Kirbys!

His Kirbys!

1 of 4: 1989 Legend II, 1968 Dual Sanitronic 80

2 of 4: 560 (1960) and 509 (1949)

3 of 4: 509 closer up

4 of 4: Dual Sanitronic 80 attachments and other varied Kirby stuff 

 

He also has a 1978 Classic III. The pristine pre-1978 cloth bag I saw on it was there since when he first found it, the original 1978 cloth bag was ratty.

A multitude of Kirbys and Royals waiting to be restored and/or sold! Among them are several heavy-duty commercials from the '70s-'80s!

Thanks, Toastermike. A great collection. I especially like seeing the Eureka R and M models. Not all that many R's were around, it seems.
