An Autumn Weekend


I bought this one a few months ago. The group had been very damaged by a previous owner. So before going home waiting to be completely redone I fully sanded and polished and made ​​rechrome.

One lent to me now an original tool from Faema to remove the sleeve of the group. So I did, cleaned and reassemble.

I snapped on this machine for its architecture. A group of Mercurio with a horizontal boiler is all new to me. And this coupling of the group to the boiler is so awesome

 I won’t restore it now, I have to finish restoration of the Zenith Express and then to work on Mercurio.  I had this weekend to remove asbestos,  treat rust to stop etc… And in momentum I thought it would be a good idea remove old screws before time makes things worse…

But now at home and I love it 🙂
