Here's my rank order take on selling.

1. List it here first.  No fees and the folks here know what items are worth and don't give you a run around.  A lot of yellow has passed through this site and I've never heard of a problem. 

2. Craiglist.  No fees, there are search engines that "hunt" the entire CL web site.  However, last few sales I have gotten a lot of tire kickers, low-ball offers, and no shows.

3. vintage sleds . com classifieds.  No fees and vintage sled targeted folks.  Lot of people buy and sale on that site.  Worth a shot for sure.

4. Facebook Marketplace.  No fees and wide exposure.  Had a few tire kickers and etc.  Got to join Facebook though.  I've had little luck selling good stuff.  Low dollar and cheap moves quick.

5. ebay.  Fees; however, lot of the overseas buyers seem to like buying sleds via ebay.  Strong money for good sleds.  I sold a couple years ago that left for europe via Port of Philadelphia.  Heard good things about Port of Philadelphia vs Boston/NYC/Norfolk.  Best place and rates I've heard for the overseas buyer in North Sydney, NS.  However, the transporation cost to Nova Scotia is a killer.


Canadian Kijiji I've had no experience.  Canadian Friends please chime in.

I will take some pics of my setup. Harbor freight wheels with some angle iron on my 71 Oly.  This is the best vintage ride I have ever been a part of.  I am kind of partial being from Michigan but truly the best ride.  Not many can say they have crossed it on a sled. I recommend something with bogies. St Ignace Chamber of a commerce website has sign up info.

I'm preparing to sell some of my restorations. There are many venues, of course, including ebay. I have no experience there as a seller. If any of you guys have sold sleds on ebay I would like to talk with you and hear your experience and any advice you may be able to impart to me.  If you're willing please email me your phone number. I'm at...

I am not too sure of the brand?  I also am pretty sure you can search eBay and find comet and salsbury and Chinese knock off of them still in production for the keyed shafts
