    Benotto and Hunt-Wilde vinyl bar tape

    I came across a fellow selling a bunch of these brands, for $1/roll. I bought all of the Benotto (6), and 4 of the Hunt-Wilde. He still has a box full of the Hunt-Wilde left.

    For a $1/roll, should I grab it all? It doesn't seem to be a mover on eBay, but the colors are pretty and it might be good for vintage flip bikes.

    What do you guys think?

    Grab it. If you don't, let me know where I could get a hold them. I'm too cheap to buy the $9 dollar rolls off of ebay.

    The WHITE Hunt-Wilde plugs are needed for a production correct Carlsbad Masi.

    They have gone for various amounts, $4 to $15 per pair, one might just have to have the correct timing.

    No plugs, just little red labeled cello bags with one continuous roll. Package states "15 feet x 3/4 inches".

    I just wrapped the bars on an old Motobecane, and the one roll did the trick on both sides, with about 4" of tape left over.

    Sometimes I get stupid when stuff is too cheap. I went back and bought 40 rolls, and he tossed in a bunch of generic chrome plugs.

    Great move. Just the thing for '70's bikes. Much better than just white bar wrap. Much better.

    Please save me a roll of lemon yellow if you have it. I bought one on Ebay a little while back and it never arrived, despite the seller claiming he sent it.

    I know nothing about Schwinn "correctness", but this stuff looks a lot like the stuff that was on the Varsities of my youth. The light and dark blue, the green, and the red look exactly like Schwinn colors to me.
