If anyone needs and pale yellow handlebar tape

60s plastic. I won 4 rolls on ebay and they sent me about 18, I guess just to get rid of them! Takes 2 to do the bars. Though I've been collecting odd colored plastic tape for years (sometimes its just what you need) but I'll never use this many up. 2 rolls free for postage.

Have you got photos so we can check out the approximate colour?

Thanks dbakl, that's very generous of you!

I'm interested in a photo too as I'm afraid the yellow I ordered yesterday will be too bright for my taste. Pale sounds better.

Ok, let me just pry this horse's mouth open!

I'm keeping 4, 6 have been requested, that leaves about 12 rolls. $2 bucks shipping? Not sure what the cost will be. Yellow is pale, a little towards a green tint, not an orange tint.

I don't want any, just an observation: This tape appears similar to the plastic tape used on Schwinns in the 60s & 70s so anyone restoring a vintage Schwinn bike will be interested. Don

Could be Schwinn, don't know. So far I have responses from:

2 for McDave, have address
2 for unworthy1, no address
4 for top506, have address
2-4 for tolfan, no address

Send me an email with address and I'll get them out, say Wednesday. Send me back whatever postage that comes on your package, seems simplest. Those that don't I'll post their names and call them the low-life scums they are to the world!

Ok, trying to mail tape today. I have:

DW in Illinois
MP in Maine
DD in Winters, Texas
DD in Kingsland, Texas
charlisity in California
F Mc In Pennsylvania
AG in SF

Might have 2 more rolls if someone wants to email me an address.

Actually, 5 rolls left. If you're really frugal you can make 2 sides of a bar with 1 roll!

They're off! Postage just under 2 bucks I think.
