KAYAK ONLY DOES NOT INCLUDE TRAILER> This is a complete vintage Klepper Aerius II kayak in very good vintage condition. This whole kayak breaks down into several bags for easy transport. Included is original repair kit, flag, bladders for seats and seat backs (the latter blown, but probably repairable), storage bags, original Klepper brochures (!) and both paddles.The skin is usable, and after making 2 small repairs with the repair kit and Aquaseal, I had it out on the river with no leaks. However, I believe that this skin is approximately 55 years old, so I would probably replace it for any serious kayaking......
A quote from another recent sale on Ebay:
"While this is a vintage frame, many people aren’t aware that if taken care of such a frame can easily last 50 to 100 years and that IS a reality! The design is time-proven and tested and so much so that the design has been left unchanged and modern skins are readily available from Klepper America or Long Haul, so buying this and getting a new skin or a good used one for that matter will save you thousands and you will sacrifice absolutely nothing in terms or performance or structural integrity! "
The frame shows some wear, and I have replaced a few components, obtained from Long Haul Kayaks. However, it is fully serviceable. Vintage Tee Nee trailer presently not for sale.
No shipping; cash and carry. IF AD IS UP, KAYAK IS STILL FOR SALE.
