Light weight red plastic wheels

Moderator please note: There seems to be no FF specific area in "Classified ads" so I've entered this here. Please move to appropriate place, or delete, if need be.

I have an over abundance of red plastic rubber model wheels. More than I will EVER use. These are light wt,. and available in two sizes.

Smaller is 3/4"dia.x 5/32" wide and very much like (same??) the old Sleek Streak wheels.

Larger is 1-1/16" dia. x 7/32"wide and similar to what came with Sig Monocoupe, 29ner, etc.

Both have small diameter axle hole (approx 1/32" dia. )and a sturdy hub.

Send an S.A.S.E. (Remember those?? That's a "Self Addressed Stamped Envelope") along with $1.00 U.S. (paper or coins) and I'll send it back with your choice of 4 larger or 5 of the smaller wheels. Please make your preference known, otherwise I'll ship 2 large and 2 small. Did I mention they are red?

Attention: Just realized I made a similar offer some time back and I still have a boat load of wheels. Submit an S.A.S.E. to above address and I'll send you four wheels, 2 large and 2 small for free! This is a limited time offer.

Charlie -

Your Red Plastic Wheels Rolled into Terre Haute yesterday.
They came through the mail fine.

I have been looking through my plan collection at simple, rugged, rubber power R.O.G.s to build for/with my 5 year old grandson this winter. These wheels should work great- they are light and the hubs look pretty sturdy.

Thanks for offering them up.

Best to you -
Jerry

GREAT! Was wondering about the larger wheels exceeding the .025 max thickness rule at USPS, for1st class envelopes. Glad they didn't mike it, like I did!
Enjoy.

Hi Charles,

This is a wonderful offer! If you still have a few wheels to give out I'd be happy to drop a buck into a SASE this evening.

Thanks for taking the time to make these available to folks.

Andrew
