    Did they replace the chairs because I don’t recall Riblet making bail-type chairs in 1965

      Riblet has always manufactured bail-type chairs. In the 60s and 70s, however, many resorts used center pole chairs (because they were cheaper I would guess). In 1985 or so, the design of their bail chairs changed from having vertical side tubes to having a slight bend in the middle.

        Quite a number of Riblets with the post 1985 design are actually center-poles that have been retrofitted.
