Default Still Rideable?

Snagged this board on c-list a couple years ago for $45. Bindings it came with were broken, want to go about putting an old set of Burton Customs on er & ride it a bit.

How can I make this happen?

I can't imagine riding that in anything but powder, you won't have much control on any firm surface.
Drill and t-nut is about your only option unless you could find some bindings that would match the old hole pattern.
There are quite a few older boards out there that could be a fun ride, but the problem is finding workable bindings for them.
I have a Craig Kelly Mystery air board in decent shape ,and would love to ride it , but the old bindings need repair,and I just cant make myself drill it and reduce the collector's value of it.
Maybe some one could fabricate adaptor plates that would bolt onto the old pattern and allow you to attach modern bindings......

I drilled it & put on some old bindings a friend had.

Going to pick up some epoxy to put in the holes so I can try to get the bindings a better hold on the board.

Any suggests for something that'd work better than epoxy?

A t nut is what you should put in there.
