On Monday night, around 6pm, my area had a microburst. Our driveway isn't exactly graded properly, so a ton of water came into the garage. The garage is attached to a workroom and my office in the finished basement. Let's just say I need new carpet, and new paneling.
However, in cleaning the workroom, my lovely wife made a discovery. Back in like 1991 or 1992, she bought me a dual line kite (back when all I knew was the term stunt kite). I flew it for a few years, then kind of dropped out of the kite scene because of whatever reasons.
I bet you can see where this is going. It's a Griffin III, I think. 8 foot wingspan. I put it together to see it's condition. The sail looks to be in good shape. The struts seemed to be solid, though I didn't actually test it. I think the bridle lines are not in good shape, there was a powdery residue on them. No water got near the bag, so there's no damage from that. I'm excited to get it in the air again.
I bought this kite a few years back with the plans to take kite flying to a different level .... due to life changes this kite was only flown once maybe twice. It is in new condition. I assembled the kite the other night and I had forgot just how nice a kite this is.
$325.00 plus shipping
I have no strings to go with the kite
SOLD Superman ... 1 x USED TOTL Spin-off left
The original Superman Spinoff. I remember seeing Don and team at Wildwood, NJ perform an amazing number set to the Superman sound track. This was one of those inspirational moments that helped me get to Disney.
Sail is still brilliant with one small puncture (see photo) I also have one more that is super faded that could be flown or kept as spare parts. Decided to hold on to the faded pink on left.
How about the Superman & faded on right for $200 + shipping OBO
65"H x 45"W - Big kite -12 - 22 mph if I recall.
This kite was only flown once at a special event. Everything on it is in like new condition but for a small puncture (see photo). What a kite! What a site! The rotation of the smaller inner box and the outer go in opposite directions. I'm not sure who made it as the original bag is no where to be found as of yet. Thinking Premier from years ago?
