Just came though on my Twitter, the mountain is making available for sale a limited number of former South Ridge Double and Triple Chairs.  They are really weathered and are $250/dbl, $300/tpl and it is you hauling it.  Call 800.543.2754 if you are interested to reserve yours.

I got one, little nervous sight unseen but sure some elbow grease rust primer and paint will look good. They said these are old ones that have been lying around, not sure why they waited so long. Maybe all the inquires about Spruce made them realize they had a Goldmine rusting away. They also say they are holding onto Spruce any speculation as to why? Backside Oz ! Ha

One of the talented folks on this board, should put their skills to use and fix all of these chairs up for the owners.  I will start the bidding and offer to pay $200 to make mine look like MissyWinters.  :)

Or you can wait for next weekend.  There are 5 chairs all done up nice in South Ridge, even mounted with feet, that I may have heard may be auctioned off at fall fest with those proceeds going to MASR.  Didn't get solid confirmation, but source seemed legit (and they were still there on Tuesday).

Lots of effort, but worth it :)    Christmas lights come next.

Don't under estimate the work.  I restored three, one for a fundraiser, one for a wedding gift, and one for me.  plan on a grinder with very stiff wire brush.  Some have ugly thin metal slats welded onto the seat, we ground those off and went back to the wooden slats.

Like Steve said - lots of work. Ours was going in our porch so had to figure that all out. It seriously wouldn't have been possible without cartman making custom made hanging pieces for us. I think if I had to pay someone an hourly rate to get ours done would have been 100+hours. Had to remove some trim to install, put header in wall, and put the motherfycking heavy thing up. We're so happy with it but could never imagine doing this is a moneymaking effort unless you're selling for $5k lol.

We cut off the hanging piece - wouldn't have worked and took a lot of weight off. So another puzzle - how to hang? Everything was a little puzzle along the way.

Valley House Double ChairIt's not that bad.  When we got our Valley House Double chair,  Terri and I did most of the prep work in one weekend.  Painting took parts of another.  A couple of trips to Home depot for hardware and then installation.  We chose to keep the frame the original galvi look with the original number.  The actual original wood from 69 was still under the pads in fairly good condition.  We carefully prepped it and painted it VT Green like the MRG single and added stainless carriage bolts and nuts and washers.  Certainly for a professional painter like Mr. Dan this will not be a problem.
