Vintage Kite Collectors?

Hi guys,

Does anybody know of any collectors of vintage kites that may be interested in a couple of kites recently passed on to me?
One is a Naish model that predates even C kites and has a huge bar with it. I am unsure of the model sorry but it has the original patent notification from the legaignoux brothers printed on it. It only has 2 lines and looks like one of those that was used to drag boards with the 'rider' lying down (I found a photo on a website).

The other is a Naish ARX 13.5m with bar that looks around the 2000 vintage but, amazingly, is still in reasonable condition.
I have no idea if either of these kites will still fly as I haven't got the balls to even try flying them!

They'd be free to go to a good home of an enthusiast in kite history or a vintage kite collector if such a thing exists yet.
Appreciate your collective thoughts (I anticipate a large number of age related jokes ).

Put on buy and sell as beginners set up
Much more entertaining than storing them in the loft
