How much for a nice pair of "The Ski" Bobby Burns skis?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hi Everyone.  I'm looking at a pair of Bobby Burns "The Ski" skis, in blue. General condition is about a 9/10.  What is the most I should pay for a pair of these? (Bindings are just middle of the road model).  Your thoughts are appreciated very much.

 

 Regards,

They're not going to ski as well as a nicely maintained pair of recent model rental fleet skis.  But then you probably already know that.

 

As for nostalgic appeal, the beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  I've seen similar go for $500 with the perfect one mount bindings (Spademans).  I've seen similar go for $150 with crappy bindings.  I wouldn't pay over $100 for anything retro or vintage in ideal condition.  But, I wouldn't walk away from something I've always wanted, or used to have and want again just to have it when the price is reasonable.

Thank you, C! I appreciate it!  I'm not sure if these skis have a one mount binding, I'll ask the guy.

 

Btw, I love the vintage stuff, 70's and early 80's!

 

Regards

There are a pair of lavender ones on Ebay right now, IMHO, not the best color option. Blue/Blue is not a common color combo, most are blue/yellow.

I have a pair of Bobbie Burns Skis for sale if anyone is interested.  These skis are in great condition and have the salomon 555 blue/chrome bindings on them.  I want to say this pair of skis hails from around 78'.  The skis are really cool, I'm just sick of dragging them around with me as I hop from seasonal position to seasonal position.  (my wagon is full enough) If anyone is interested please shoot me an email with an offer.  Erik4651@gmail.com
