Litespeed 5 for sale.
This is a very early Mk1 glider that is now 20 years old. It was originally sold new by yours truly when I was a Moyes dealer. I am now selling it on behalf of the same owner, a very good friend, all these years later.
I rigged the glider a few days ago (see photos).
The mylar sail has aged well. The airframe also looks in good condition, with the exception of the aerofoil base bar which looks like it’s had a heavy landing at some point. There is nothing missing and no sail repairs appear to have been carried out.
The glider will need a new set of wires, and maybe a base bar depending on your willingness to fly with an imperfect one. There are also two spare genuine Moyes uprights which were supplied by myself.
Despite the common consensus that these gliders are so old as to have no economic value, I sold my own one of these before lockdown for £750.
Size 5 Litespeeds are rare beasties, hence I’m asking £500 for this glider.
Also, all proceeds from this sale are being very generously donated by the current owner to help fund the ongoing mobility needs of a seriously injured fellow hangy.
Yes, I’m also tugging at your heart strings, dear reader!
