with the toe of the boot.

Well, shoot. That rules those out. I've thought about Roll Line Giottos, Atlas Circle masters, Invaders w/ the toe stops cut off and a million others. Anyone got any ideas?

Well, they might fit. I don't have super-big feets. Cyclone?

I thought of Cyclones too Beck but the jump bar doesn't really go with the whole concept. Something plain like an Invader without the stops...

I don't know, there's a LOT of old Aussie skates kicking around with jump bars on them!

Here is a Laxer-X Tech size 7 or 175mm plate. Not sure how this compares to other plates around.

Default I may sound silly but.....

I'm only new at this myself but the aussie's out there may or may not agree but what about a Flyer 5 plate? I picked a set of skates up off ebay but the plate is NTS and as I'm still learning i'm not so keen on it right now.

Default Naaahhh...

I wouldn't try scouring the other side of the planet for a set of Flyer 5's.
I thought they were reasonable as a kid, but you could do a lot better.
They are let down by the rubber pivot cups an lack heel support if forward mounted on thin/soft soled boots.
Sure Grip parts fit them though (mine have SG Cyclone truck/rubber/kingpin replacements) and with Delrin pivot cups and DA45 trucks, they would be quite reasonable.
I still skate them on the odd occasion.

Default Of course ya can.

They were anodized red, but the finish was a bit rough on a few of them, so.... into a bucket of caustic soda they went.
After about a minute the anodize was all gone, replaced by a very dark grey oxidize, which when wiped off left a nice (i think) Ti look finish.

As for the original thread question.
Any NTS speed plate, preferably with flips and of Italian origin would go a long way toward an "Aussiefied" setup.
As these things can be a little hard to find at cheapish prices I would recomend the Boen copy Lazer X Tech.
Mine performs very well.

Well, we're good. I was able to pick up a set of Ital's w/ flips from a fellow logger for the new boots. Already got some Awesome Scott's for them too. This is gonna be a very hot skate
