Old K2 Skis

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have a pair of K2 710FO Limited Production for the 1980 Olympics. I used them for racing in 81` and 82`. Are these things worth anything? I also have the Bag that is limited production. They are 195cm with Salomon 727comp bindings. Ran a lot of races with them back in the day so they are not in perfect condition! Any ideas?

I do have a ton of great memories with them! They are getting mounted on the wall in my basement man cave! Right above the bar! Cheers!

They really went better with MRR's but the 727E was a fine second choice.  The bag would be cool. I bet you could have some good auto upholsterer could make some sweet barstool covers out of bag.

The foam cores in those breaks down after a couple years so they're probably just noodles with edges now.  Would still be fun on a retro day.  If the 727s are the all metal ones they are probably still functional though.  I had the model year (topsheet) after that one and really loved that ski.

They were a great ride in thier day, I've had a lot of K2's over the years, the rest of them are part of my ski fence didn't have the heart to add these ones. Love the idea of using the bag for bar stool covers! Also still have the Dynafit boots!

My 710 FOs didn't make the move to NC.  I wish I had make room to bring them.  They'd be here if I had.  At least I can still look at these in all their former glory..

 

 

It would have been sweet to be able to kept every ski I ever owned from a child, but I plan to try to keep this going for the ones I lose use for and can't pass on to others that can still use them.

Here's a pic of the old K2's, I think they need to be hanging on a wall!
