Hi guys, I have a chrome 2 group Francis! Francis! X2 for sale. Most likely the only one for sale in the USA. As you can see it's in sweet condition and looks amazing, the right temp gauge doesn't work and I haven't tried to fix it (just not a big deal to me). Shipping is available, as the machine is fairly big but probably weighs less than 30 pounds. I also have an Ascaso Innova conical doser grinder with stepless adjustment, and its silver finish would be a great compliment to this machine. It can be added for $150. I also have a Rancilio Rocky doser that's currently dialed in for this machine that I'd sell for $175.

Email me at benpiff at gmail if you have questions. I've never heard clear instructions about how to link to Picasa, which seems to work easily on every other forum and site, but I'll try.

I'm not the a fan of F!F!, but that thing looks f*ck'ng fantastic in a 2 group.  If I had the space I would buy it just for the design.  If you can't find a buyer at your asking price, local or otherwise, drop me a line.  It would be a fascinating experiment to mod one group with a PID and an adjustable OPV and whatever else might improve the shot quality, and leave the other one plain (I am assuming that this has a dedicated mini boiler and pump on each group).

Good luck with the sale, I'm embarrassed at how much I like the that thing.

My dreams exactly! Silvia wands would also be an awesome upgrade. But I'm heavy on project equipment, and short on space and time. Sigh, I don't expect to find another one of these any time soon.

Bump, happy to ship at this point and combine with a grinder! And picture her with a pair of these Silvia wands. I have one, and it's a perfect fit.

Hi, its an attractive machine, but I don't have the space. Might be interested in a grinder on its' own though if you wanted to sell one.

I sent you an email about this machine.  I am interested in buying so maybe we can work something out.
