Default VK Cherokee Babe kit

I decided to part with my Cherokee Babe kit. Might be of interest to some here as I believe it would be considered a collectors piece now. I've owned it for better than 30 years. Let me know if you have an interest or know of someone that would. Thanks[8D]

Greetings from Michigan,
What do you want for the kit? I built one many years ago and would like to build another.

It's here in the classifieds if you want to take a look.............not cheap though......I was on Frank Tiano's web site and he had one built for sale, for like $1200. And he sold it within a short time.......so I e-mailed him to ask how he managed to find the kit and he told me he got it off e-bay after looking for almost a year.......paid $235 for it....and of course related how 30 years ago he had them for $60 bucks or whatever. Anyway, thats how I figured out how to price it. VK had the regular Cherokee and the Babe, very popular in the 70's.
