The machine is from February 1970 – so a 1st gen without pressure stat model. Please read more about how this machine works before buying it.
The idea behind our fully upgraded and serviced / refurbished machines is that you don’t need to service it or add custom parts by yourself anymore.
It is ready to go and it does not need any investment or work done for years to come.
We do offer warranty for the labor that we do and the new parts installed on the machine.
Old parts are left on the machine to keep it as original as possible.
As we said, the machine is fully upgraded with our finest custom made parts available right now on our website for this generation, like:
1. Custom made piston pressure kit (PPK).
2. Custom made naked portafilter.
3. Single hole custom made steam tip.
4. Custom made drip tray.
5. Stainless steel sight glass cover.
6. Boiler pressure gauge.
Base color is the original one in this case.
We always want to keep as many original parts as we can so to preserve the original look and feel, but in the same time bring this classic to a new era.
As i like to point out, it’s easy to service and change old parts to new, but it’s hard to restore and keep the original look!
So we try to keep everything we can in original state. Parts that cannot perform well or cannot be restored, are replaced immediately.
We don’t sell new machines. This is a used machine, with possible signs of wear on the boiler or group head, but this is what vintage means for us.
This machine is of course 52 year old !

God bless us all.
