Hi Cath,
I don't have a price yet, as I haven't secured the value of the kite.... It's either a great first edition Rev 1 or a great Rev 1 collectors item...
I think if I got $250 right now, I'd sell it. (thru Paypal) AND check all photos and ask questions, as no returns.
Thanks
Barbara

Barbara, I am interested! Do you have a price in mind yet?

Hi .. How could I contatc the Hadzicki Bros.... Do you have their website or email address? I have read some of their articles, but not find a direct contact info.
Thanks,

Barbara


This looks interesting.
There are a number of items in you pictures that do not belong with the standard REV I.
I think Revolution made a training stick kit very early on which I have never seen. These extra parts just might be them.
Then there is a line equalizer. This was not an item included with a REV, however it might have been purchased separately.
You should have one of the Hadzicki brothers look at these pictures and see what they say.

Barb,

Following John's comments, and the pictures, yes I'm still interested.

Let's hear what Lollie, Joe and David say. But please keep me in mind, if you still want to sell after talking to them.

PayPal is fine, if I can still remember how to use it :confused!: !!!

Nice looking kite, I have One similar age but retired due to a rip in the Leading Edge mesh.

I agree with John, the additional parts look like they would make up the sticks to go on the back of the sail, often called magic sticks or training wheels.

Wonder if Rev did supply these all that time back, it seems strange if they didnt come with the kite that an owner went to all the trouble of setting them up without ever flying it.

Not that I question the fact that it has never been flown.

And if John has never seen that colour combination it must be pretty rare.

I talked to Lolly at Rev a while ago and she said she made many of the early Rev 1's.

Will be a good buy, hope you manage to make yourself and the buyer happy with the price.

They confirmed is was a Rev 1 (patent pending) and there was not ahuge production run. They suggested I sell it with the photos of the current equipment, but would not suggest a price.
I'm sticking with $250 as I wander around the internet. I saw one for $333..... Interested?

Thanks for letting me have a shot, Barbara, but go ahead with your efforts - it would be a few days before I can follow thru, but please don't wait for me.

Thanks!
