Well you probably have to buy a mold, a bunch of metal, and a machine to melt the metal, ect. if you want to save money you should probably buy the chaepest trucks you can. Be sure to make an instructable that project sounds like something I want to do.

I think building new trucks from scratch is going to be an unrewarding task. You might get them built but I doubt that you will be happy with the result.  If you HAVE to build them from scratch just copy the idea any way you can.

If you can find a pair of used trucks you can rebuild them, or maybe use as is.

I would want something substantial under me if I was building a powered skateboard.

THat would probably power a skateboard just fine. I've seen one that did the same thing somewhere is he seemed to be happy with it.
