Bear Custom Viking Takedown

Postby CZenner » Mon Nov 15, 2010 8:43 am

I need help. My brother "inherited" this bow. I believe it to be a 1973 C riser Bear takedown target model. He wants to sell it to me but I have no idea of the value. Any thoughts?

Haven't got a clue as to the value but it sure is a sweet looking target bow!!

Same here, I don't have a clue but that sure is a beautiful bow.

I’ve only seen one of those in person. They sure are nice to look at. IIRC, it was most likely made in 71 and 72, and was probably available up to about 74, 75, until dealers ran out of all of them.

Unfortunately, the C riser was the least sought after. Good ones will fetch around $400. to $600. The uniqueness of the Blue one may add some to the value, and the condition looks exceptional too. That’s all just a guess, and if you find a collector who “needs” it, the sky may be the limit. ;)

The Victor Custom Viking was made in `73-`74. In `75 the same bow was just called the Victor custom. Not listed in catalogs after `75. These are the Blue ones.
