    I'd say rare - think I've only seen one other . If you're going to find them NZ or Australia are going to be the places as the related 77 & 76 seem to crop up there. I also got a batch of spares from NZ

    nice find
    The tank and starter are the same as my 77 apart from the nickle plate. The burners are far more conventional though.

    That's the kind of suitcase I'm looking for!!! Very cool! That fuel tank looks really sweet. Milsom is a lucky owner. Were there any flame shots??

    Thanks,

    Hello,
    Interesting way the fuel lines bend around. Nice looking example. Thanks for posting the pics. Not that I need a reason to buy another stove ! :p

    Wonderful stove!!!

    I have a 77 but no case. Wish I could find these stoves at those centers.

    Cheers,

    Jeff

    Yep it sure is nice, I am not sure if it has been fettled and fired yet. It is in good hands and will no doubt be fired up at some stage.

    Looks like it's in really good condition. The tank looks immaculate.

    Give us flame shots!

    Apparently the stove did not take too much at all to get it up and running.

    Those burners are tapered. Didnt see that in the earlier pics.
