Not perfect, but still nice:

http://www.videogameparts.com/product.sc?categoryId=21&productId=413


No way in hell I'll pay $32 for $8.00 set of grips...I'll go black first....or a different type (franky',  I actually prefer other types of grips anyway!)


Still, $32 for these are a better investment than $750 for some Multi-Jamma boards ;)

Prices are extremely high on that site, but rare=expensive. Not sure about those grips, they still seem to be manufactured so a bike shop may be able to deliver them ? I didn't like the feel of them as well. Too "mushy", no wonder why all those "ribs" come off, way to soft.

Frizz,

Get the old school Mushroom Grips.  Thats what I have, and its just like the ones I used to have on my BMX bike when I was a young chap.  They look sweet, too:

I talked to a bunch of people about that.  Its strange that all the artwork shows him with yellow grips, but the choice of blue was made.

You can put whatever color you want, good sir.
