Information from the owner:
MR Custom Order
“I ordered this early 1979 after going to Mark’s shop and discussing what I wanted with him for over an hour. I wanted a Bertleman stripe after seeing it in a magazine. When I picked up the board, Mark said he had slimmed the stripe down and changed it slightly so as not to be accused of totally copying the Bertleman stripe. From the conversation, I believed at the time, and still do, that Mark shaped this board. I have read that he often left his initials off customs for customers but wouldn’t know if this is true or not. There are no shapers initials on this board so could be true.”
