I've been a collector of vintage Kirby's for about 10 years now, but no longer have the space (or really the floors) to continue on. Looking to move the following to a new home:
2x Dual Sanitronic 80
Dual Sanitronic 50 (mainly in parts in a couple boxes)
Classic Omega

Also a bunch of attachments from carpet shampooers to Handi-Butlers and most in between. I have a lot of the specific boxes of attachments for them as well. Will try to get some pictures tonight.

A dual 50 is pretty tempting...

Looking forward to those pictures.

I would be interested in some parts. I have a newer Gen3 that needs a shampooer. Or any attachment for the older 505 to 518 or anything older than that.

Here are some pics, the only one not shown is the Classic Omega. The oldest unit I have for grabs in the DS50 (not really pictured since it's torn apart in at least one box) I don't remember if I have any attachments for anything older than the DS80's, in fact I don't think I have any attachments for the DS80. The gray bin is full of bags (for the tradition/heritage/heritage 2) as well as misc attachments and parts, the clear bin that's sitting under the attachment boxes has multiple hoses. The heritage does have the top handle to go with it, it's in one of the boxes, I never finished restoring it

Is the D50 free?
I am interested in it

If someone wants to come pick up the entire pack of them, they're free. I'll need to look into shipping if someone wants them shipped.

Hey Andy,
It's in Florida, I thought I had put that in when I made my profile, but I guess not. Went ahead and updated it though

I wish I was closer. I to get one of those Dial 50's (or did you say dual 80's) that work.

Its very generous of you to pass these along. I wish I could come and pickup the whole lot. But it's just a little too far for me.

I had a friend named Patrick Wright who was from Mt. Dora. His ex-wife was named Ellen and his daughter was named Patty. He was the organist for the Methodist church on Fifth Avenue. We lost touch many years ago. I suspect he has passed away by now.


I remember him telling me that one time a movie company painted the entire town pink for some film!

Sorry to be slow to post, had the flu the past week. I will try to see what I can do about getting a shipping estimate for the D50, that estimate should also cover any of the other units if anyone wants them as well.
