Lovely. But the seller has already gone from $400 to $360, and I suspect he'll have to go even lower before it sells. But I could be mistaken.......

I have a 1970 Kirby cr1 I converted to a sentria bag setup. It has had only one owner other than me the second owner. If I were to guess $75 is about the top of the price range. I have all the Attachments,hose, rug renovator, handi butler, manual and bill of sale.

I've been told elsewhere it's not quite original, since the bag we see is actually a replacement from the 1980s or '90s but with the original patch sewed on it, in the wrong place.

Good looking machine. But it's priced at more than it sold for new.

"Fully restored" does not mean sell it for the restoration cost, it doesn't work that way.

I got a 1989 rebuilt Kirby 1CR that looks just as good as that for $30 shipped.

I have also a 1CR that I got over a decade ago with an aftermarket bag. That bag on the vacuum in the photo is aftermarket and the patch is fake. The aftermarket bags fade more than the OEM ones. How convenient he did not disclose that in his service list in the description.

Good thing anyone can list sell and buy products at any price they please

I cannot agree more. The constant bitching of any price on anything from the above is relentless.
FYI- you just sound bitter.
