Cheers Mate. I had me own set of Moonrakers made in about 1990, but like a d1ckh3ad tossed them several years back - they were a bit worn out and had a ton of heel sag, but i always regretted throwing them out.

When i was in Australia last week, a long time friend pulled his old moonrakers out and said i could have em. Was beyond stoked - they are in pretty great condition, just years of grime built up. Brought em home, cleaned em up, and swapped out his worn out Aussat/Fan Jets and Nachis for some Aussie Scotts with ceramics. I also added new cushions as the originals were way too soft for me.

Got to say. Since riding in Bonts for the past year+ i got used to the very rigid sole. Was interesting to go back to a less rigid sole on the moonrakers, but the low cut and worn-in-ness made them super comfy, and in ways were better than the Bonts. I'm truly a fan of both for different reasons, so its sweet to have a set of moonrakers again!

Cheers

Considering I rescue old skates from garage sales etc and sell at the local rink a pic of all of my skates is not possible. That and the family has like 5 pairs. So here is a pic of my newest pair I had built. Love these skates.

The final build is as follows: Antik AR-1 Custom Color Lab, Custom 96A 4 Black 4 White Aussie Scott "Wicked Scotts" Wheels, Snyder Advantage Plate, Derby Vixen Custom Designed Toe Guards, Qube Gold Swiss Bearings, DerbyLaces Gold Metallic Laces, Iris Dance Plugs.
