A 5.00 Omega in beautiful shape! A new belt and emptying a FULL bag and it was ready to go.

Looks MUCH better than the pic shows, I cant seem to get enough light in the living room to take a descent picture. Here it is with the Dyson I found.

This will look better! I took it in the kitchen, im not into uprights much, but this does lift the rugs off the floor!

A beauty Hans.  One of my favorites.  That was the model I moved in with when I moved in with my partner in 1976.  He should have known when I moved the Kirby in before my clothes!

Congratulations!  You were really lucky to find that Omega in such good shape.  Most of the ones I see look like they've were found in an archeological dig.

Hans, congratulations on your Kirby find there! Whats even more amazing to me, is how shiny the metal is on your Kirby. You almost always see them tarnished up & in need of a polish job.

Enjoy your new find....
