Saw this on an auction site. No reserve. No bids. Could be yours for a buck or two.

I lusted after those when I was 15. I'd buy them now as wall hangers, and I don't even ski anymore.

Mine were 175 cm Mark IV Comps with Salomon 555 bindings. One of the first recreational skis with a smooth base and turned up tail.
They rocked then and probably still do now. :rock:

Thanks CyberK. Because of your post I remembered that my brother still had the Olin skis I got for him when I was a ski tech.
I now have a pair of new/old longboards. Olin Mark V racing series 200cm with Look N77R bindings. I've done the base prep and getting ready to remount the bindings. (yes everybody, at my own risk) I was looking for a little more stability at higher speeds. Now, if I can just get them to turn...

You need some Dynamic VR17s or VR27s in at least 210, and of course a Derbyflex plate between the ski and the binding. All they sell now is crap compared to that setup.
