    $1000 rocket

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Anyone here get this Rocket MOZZAFIATO TYPE V. Was at graysonline in Qld.. sold for $899.
    But, it looks like it was dropped on its drip tray. Still, would have been worth a look.

    They have a white Oscar and a Venus (or something) in single groups, both in nsw. Oscar looks newish.

    $1000 rocket

    One owner. Little old lady driver. Driven to church on Sundays. Shiny stainless body. Dropped only once. :-)

    The grays online ad practically writes itself.

    One of the weaknesses of that machine: the drip tray is cantilevered off the front of the main body, very easily damaged but fairly easy to fix too.

    I figured that it would need a full strip, and frame repair. Im sure the stainless would have copped a beating too.
    But as a project, somebody could end up with a pretty nice machine.

    No longer and not for a long time. It's part of the chassis and you'd need to go back to chassis to repair it. Possible, but a major panel beating job.

    Thanks, I'd assumed it was the same as the old ECM design but evidently they've improved it.

    This is the current chassis/frame. The sub frame was originally bolted on. Now it is spot welded. IMG_4077.jpg
