My uncle ran into an odometer which we suspect is from an early 50's Faro Basso. See picture.
From the documentation we've found, we can see
A) it's from the early years
cool smiley only a few hundred were manufactured.

I ask the collective wisdom of the forum: is this worth putting on ebay? Does it have value?

Hi Bruno,
I am Davide from Italy.
This odo is made exactly for vespa 1951-1952. And it has a value, around 200-300€ (in Italy, I don't know in other places). The value increases if restored.
I'm interested.

Kindly,
Davide

Davide,

thank you for the information.

I was planning on putting it on Ebay, but Ebay is being a total bitch about letting me sell internationally. And I don't like their fees.

So I'll post all the specifics here first, we'll keep Ebay as Plan B.

I'll attach pictures, but this is what I know:
- the unit is still factory sealed: one of the screws has a washer and tin or lead poured into it
- it works! When a cable is inserted, the needle moves and the odometer counts
- rubber grommets included
- San Christoforo emblem included
- mounting hardware included, one nut might not be the original one
- glass looks fine

Looking at http://www.bpost.be/site/nl/residential/parcels/bpackworldlight.html ,
it looks like shipping it would cost 13.05€ to Europe, 21.75€ to the rest of the world.


I would like to find a passionate new owner for this classic part. Make me a reasonable offer.
