    Default Pimp a Bruni Brunella

    Tis the season to pimp red vintage levers, welcome to the world of the svelte looking Bruni Brunella

    A quick read on these is available here on Fransesco's great site, http://www.francescoceccarelli.eu/m_bruni_eng.htm

    Based on the info this is a third generation and in theory has a thermostat and is somewhere between 1965 and 1973

    as it only came yesterday I haven't had a chance to open it up yet but first look shows it to be an open boiler type with the piston sitting directly in the middle of the water heater.

    Its missing the power light and the drip tray and looks like it will need a tool making to get it apart, but wheres the fun in an easy life.

    Anything without a pressurised basket boiler & steam wand would make a La Pav look complicated!
    Looking forward to seeing the restoration.

    "The Brunella is aesthetically very attractive and has an expression reminiscent of the monolithic statues of Easter Island." (http://www.francescoceccarelli.eu/m_bruni_eng.htm)

    ...not only do they share a fair bit of expression, but also their fate it seems.

    Haha, apparently the base heats up along with everything else... in , Doug of Orphan Espresso suggests the Bruni doubles as a hand warmer

    Orphan espresso - that will be me in the not to distant future , but with a fake beard and American accent

    moving on swiftly - I took the base plate off earlier quickly to reveal -

    no thermostat and 9 / 67 as the year of manufacture, so it looks as though its a Mk 2.5 then

    still 1967 it gives the opportunity for some good pimping music...
