Velox Jantex Sew-up tire repair kit NOS tubular road

Not Sold at $24 including shipping

There was a time when people fixed things rather than throwing them away, and this kit is a beautiful reminder of that era. The shape, color and graphics of this simple little kit are amazing. Sadly, this one is missing the needle, but for a few dollars more the seller has complete kits.

Tubular repair is not a dead skill. Dave Moulton shows how to fix a flat here, or you can take the easy way out and send your tire and $20 to Tire Alert. But then you won't get to use this lovely repair kit. Maybe it's best to save it anyway.
