1995 TA (Typewriters Works) Gabriele Cyclo Serial # 003897 1995 TA (Typewriters Works) Gabriele Cyclo typewriter, Serial # 003897 Kewin Sanfridsson's 1995 TA (Typewriters Works) Gabriele Cyclo typewriter. 2024-04-18 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kewin Sanfridsson: 1995 TA (Typewriters Works) Gabriele Cyclo Serial # 003897 Here we got what I think is my newest typewriter both in terms of acquiring and age. The keyboard is at least dated Nov 1995 so the whole typewriter cannot be any older. There is also a serial number on the keyboard and it is that serial number I am counting this machine as having. I think it's made in Germany due to the sticker on the main circuit board which have two abbreviations printed on it that seems to be in German if Google is telling me the truth. "Baugr. = Baugruppe = Component Group/Module?" and "Fa.-Nr. = Fertigungsauftragsnummer = Production Order Number?" (I do not by any means say this is true as I maybe know at my best 10 German words or so but it seems pretty possible.) Triumph and Adler was both German from the beginning right? But. Yeah I am not going to go into the history of Triumph-Adler as I'm quite new to it and haven't looked into it enough.

Well what I can tell for sure is what I think of this lovely machine! It looks pretty typical for a late 20th century typewriter I guess. But it doesn't mean it looks bad by any means. I love the shape of it, just enough edges and curves to feel new and fresh even after 29 years. It looks to be same typewriter as the Gabriele 100 but with a darker and also cooler colour scheme! It came in this black and white version with lovely purple keycap legions so beautiful! But it did also come in black and turquoise with dark blue keycap legions also a beautiful colour scheme. It's quite intuitive and easy to understand how to use it with the colour of the MOD key legion matching the colour of legions on the keys with a third option for symbols. It was not so to bad disassembling it either for my temporary repair of it. But as you can see on the last to images there is two broken of keys, the CODE key and the TAB key but I will be on the look out for them. And the paper release knob has also been broken and is missing a piece, this one I will also be on the lookout for or try to get it 3D printed.

Hi my name is Kewin and I'm a 23 years old from Sweden. I have a few hobbies like drawing and playing guitar but I do also like myself some project here and there which is where my interest in typewriters fits in. I have always collected things through my life but I did not expect typewriters to be my next big passion in collecting. I started collecting typewriters in the beginning of 2022 and so far I have 52 of them (3 of which is currently disassembled) . I find it really enjoyable to pickup a typewriter at a thrift store/second hand and starting to clean it up and get it to a working condition to the best of my ability and knowledge. (Excuse all the dog hairs in my pictures, I do actually try to remove the hair before taking the pictures. xD) Cheers!
