Hey everyone
I have a Kirby classic and a Kirby omega. I have a few bags and I was wondering what bags came originally with the vacuums.

I may have said this to you before, but in case you've forgotten, here I go again:
1. The 1CR Classic and early 1CB Classic Omega both had the KGF-40 golden yellow cloth bag (photos 1-2 and 4).
2. After around September 1973, the 1CB Classic Omega switched to a pinstriped jean cloth bag. (photo 3)
3. Then, around September 1974, the 1CB Classic Omega switched to a diamondback vinyl cloth bag, which would run until being replaced by the 2CB Classic III in 1976. (photos 5-6)

The bag cloth style in photo 4 was also used as a service replacement by Kirby from the mid 1970s/early 1980s, but did not have the model-specific front patch after around 1981.
