Finally, after fighting all winter and trying to get a pair, I was able to score a pair of Hippo Hands on flee-bay today for $51.00!

A few weeks ago, I lost out on the pair I really wanted, the logo was yellow, not blue, and there was a change holder in the left hand. Went too high for my wallet. I will be happy with the ones I got and warmer in the winter. :D

I guess not, and with the winter we just hand there wasn't much need for it either, but if next winter is like the norm around here, they will get used A LOT!

They're here, they're here! Looks like I got some of the "Hippos of 1975-78..." like those on the left.



They came complete with the dust and dirt. Now after the winter we just had, I am not looking forward to another winter, but riding with these will be more comfortable! :)

I'm still looking for a 73-74 set with the yellow logo and coin pouch, but I don't want to pay what they are selling for.

A set recently went for about $150 on ebay. The seller had no idea what he had listed as his description was way off the mark.
