Buying your retired Arbor for display

I'm looking a used Arbor wooden top sheet board to be wall mounted as decoration in the man cave. Since its going to be used purely as decoration, condition of the base and edges doesn't really matter at all, and dings and nicks in the top sheet are fine as long as its something that could be sanded and refinished (no huge chunks missing)

Since this is going to be just for display and not for riding, this probably isn't a good candidate for the 2011 Coda that you only rode twice and want 70% of retail for. But if you have an old Element, A-Frame or something similar that's been ridden hard for years and its time for it to retire, or a newer board that's got some nasty base damage, here's a good chance to get a few bucks for it.


I don't own the boards below, this is just a picture I found online to give an idea of what I'm looking for.

Sorry, I'm looking for something with the wood top and minimal decal. Something along the lines of an A-frame, Element, Roundhouse, or Woodie like the ones pictured below.

Check your local craigslist/ebay. You might happen to get lucky there.

you might try contacting Arbor with this request. i'm sure they have alot of unridable defective boards, warranty claims, etc. laying around the factory.
