    I used one of these with my Bernina machine when I was learning to quilt. I bought mine from Allbrands online, new I think it was $699, I have seen them on ebay, used, for in the $300 range.
    I also bought the handles you show. They cost new $169, seperate from the frame. The handles with speed regulator are machine specific, you can only use them with the brand of machine they were made for because they connect to the sewing machine.

    You could probably sell the handles seperatly, they were sought after and worked well.

    I purchased the same frame this summer. At present these frames are selling between
    $200-$250 as they are less in demand considering that most people want the longarms
    which requiring heavier duty frames. The handles are at a premium and can easily be sold
    separately. Originally they sold for $169 and I last saw them at $100 not long ago.
    Lucky me I got a set on ebay really cheap for $30- they are the same as yours with the one
    button, the more expensive ones that were newer ( not made anymore ) had another button
    on the other handly that was a thread cutter. SO that is why the extra cost.
