Anybody have a Good Condition 67.5" HO A1??

I'm feeling nostalgic, and looking for one of my old favorites. Searches on Ski-It-Again turn up nothing. Makes me wonder, why are there no 66.25 or 67.5 HO A1's for sale?

    It was the perhaps the best ski of it's era.

    Only problem with them is the matte top sheet discolored very easily. Will be difficult to find one hat isn't faded. Still see quite a few on the water but they don't age well.

    Right on. I had one in a 68.75 size. The topsheet had some scuffs and discoloration by the time I was done with it. I don't care about looks, just looking for that ride. It's the one that made me fall in love with this sport.

    I have an S2 that I repainted with Awlgrip. I was thinking an A1 would look nice with a white top.

    I would like to buy a 67.5 HO A1 also....if anyone is cleaning out the garage or ski shed. I bought the one I am skiing on now 6 years ago used on SIA and have 700+ sets on it so far.

    I bought a spare this spring and would like to have another one.

    The A1 is a great ski for me and I haven't found else that works for me as I don't adapt to change very well at my advanced age.

    Thanks!!

    A buddy of mine is looking for a 67.5 A1. None on SIA at the moment. Please let me know if you have one collecting dust. Thanks
