With greetings from Boekelo. That sounds like a cry on a postcard from 1950, right?
In this case it was the result of a search for a petrol crane for a - meanwhile also officially classic - Moto Guzzi III. The tap is operated by a flexible shaft between the tap and the rotary knob on the side cover. It is - and as an Italo enthusiast you can say that in a tender way - a typical Italian construction. The system is broken. And because that happens often, many Cali IIIs now live with a gas tap that has been put 'on reserve' somewhere in their life.
Whoever saves what has what
The the New Old Stock has been around for ages. The batch of new Guzzi Cali III faucets that once manifested had… A wrong size. But whoever seeks it finds: An e-mail late in the evening to Boekelo was answered the following day: “Yes, we still have one. But I also have a good, used flexible axle. And you write that there is the problem. Is it smart to only send the axle in terms of costs?
That was really smart!
