    This is the Bernina 830 Record classic machine sold in the 1970's. At that time it was the top of the line machine and was all metal gears and not computerized. I bought mine in 1976 causing my brand new husband to throw a huge fit because he thought all that money ($1000) should have been used on mortgage payments. The pictured machine shows it in the more expensive elevator desk and it appears to be in really good shape (mine has some pin scratches and a little paint wearing off on the bed of the machine). This is a great machine and I only bought a new Janome 6500 because I wanted a larger harp. These machines really hold their value and often are sold in the $500 to $700 range. My local dealer offered me $450 for mine sight unseen as he has a waiting list (Mennonites) for this model. I'd grab it if I were you!

    I think it is a 30 record something. Maybe 730 or 830 record??? Not identical to my 930 record, but close.

    Bernina Record 830. That is a steal. I'd grab that up in a second! They are going on Ebay for over $500 without cabinet.

    OH heck..I wish I was there...this is a STEAL...just that cabinet went for $300 the other day on ebay and the machine can fetch up to $1,200 around Christmas time!

    The most important thing to have is the manual and foot pedal...they are hard to replace!

    I have B.930 from 1983 , I meet a lady who had a 830 She stated she would never get rid of it. It was considered the work-horse of B. Mine is also still going strong after 28 yrs. Tinker

    I just bought one from craigslist a week ago and it came with the red case. It is the same machine, Bernina 830 record. I paid 350 for it and I know I got a great deal.
    Look it up on ebay, they go from 800 to 1200 easily.
    Nice machine that's for sure!

    Incredible bargain. An 830 or a 930. The picture which shows the types of stitches is too blurry to tell how many stitch types there are.

    Grab it if you can.

    Cheers, K
