I have done that. But never been a 555 fan, but if I HAD to have a pair..the orange ones would be it.

Me too. I have one pair of 502's, one pair of 505's, one pair of 444's and one set of brakes, currently in service to the 444's. I could use the old runaway straps, but then I'd have to buy a helmet. The odds of getting whacked on the head by your Heads rises sharply when your Heads are tethered to your feet.

Of course, you wouldn't want to loose your heads!

In the event of a release, were you required to yell "Off with them!"?

I had these marked. They went for $155, about $200 including shipping:

I was watching too....thought they'd look nice between the Smash's and the Mk IV's

But wasn't thinking they'd go THAT high

I remember a guy I used to work with had a pair of Hart Billy Kidds that I used to laugh at when leaving him in the dust. Now, I'd kind of like to rescue a pair and clean them up just for the nostalgia aspect. I felt the same way looking at the Yahoos, Yahoo Freestyle, and Yahoo IIs. But, I wouldn't go over $25 for something like that. It's amazing what you CAN get for $25 on Craigslist though:

Yeah, just the right width for an F17 or a Phoenix.:

Are these worth something... like for collectors?

I have out in the garage, Salomon 637 and Salomon 747 bindings attached to skis....

I remember when I got the 747's on my Kazama Winter Magic skis... I thought they were pretty cool... I started out with cable bindings and leather boots.

It's interesting that they changed the hole pattern from the 727's.
Anyone remember what year these first showed up? 1983?
This was a 5-12 DIN binding

I think 82, the year the Rossi VP and "VAS" skis came out.

877's are 90's. There was a 47 and 57 series still in the 80's.

That so. I might have had these before the masses. The 812s were bought from my ski school director in 1984. He was a Salomon rep. They had 727s on them then he changed them. They were drilled twice but already had these bindings on them when I got them-I think??. I do recall it was a killer deal and the bindings were brand new demos. I don't recall putting new bindings on them in the 90s but I suppose it is possible. I do remember taking them in for a base grind, but might have done so cause something broke on a binding. If the hole patterns are the same than it is not out of the question that they are the third set of bindings.

Bonus peek at K2 Corner new additions to 08-09 quiver K2 Fours and CaBrawlers

LOL, I bet I know what happenned. CRG takes 1982 skis in for base grind in 1994 prior to trip out West. Brittle old binding or ski break crumbles at shop and shop replaces with closes thing available to them saying nothing. CRG picks up skis and checks bottoms of skis very carefully to ensure they are flat and sharp. CRG never notices that they are different (newer and better) red salomons
SWEET!

Either that or CRG swapped 195 cm 812s with someone along the way Not likely though cause mine have a very unique 4" chunk of topsheet/cap edge repair there since 1984.

If you pull the 877 off the ski, you can see a circle that has the actual production date.

Good to know, but I prefer not tinkering around with very old things that are currently in working order. I did think it was odd that the unused 90s EPX Carbons I got on eBay had the same bindings. But before that I never thought anything odd of it. Guess cause I lived in Texas only skied about 10 total days a year through the late 80s and 90s.

OK, here's a photo of the 812s from 1985. I think those are actually 737Es mounted on them at that time

I had a pair of these purchased new in 1983. Also the SX 90 Equipe boots, mounted on Kastle SC's. After, breaking 3 of the Kastles, I mounted them on Head SL Races. (signed by Steve Mahre at the Snigrab in Seattle) I skied these on and off for about 10 years. I broke (delaminated) one of Heads landing in between 2 moguls. I couldn't find a match. I think my folks sold the bindings for $5 at a yard sale.
