Capstan winch

I have a complete capstan winch for a series that is excess to my needs. Id like to sell it but I have no idea what I should be asking for it. Any ideas? If you are personally interested in buying it please recuse yourself from suggestions!

Thanks,

Keith

A friend of mine bought a crank driven capstan for 950.00 and he shopped around to find that deal.

If it's complete (crank yoke, brackets, etc), $1k to $2k depending on make. The best guy to ask is Ike at Pagolin 4x4. I guarantee you can get at least $1k. Also try posting over on Guns and Rovers.

That's one of those things that's worth a lot of money but nobody wants.

Sad but true. I have one that is in mint condition but couldn't seem to give it away. I finally put it on shop girls rig as it will only get used for show.

That said I'd imagine the right person looking for the right bit to make that right Rover look just right might spring a K for it.

I guess I should have held on to the two I sold in the 70's for about $125 each.

Who you hangin' with?! I know a lot of Series restorers looking for them. Shoot, I paid $2k a few months ago for a crank driven Koenig.

The market is much bigger in the UK and Australia. I actually had people from the UK contacting me to buy my Koenig.

I think maybe he meant that capstan winches were less sought after than the drum PTOs.

The market seems to have improved greatly. They were selling for $500-750 last I checked and only the early ones commanded real money. I have a PTO driven koenig I could part with (and a couple spare PTO assemblies).

I think I read in the grocery checkout line that the "flair" backstop has been enhanced recently.. So the flair most likely stands out more nowadays.

sounds good, I appreciate the feedback. Makes sense as I dont really want/need it, it seems rare and Ive read about them and I know that some really desire them. Its definitely a classic piece of gear.

If any one wants it or knows someone who does, you know where to find me.
