    Re: What are these tubbie things?

    We played tackle football in the street and also stick ball in the cul-de-sac in front of my parent’s house and neighborhood kids’ houses from sun up until the street lights came on. Then we knew it was time to go home. You KNEW what the punishment was if you WEREN’T back inside the house after those street lights came on!

    Hint: “I will paint your back porch red”.

    My “back Porch” was painted red pretty darn often...

    I think it's a Carter. Hard to see with that huge 'oil bath' breather on the CAST IRON intake manifold. None of plastic BS here! Maybe if I put some tubbies on it will stay straight down the road without 'herding' it.

    Mostly racers, some rec riders, and some ocean free riders use front sponsons/tubbies, but nobody uses them for flat water, freestyle, especially old skool type tricks... BRAP!
