    Hi,

    wow, this is new to me, never seen in Italy, I'm jelaus. For my small knoweledge the only thing I can say is that I've seen that pre heating cup, tap and enameled top hood with rivets in that position only on a solex 200.

    Good find btw, I want it :)

    ps

    Where did you find it?

    Cheers,

    Nicola

    A little update for this 3 stars.
    Nobody seems to know this brand :-k

    The fettling was not very difficult. A good cleaning, one or two blades of glass for the "indian" globe and a new screw for the manometer to be modified.
    here it is :

    Great job Michel, I really like the "indian" globe style :) You're lucky with these italian lantern, do you have also a solex 200 with red hood and rapid pre heater, don't you? If you compare them do you think that they come from the same factory?

    Cheers,

    Nicola

    Hi Nicola
    Yes I own this red hat SOlex, and these are sisters without doubt, but I have absolutely no information
    on this brand.
    Could be the same factory, but ...???????
