Restored Vintage Typewriters by Kasbah Moderne

I am not sure if I will ever type on these things again but
they have become collective objects that look classic decorative and
sentimentally cool as my home decorative accents.
I would love to buy these polish gold finish.

The Ghost
by Kasbah Mod
Inside, this typewriter is a Smith-Corona 5-Series, a line widely celebrated for its quietness and low finger-fatigue—plus a special translucent roller. Outside, its body is custom-plated with hot-rod-quality chrome, a material Smith-Corona never saw coming. The Ghost’s surface reflects its surroundings, a haunting reminder of the 5-series’ iconic form and of a crucial part of any good writing.
 $455 Corona 4 by Kasbah Mod
The Smith Corona 4-Bank, introduced in 1924, was the first mainstream, widely promoted 4-bank typewriter. It is an industrial design classic and legend suggests that the world's typewriting community grew 50 times in population after the Corona's 4-Bank's elegant introduction. This classic edition features a glossy green paint job.

Royal Model 10  by Kasbah Mod
Tall, upright and monstrous, the Royal Desktop Model 10 was a dystopian beast of industrial era engineering when it first hit the market 1914.
