    This caught my eye and I know nothing about this manufacturer or the value of this item. It's posted for $80, is it worth it? Seller says it works. I am very tempted. Just because it's green!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, I don't know anything about it- you could google it. But it's very cool looking!

    A Japanese clone of the Singer 15. There are those who feel that the Japanese clones are better made than the machine they copied. That's a very pretty one. The price of a vintage machine? Whatever it's worth to you. They seem to be increasing in price. I'd offer less. You can go up, but you can't go down.

    Looks like a Bel Air Precision (Royal?) I recently saw. I've learned the specs were very precise on the Japanese clones so they could capture some of the market after WWII. It is a clone of the Singer 15 - good machine for piecing, quilting. I could still kick myself that I passed on the one I saw in a cabinet for only $45.00.
    I'd offer a bit less & see if they'll accept.

    I wouldn't pay $80. But, make a lower offer. It's cute!

    I was thinking about offering $50, I have a hard time offering less than the seller wants. I don't want to offend anyone. Would $50 be ok to start?
