Read this first:

The kites on this page are NOT owned by Leading Edge Kites, they are from a collection that belonged to a friend and fellow kiteflyer who is no longer with us. They have been collected, flown and loved over a 30 year period and represent some of the finest kites made around the world. We are selling them on behalf of the family.

ARE THESE FOR YOU? I assume most of these kites will be bought by existing flyers who have always wanted one of these models (and a bargain!) but there is no reason a novice can’t fly them. Quality designs like these are actually much easier to fly so don’t be put off if you are new to kite flying, they’ll still be suitable for you.

WARRANTY: Because they are second hand, they naturally come with NO WARRANTY. I have tried in the photos and in the text to give a full description, warts and all, of each kite. Where a kite needs a replacement part I will give you the part so all you will need to do is put in the time to fit it…this isn’t rocket science so all it involves is time, 15 minutes on average.

POSTAGE:  Freight on any of these kites will be $20.00. (Because they are over 1 metre in length, Australia Post charges a $10.00 surcharge on top of the regular postal charge.)

PAYMENT: Because these are private sales we can’t put them through our regular ‘buy online’ process. This is why there is no ‘buy now’ link on the pages. If you’re interested in one, give me a call or send me an email and I can tell you what I know about the kite. We can take card payment, we just can’t do it online.  

FLYING LINES: These don’t come with flying lines. I’m assuming most will be bought by existing flyers who want both a great kite at a bargain price as well as a piece of history and therefore you will have existing appropriate line sets. If you don’t have lines, I can recommend which is appropriate and can arrange purchase as well.

Single Line Kites:

These are big kites and as such are NOT suitable for children. Again, they don’t come with flying lines but I can advise you on what to use when you email or call me. Most of these are Rokkaku’s (google it) and as such are incredibly stable flyers. The 2 deltas are great light wind lifters and best flown with a long tail to give them a wider wind range.
