The DC05 Clear.
« on: November 23, 2014, 02:04:49 PM »
Somewhere in the world a DC05 Clear exists, similar to the DC02 Clear. And last night on eBay I bought a Turbo Brush to match the DC05 Clear. I bought it to match my DC02 Clear and can't wait till it arrives!! Anyone shed anymore light on this rare machine??

I don't think I've ever seen one. Hope that helps...

We have some clear chassis and other bits brand new I think. I do think they are Motorhead ones.

Our Motor-head was purple, I've never seen a clear one! Picture would be nice.

Well I'll be



If the plastic is as brittle as it is on my DC03 Clear, it might explain why theirs not many about.

Isn't it cool???

Shame I only have the turbo brush but still it does exsist.

Somehow I think the DC05 would be better than the DC02/03 plastic. My DC02 Clear has so many cracks in so many places but I love it all the same.

Will post pics of the turbo brush when it arrives.

Oh right, I definitely  wasn't thinking of that one.

This is the one that sprung to mind when you said clear

That's the standard Motor-head, fantastic machine.

My mate has one, he is a vacuum collector and got his DC05 clear off ebay, the seller hardly used and it is 110 volts. It has an electronic hose like the motorhead
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.

BTW there were only sold in France, Japan and I think another country in Europe

If Its 110v it must be from Japan, Europe uses 240v.

That clear dc05 is beautiful! I was correct though, I've never seen one!
