My other treadles (New Home, Domestic, Eldredge) are all quieter but I think that is because of the wooden pitman arms.

Okay as promised here is the 66 I painted yesterday. I did this machine for Donna (Rumbols) and it will be a hand crank.

It is a "Black Cherry" (base coat Black and a Red Pearl mid coat). In the light the pearl jumps out at you while the rest of the machine looks black. I shot a few bikes in this color and everyone loved them. In fact one bike took the "Best Paint" trophy home at a major indoor show.

Thanks Anne, this photo of it was taken in direct sunlight so you could see the Pearl really well. But normally it will look black until the light hits it just right.

Wowza, Billy! That one is the prettiest I've seen!! I can see why a Best Paint would be given. My son has a Harley and I know if he saw this he'd want a paint job! And he's in Tennessee! Now that I'm thinking about it...he's riding today to Memphis!

Judy ~ Sounds like you put a lot of work into restoring your Necchi but well worth the efforts. I like the before and after pic's. It amazes me to see the difference. Good job and thank you for posting the pics.

Elsie ~ You're one lucky girl. Beautiful machines. I hoping someone will be as lucky when my family parts with my machines (after I pass!). I am glad they went to a good home!

Billy ~ Your paint jobs are so stunning. That is all I'm going to say... other then... You are one talented man!

Lastly, I found this quote the other day and thought of VSMS:

The sewing machine joins what the scissors have cut asunder, plus whatever else comes in its path. ~Mason Cooley

billy... now you've done it. I cave. Can you do the same but with a hunter green or deep purple Pearl mid coat? 201-2? I'm pm'in you! lol...

Just got on the board today, and waded through 9 pages of great machine 'finds'! Wow... congrats to all those who picked up great machines.

Let's see...
Yes, get the Vesta...
Nice lotus decals on that 66-1 bclamp machine. And the cabinet is AWESOME.
Love that cool looking, Necchie (sp) machine with the fold down bed extension. I've been starting to read up on the Necchie's... there's been a bunch of Supernovas and such up for sale in my neck of the woods...

All of you... are the best, most addictive 'entertainment' I have. And I mean that as a compliment and with gratitude for all the advice, teaching/learning, and knowledge. We learn together!

oh, I'm making banana bread. Come on over, the coffee's 'on'!
