Just wondering how much a pair of Specialized Ground Controls are worth? I believe they're late '80s, with the yellow sidewall decal.

Sidewalls are decent, if a little grubby (not run them through the washing machine). Tread is overall pretty good, minimal cracking at the knob bases if any, and a lot of the moulding nibs are still present.

Aaaargh don’t put them through the washing machine with harsh detergents - sure fire way to knock more plasticisers out of the compound. Better warm water in the bath and soap, with a nail brush. Boring but better.
