We have some DC02 new cyclones that I may list. Perhaps people are rebuilding DC02 machines as well.

You know my opinion on the DC01 people, I say do it, they are getting rare in non discoloured and battered form these days. :(

I was eyeing up a decent looking blue one we have today actually, might be an idea to do a rarer one.

I havent seen a De Stijl DC01 for ages.

Yes, by blue one I meant the Arctic Solo one.

Was that the one I sent you or has that long gone? :icon_nod:

I have a Dyson DC01 Destijl :) It's very good
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

I think you should list the decent early spares you have. There are a lot of people out there making these machines as mint as they can then storing them away. I'm doing it, several people here are doing it, as are you! Would be great to get hard to get stuff again. If I ever get my dc03 working properly I'll need both new filters and possibly the little clear cap that sits on the brushroll housing

I think you should list the decent early spares you have.

The only thing we haven't got is fixed soleplates and most De Stijl stuff (sold the last red cleaner head the other day). Motors are thin on the ground, as are HEPA bin flaps. I think everything else we have used or new. But very little genuine new any more.

We have quite a lot of DC03 stuff. Still got new genuine motors and clutches for example. Maybe a dozen "as is" machines. Short of white and clear model stuff.

I did contemplate doing a mint DC02 as well, especially as we have some new cyclones. But I was never too keen on those.

According to the seller, this DC01 is "hardly used"
Well the stickers are nice and not sunbleached ;D

Found one now. Wrong side of town, but there is a restaurant we like near there so I have an excuse to go if we win it.  :chuckle:

Not a De Stijl though. Anyone have a link?
