Ben Liversedge #2.
Ben rode for Real, ATM and Infamous. Infamous was a company done with Jahmal Williams and Mike Hernandez. An interesting fact about Ben is that he was born in England and his family moved to Long Island when he was five.
For more lost East Coast action, check out the Hard Times video that just went up on the Thrasher website. Tim Upson and Brian Seber are involved with the project. Coincidentally, the next board I'm going to set up will be a Hard Times board. The deck looks good - nice shape and thick paint. I've been riding the same Toy Machine Johnny Layton board for the last couple of months and it's just about done, but it still feels fine.
Thanks to Chops for having scanned the Transworld Interview with Ben that I couldn't find last night. I now see that it ran in the April 1999 issue of the magazine.
