One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.

Hello - thanks  in advance for your help & suggestions
Old Skynasaur Kite - Unsure of model but it looks similar to a "Help -Skynasaur Circa 1985" post that I found on this forum.
Dimensions - upper spreader 13.5", Lower spreader(s) 41",  Leading Edge 42",  Spine (This piece is missing - actually I'm assuming a piece went here) 19.5".  Has a couple pieces "Center T " (?) and some bungie cord - this kite also has a yellow plastic nock at trailing edge spine of kite. Not sure how this all works together.  Kite has standoffs.  Embarrassed to say I did fly this kite yrs and yrs ago but don't remember the setup. 

Question(s) -  Is this kite worth fixing or are more modern kites significantly better?  Live in Denver CO along Foothills - winter high winds, chinooks,  erratic winds, calm. hardly anything steady. I suspect this kite needs fairly strong winds to fly.  Is buying a kite to fly in lite winds a strategy?
Question(s) - If I fix it I assume I only need to figure out how long the Spine is and buy something of similar diameter to other pieces. 
Question(s) -  Does someone have a pdf instruction set for this kite?

Thanks - I do have a more modern delta - Prism Nexus that I just today ordered a new lower spreader for.  Last flown in NC 5 years ago that we bought while staying on the beach during vacation. What a place to fly. Hit the beach too hard one too many times.  Newbie.

thanks for your help and advice,

Bob, Denver CO
