Source for Old Bic Longboard Parts

Post by Michael Scot » Fri, 14 Jul 2000 04:00:00


Hi all,

I have an old ('94-'96 vintage I think) Bic Melody I got for free (!),
and I need a source for some spare parts, like the universal that fits
into that special bic sliding mast track (the base looks like a flat
aluminum disk about 3 cm in diameter and about 1.5 cm tall with a groove
around the outside.

Any advice?

Cheers and TIA,
Mike

If you have a local shop then go there first. Otherwise check with Sailboard
Warehouse AKA The House. The have always had a decent supply of those sorts of
things.

I have a 96 Melody that I learned on. If it's like mine,
you can just take off the push button Bic pin-style base
entirely and replace it with a regular Chinook mast
base/cup. Buy some Chinook extensions and you'll have a
lot less headaches with spare parts/interoperability.

BTW You'll need to keep the little brass square nut
that goes in the aluminum mast track though. It's got
the same thread as the new style nut that comes with the
Chinook base, but that one won't fit.
