Default Old rink skates

After tearing down a bunch of skates from 2 rinks, I have some old school wheel sets. Red and Green Metaflex wheels. Some Labeda rink wheels. 1 set of Dragsters, the wide green wheels. Most of these are in good shape. Just reminds me how slick the old pop up tent rinks floors were back in the day!
And how heavy Chicago skates are too... those things weigh a ton!

What MetaFlex's do you have? I skated them and I loved them. Been trying desperately to find the right wheel.

Loved those wheels.

Gathered up a bunch of the old school wheels. There is enough to choose from to make several decent sets. And more still crated but on complete skates. Metalflex Challengers and Easyriders + another Metaflex version as well (high speeds). 65 Fomac Premiers. Some smaller Fomacs too. A bunch of Contell wheels. And a bunch of wheels with no graphics at all. I didnt have my phone on me so pics of some of the wheels tomorrow hopefully.
Some of these wheels could be cut down some for the small wheel guys too.

Are the Fomacs in good shape? I bought some factory seconds off ebay and they are a blast to skate.

Any NTS tiny plates? Looking for a 5 1/2 inch overall plate. Max wheelbase, minimum plate length for a toddler build.

Default pulling bearings

found that the cotrell and metaflex wheels had cheaper bearings. some no name hard urethane wheels had all old fafners. In great condition and spinning smoothly, go figure...
