Just revisiting this thread.Came across this photo of MV and other marques tyre pumps. Apparently they are all original pumps (not reproductions which are available).
Hey Rob, sorry for asking such a fool question ( as I clearly am one ), but where does the actual name "emmevi" come form originally, is it specific to that model or someone's name ?Just revisiting this thread.
I reckon that first 6 pumps are original and the later 3 are reproductions.
The top pump is an original, the middle two are excellent reproductions & the bottom one is a so-so reproduction out of Germany.
Difference between the repo & original hose
Handle of the Original reads : 'Silca - esportazione Milano 0 italia."
Not a silly question at all Donsy.Hey Rob, sorry for asking such a fool question ( as I clearly am one ), but where does the actual name "emmevi" come form originally, is it specific to that model or someone's name ?
:laughing: Actually, I reckon that should become the official way of doing it nowIt's surprising how many are unaware of where emmevi comes from, If I'm in a 'silly' mood I get the person to say emmevi with gusto, including hand gestures, as if they were a passionate Italian. Hopefully they will get it eventually.
Bought it, thanks. Will go on my 150rs which doesn't have oneThere's an original no. 6 pump available here for worldwide shipping:
