What type of board have I stumbled across?

Hey everyone. I'm new to the forum but I've been boarding for 12 years. I've never gotten into different types of boards and what's what. I've recently come across a Burton board and I don't know anything about it. If anyone can enlightment as to what type of board, how old, how useful, and its worth then I would be very grateful!

Um, I think the classification would be "Ancient Artifact". All I can tell about it is that it's old, might be worth something as a peice of snowboarding history, I can't imagine riding it though.

A Burton Cruzer 165cm. would say is from mid to late 80's. so looking at 20 some odd years old. Not worth anything really. Couple of my friends back then had the Burton cruzer. Might find a collector for it but who knows. Better off buying something within the last couple years. Burtons where tanks back then and heavy in comparison to todays boards.

The season is almost upon us!!!!

It's either an 86 or 87 cruzer. Probably not very practical to ride. Better suited to put on your wall. There's one listed on ebay for $199 or best offer. Personally, I wouldn't pay more than $50, but it's subjective.

Thanks for the input everyone. I figured that it was nothing special, but I wanted to make sure before I did anything with it. And don't worry, its not my daily ride...I have a Rossi.

cool site. i looked through it and they charge $30 for an appraisal. but maybe they'll give him a ballpark for free. i saw they have a cruzer without bindings in their pics. they might want his since it's complete.
