I am looking for a Russkit controller handle. Must have either Russkit R, not the Parma P, on the handle and must be metallic metalflake.

 

Thanks.


Earl Anderson

I like old retro slot car stuff , I always liked stuff that is different , color preference well I dont remember all the colors they offered , anything as long as its not painted , it does not have to be perfect , the top of the handle can be cracked or even partly missing as I might trim it to fit the controller , thanks

Earl,

Thank you for responding.
I only have one "R" controller handle and it is slated to be modified into a vintage duel micro controller for an article in Slot Cars Magazine.
Only advice I can give you is watch eBay.  Save a search for "Vintage Controller" and one will pop up eventually.

I just dug through the controller bin. All the metalflake ones I have have PARMA moulded in the handle.

 

I found red, green, blue, and gold.

 

Sorry I can't help.

This one on ebay right now is even more vintage.

 

Dude is asking $70.00 for it though.

Somebody just came in, to expose his grandson to slot racing.
 
He gave me his old Parma controller, with a red metalflake handle, but the badge has PARMA molded in.

I have a gold metalflake set of handles. You still want some? You do know they aren't Lexan and break easily? I don't go on here as often as I used to so if you are interested Email me mrboemker@gmail.com Use Handles in the title

The Bach club can't Handel me any more.

What did the guy at the pots and pans say when he was asked about his job attaching the handle to the pot?
The work is "riveting"!

Things are getting out of hand.....
