Another reason is because of their collective value to those who enjoy them for their vintage aspects. And because of their durable construction, they last for an extremely long time.
The older models are true machined types of reels and operate suprisingly very smoothly for reels that only contain a single ball bearing as opposed to more modern day reels that are packed with 4, 5, 6 or so ball bearings.

You might also be able to find some of their lures, but those seem to be scarcely rare overseas outside of Europe.
