This Columbia BY of 1910 arrived to our workshop with a completely inadequate Swiss engine. Finding a correct motor turned out to be a very difficult task since this BY is a rare variant without the characteristic front knob that is usually in the front of the box and which acts as a regulator / brake. Instead, this model has a motor that combines the regulator / brake on a lever that comes out from under the plate. Finally we locate the motor but without the necessary linkage so it has been necessary to replicate it.
The top board will require a deep restoration work to erase all the damages of previous unfortunate interventions.
