Frankenstein in Machinery

I discovered that my "64" Olympia SG3 which spend 7 years in a backyard, isn't a "64", or not the carriage at least.
The machine carries two different serial numbers.
The other one is from 1967 (the carriage) It is a mystery.


  1. This is normal. The carriages were designed to be changed and exchanged depending on need. As such they were serialed differently. It may actually be the original that came with the machine, but it is hard to say.

    1. Interesting. Yes, Olympia SG models had the removable carriage. The SG1's a bit more clear with the knobs on the side then the SG3, however, I have another SG3, and that seems to be a different fit.
