Purchased this on a whim while visiting Verona in 2015. Used regularly as my “at work” machine - until covid lockdowns meant permanent WKFH. The steam tip has been replaced and is currently a single-hole type. Also included in the price is a Motta 52mm tamp (much better than the tacky plastic one which came with it).
Asking price £99
A couple of things to note:
it could do with new piston seals as it currently leaks slightly (However, once it warms up and everything expands the leaking stops)
there is slight movement on the base. It looks like you need a specialised key to tighten it, but it doesn’t affect the operation of the machine
the pressurising assembly sometimes “sticks” - nothing a small knock with the tamper doesn’t fix. More an annoyance than a serious problem!
I have the original packaging so am happy to send out via courier (at your cost and risk). Also happy to meet up if you are within a 30 minute drive of Egham close to M3, M4 and M25 west).
