Gold tub 7011 kit?

Post by jcwrks »

The topic of a gold tub 10T came up years ago, and most (including myself) always thought there was only a black tub/nose/motor plate. This Japanese 7011 Sport kit appears to have the gold parts. :shock: I asked the seller for pics of the nose since the other two parts aren't rare.


If you have B/S/T access this is also being discussed in the eBay forum.

Mikea96’s got it posted in the eBay forum as well.
Very surprising too see this really might have existed after all the back and forth over the years about the subject.

That’s impossible, I was told you need a sponsor to race.

I’d say keep it going, this comes up in “recent topics” not just the chat area.

Good point. Not everyone has B/S/T access either.

Wow thats cool! I have heard stories but never actually saw a gold RC10T from the factory. I wonder if it was some sort of special import version.

theres been a pretty decent discussion in the b/s/t area and figured like stated above that not everyone has access to that area so dropped all the auctions pictures in here to preserve what it was and hope Jeff buys it so he can document and build it. :P

Still for sale... 1,999.99... plus shipping, of course, lol

Though, am I the only one who saw this and though it was... suspect? Like it was a black tub kit that they refinished? Awfully thick and dark gold color, Like spray paint, maybe wrong color ano. Big gash down the underside of the tub.... but with no corosponding raw aluminum... like the scratch is under the gold. Things just don't seem... kosher...

The overall group seems to believe that this is legitimate. When it comes to that kind of collecting I have no idea how much NIP kits are worth.That said noone seems to think that it's worth what is being asked, even if it's one a few gold tub 10t's ever spotted.

Other than the fact that it was in a kit, the only thing special about it is the gold nose plate. Everything else is/was commonly available stuff.

Even if it is real, I wouldn't pay anywhere remotely close to that price.

Either way it would have value in the collector market for being what it is, notoriety could give it more value than originality.

Probably hasn't sold because of the shipping price... $87.49 is awfully steep :lol:
