They're great. Good shape, almost new, great fun for some kid/s.

Good catch.

Great deal! I keep looking at old trashed sleds at junk/curio/antique stores as I think one would look good as a wall hanger in my cabin home.

That's a start. Flea mkts seem to be a good place to sell old sleds. The Flex' Flyers go the quickest or so I've been told. YMMV. tom.

I would think that with an interesting base and a glass top you might have a great coffee table.

They can be worth something. But I don't know much about what is valuable.

They don't even make that kind of quality anymore, do they?

I mean if you wanted a sled nowadays and couldnt find one of the classics, what is for sale, where would you even look for a new one and what are they selling?
