I have Ntappins nice new ABC plates for sale, they are drilled for a 3/8 inch axle so are perfect for beginners just using a bmx wheel they have lying around otherwise you would have to make the hole bigger.

As for price I am looking for 20 dollars Canadian for them and I am willing to send them anywhere on earth as long as you don't mind paying shipping.

here are some pictures of them and if you would like more pictures or info just let me know.

what are they made of? how much of a beating do you think they will take?

I believe they are made out of aluminum, however they seem to be really strong, when I bought the metal I asked the guy that was helping me if I could strength test them and he let me do whatever I could to bend them. I jumped on them, balanced on them and threw them around putting all my weight on one plate at a time. I may not weigh a ton but I still gave them quite a beating and all I got out of it was a few scratches.

They are about 7mm thick and due to their shape are a bit stronger than the triangular shaped ones.

O and they weigh 3 pounds together.

Yeah I know but that is the size of my drill bit and the size of what I had in my garage and it's why I advised that people may want to drill a bigger hole

I doubt anyone can tell you how strong they are from a picture. I think they look cool with the design in the middle...definately redrill the hole and use a 14mm axle or it will suck.

how thick is the metal? can you send me a pair without a a shole in them? because they look a little low to be hopping.

ntappin
2006-02-12, 11:29 PM
I have already drilled the holes unfortunatly, and its a quarter inch thick.

ntappin
2006-02-14, 02:18 AM
I am now willing to trade plates for a marshmallow gun (rapid fire version), a zenman, or a dreamcast with jet grind radio. If you have any of these I might be interested in paying cash for them though.

those plates welded or bent? i hope there welded....

ntappin
2006-02-19, 06:30 AM
They don't look welded, so my guess is bent, but I found that they are really really strong, I have tested them to the best of my ability, as well as my friend Amanda. If you want more reviews I will try and get abbabibble and smcmorrow to write up some form of review when they get theirs.

I'm going to be picking up some more tommorrow but I don't know how many to get. If you are planning on getting any please let me know and it can garantee you a set as this may be the last chance I get at getting the current model. I already have Hag Bag and the next person to send me some money's plates.

abbabibble
2006-02-28, 02:54 AM
ok. I drilled out the correct size hole in the plates and got them on today!
check it out:
12338

i took it for a test ride in the garage and the thing seems pretty damn solid with these plates on it. They've got a good large plate base for your shoe.
Love them, would recommend anyone. Not sure about possible drop heights yet, but for $30US, they're
b-e-a YOOteefull.

2006-02-28, 02:36 PM
I'm really glad to hear that you like them. I now have another two sets available.

THESE ARE THE LAST TWO EVER. THERE WILL NEVER BE ANYMORE MADE AT THIS PRICE.

They have run out of the angled metal atm so if I decide to continue making bc plates for people they will probably look different and the cost may not be the same.

So place your orders quick before I run out, the first two people to get me money may have them.

sweet just got my plates today(guess they've been in the mailbox for a while) and there sexy. on the 19th i'll have my rim and tire and tell you how they hold up;)
p.s. the taping on the box was key lol.

ntappin
2006-03-03, 12:38 AM
Hahahha, yeah I ran out of decent boxes so I just found one in the workshop and figured that as long as it had enough packaging it would be fine.

Let me know what you think of them once you get a chance to ride em.

you package packages like my grandpa does. He stuffs insane amounts of packageing and bubblewrap in the smallest little package and then seals it with so much packing tape it'd serve as a 20-year time capsule.

Actualy for you I just got bored in class and decided to wrap it until the teacher got annoyed by the sound, then I did it some more... I don't like him at all, in fact I'm still typing this while he's talking so that I don't have to listen to him.

I sitll have three sets of these, I can ship anywhere in the world.

With shipping about the most these are going to cost is 40 dollar Canadian. It costs about 18 dollars Canadian to ship to australia and I think that is about the farthest point from Canada.
