SOLD - Gaggia Classic: Boxed in VGC, descaled, new seals, Silvia steam wand, OPV mod

Recommended Posts

As per the title, for sale here is a Gaggia Classic (pre-Phillips takeover) in very good condition.

 

Work done this week:

 

  • Group head seal replaced
  • Boiler seal replaced
  • Boiler descaled
  • OPV mod (OPV adjusted to 10 bar - ideal pressure for brewing espresso)
  • Brand new Rancilio Silvia steam wand fitted - this is seen as a sensible & must-have upgrade for the Gaggia Classic to produce decent microfoam

 

The chassis in in VGC, i've given it a quick polish with Brasso this evening - with a little more effort it will be spotless! There are a few marks that will easily polish out with a bit of elbowgrease. There are no dents or deep scratches. It's an Italian model with the larger (and more reliable solenoid)

 

Sold with the following:

 

  • Unpressurised single & double baskets
  • Original Gaggia tamper
  • Instruction manual
  • Power cable
  • Portafilter
  • All in the original box

Martin - If still for sale can you consider a deal on this?.

 

I need a replacement Classic for a Family member. I have a Classic which has just blown up, (see Gaggia Sub section) but otherwise in excellent condition with Silvia Wand. I have well maintained this Machine with a regular monthly descale.

 

How about swapping this machine with yours. You pay the postage to send your Classic to me & I pay the postage sending my Classic to you. Would use your packaging to return mine. Would think £125 would be fair with you ending up with a Machine that needs attention but at a very good price.

 

What do you think?

Hi Ron, that sounds good to me.

 

I would be happy to send you mine (minus accessories) and you keep your accessories and I keep mine.

 

That works with me. Earliest that I can now post is Monday. It would be via DPD and next day delivery. (Given up on UPS after the delays with the grinder :) )
