Thisissoul custom Deshi Kelso II with gold

I work for a company that restores old aggressive skates and I recently worked on this great Kelso II skate. The cool thing about it is the gold dual plate. Man I love it.
Now for sale for just 75 euro.

Nice setup.. Is the plate really golden? Looks like the old Latimer soulplate to me.

I just checked out that website. I think that's really cool. How many people run it? Where do you get the skates?

nothing against people who love deshi's. but i personally think they really need to come up with a better chassis mounting system. with deshi's, there are only two holes through which you can mount BOTH your soul plates AND the chassis (frames, bearings, wheels). this is, imo, insufficient considering 1) the bottom of the deshi boot is not solid, as opposed to a hardshell plastic boot that doesn't break, crack, or warp. 2) in addition, sometimes the holes drilled by the deshi factory are so poorly mis-alined, that you end up having to re-drill or shave the direction of the holes until your screws can reach it. i think this is horrible. 3) last but not least, to have only two mounting holes that holds all the weight of the heavy ass soul plates and chassis on a weak deshi underbottom, is only asking for your whole chassis to explode/fall off when you skate or do a massive topside. this is just my opinion. but deshi needs to make their bottoms into unbreakable, unarchable, unbridgable bottoms; and in addition, they need to make extra holes so that you can mount your sole plates and frames SEPERATELY (eg. usd classic thrones; as opposed to two-hole usd thrones -- which are pretty much two-holes like deshis; but unlike deshis the usd throne is a solid plastic boot that doesn't break like deshis.) this is my post for the day. Yay.

As far as not having bolt holes for the soul plates; It's really easy to just drill them out your self and but some anti-rivets in, regardless of the souls you are using(except maybe dual plates). I'm probably gonna do that with my DK4 souls soon.

[/quote] about the soul plates holes, the point is, the more you drill into a boot like deshis, the bigger the chance it'll completely break underfoot. that's why deshi needs to make a completely newer and stronger undersole. deshis are so bad underneath, that i wouldn't compromise any more strength by drilling holes underneath, b/c by then you're pretty much drilling whatever's left as support underneath...and eventually is crack or break through. not work it imo.

PS. maybe deshi should design some kind of hard-plastic full-length cupsole that is imbedded inside the boot or something. thatway, it is strong anough to hold the rivets and screws and stuff.

[/quote] Yeah, I see what you're saying. I've only had mine for a week so I'm still getting used to them. It would be nice if they made the plastic come up around the sides and rivet it there just above the foot bed, like you were sayins.

Not having to buy the cuff does make the skate cheaper.<br>Next to the img of the USD - UFS throne Evo 2 is a sign that says "verkocht" wich means sold in dutch. <br>Shipment to the uk is possible however, and we would be happy to send an other skate to you.<br>
