Structo Keepsake Box Roller Skate TruckJuly 11th, 2016 in member junk
I started this truck with a vintage Structo truck cab I was lucky enough to run across. I built a false floor brace to mount it to the roller skate (old Chicago brand). I matched it up with a heavy silverplate keepsake box. I customized the cab with a drawer handle, an ornamental nut, screws, washers, and two valve handles (horn). The keepsake box is ornamented with license plate parts, napkin ring parts, and a keychain license tag. There's a good bit of custom work that went into this one to make it work.
