I have always wanted Octobans. I could never justify the price as I really have no use for them other than having a lot of fun. Since the 80s really, when I saw my older brother's friend had a set. Left an impression.

So I happen to run across a full set of high pitch ones. It has the Stilt stand, Starclassic lugs, and the older square type bracket. This puts them around 2000-2003 time frame from what I can tell.

Cleaned them up. I would say they were in Very Good condition. A few tiny nicks, but this black textured finished is the world's easiest to touch up. Just a fine point Sharpie. Came out looking close to new!

The square type brackets didn't have rubber bushings, so that is annoying. They also don't tend to sit tightly on the mounts, there is a bit of wiggle room. I assume they are all this way. I see newer rounded brackets, MTB-OCT, with rubber bushings. I wonder if they hold tighter? Anyway, spending money on that would defeat the deal I got - $125 for all 4 plus the stand!

Thanks everyone!

Any comments on the two different mounting brackets, old versus newer? Are the newer ones tighter?
