I troll eBay from time to time (have bought olympia creminas from the site both were poorly packaged for shipping and arrived slightly damaged however they operated flawlessly)
and noticed two rebuilt conti levers from the 1950's
both look very cool to me
I have no connection nor do I know the seller
just wondering if anyone is familiar with conti levers
I also thought it would be a good heads up for lever freaks
as I am relatively new to this site I'm not certain
if it's ok to mention machines for sale on eBay
if improper form I apologize
and again I don't know the seller or the true condition of the machines

I know the seller.  He's nice, a little flaky, but on the up and up.  I purchased an Oly Club from him a couple months ago and he drove it down from SF to LA while visiting some friends on the way.  The condition was slightly worse than the optimistic wording of the description (acceptable seeing that I paid a lot less when the final auction winner balked).  I haven't seen these machines in person, so I can't vouch for their condition or their price, just that the seller is OK despite not accepting Paypal.

Very nice machines, but little in the way of parts availability.Doug at Orphan espresso can help with seals.Very little to go wrong with them.Simple dipper fed design delivering a large 2oz+ shot.Price on auction seems ok, if they are fully restored. Not sure why he keeps listing them under 'vintage car parts' section?
