I believe that is an XL. My younger brother had a set back in the 70's.

very well could be, I was reciting from memory, but since his name is xlracer that would make sense

Default XL

Makes sense, and I seem to remember mine having an XL stamp on them... I have slept a few times since then so my memory of them is a little vague. I looked around the obvious places for an XL plate and came up empty. Any thoughts on where I might find one for a standard mount(not short) size 9?

Hey Rebecca what are these at the bottom do you have a model number on them anywhere?

Hey Billj the answer to the question is yes that is an XL. You will have a real hard time finding one these days. I almost cried when I saw the pristine condition of this one the day it arrived. The XL was sand cast and made by hand by a fellow that past away years ago. Mike V in TX made the SST and it was a very close replica to the XL. The toe stop on the SST was set out further from the trucks to accomodate the space needed for the bigger wheels of the 80's vs the little wood wheels we raced on in the 70's.
I bought a SST from the DOC a few years ago. If anyone would have an XL or a SST it would be DOC. Good Luck.

Those are a Featherweight and I was told it was the ice version. It seems just the tiniest bit sturdier than the only other pair of (roller) Featherweights I've had my hands on.

This just proves how rare they are. The DOC does not own any.

Newbie here, I was hoping to find some speed skates "used" for my daughter's 13th birthday because she wants to get into Roller Derby. I didn't know skates were so expensive! So, I went to the flea market and the only thing they had at this one place were these Oberhamer 61s (is this called "old school"?) with Sure-Grip Cyclone plates and Meta-Flex Dragster wheels. Strangely they're her size! I hope I did good for her. Any suggestions regarding another pair for skating to and from school outside and sidewalks, would be appreciated..Please forgive the ignorance about skating..BTW I registered hoping later she is active on this forum. Seems like a great place to hang for skaters!

Oh, most of us would love to find some Oberhamers at a flea market! So you did well. The Sure Grip Invader package is real popular with the derby crowd lately.

There are a lot of vendors carrying it. Ultimate Skate Supply, Leadjammer Skates, Connies, DerbySmack were some that popped up when I googled it.

I would say that maybe unwittingly you did a GREAT job!! For sure she will proibably want some more modern wheels, but those are great plates and a great boot. Later on down the road she could switch to Double action trucks, But it's not really necessary!

Yeah wish I could find a Pair of Ob's like those at a Flea market and that fit me!!


Oh yeah a pic of my Ob's

I took them to the local skating rink and the guy told me that it would be a major pain to take the wheels off because there are loose bearings. True? Also he said the axles would need replacing, because new bearings would not fit them. Is that true? He did mention the double action trucks, but suggested these would be great for skating in the rink, and to delay getting new ones until she establishes she's serious about it for around 6 months.

I was hoping to be able to put street wheels on them because she wants to skate to school, which is about 3 + blocks away. This "Rebel Invader" skate package seems to be priced fairly competitively, but Obviously for a short-term measure if it were feasible and not too difficult I'd opt for some modern bearings and wheels for the street and then just switch them up and go with the Dragsters for indoors for a few months and see how she's doing with it. Choices, choices. It was very serendipitous to find these though, I think.
