Hi, I was given this machine recently.  It was in the kitchen of a restaurant a friend built.  I am opening a bicycle shop and wanted a machine for the shop.  I had no idea if it worked and took it to a local repair shop.  He was a bit surprised by the machine as it has an internal reservoir.  The reservoir itself is missing but there is clearly a slot for one.  Michaelo has one for an 85 and we are seeing if it will fit.  The machine is 220v and everyone thinks it is a bit of a one off.  

Sorry I don't have a better photo, I took these when we picked it up then it went straight to the repair shop and the site is pretty picky about photos.

A lot of single group commercial and prosumer machines have an internal tank, both of my commercials do.

As David said, how is it that we can help you?

I guess I am looking for some reassurance that while this machine seems somewhat rare in that it is a 95 with an internal tank I am not going to be looking at terrible difficulty getting maintenance parts down the road.  According to the repairman it can also be plumbed into an external water line.  I have spent several hours seaching the interweb and have not seen one mention of a 95 Pract-A with an internal tank so my concern was that this is a machine someone cobbled together.
