I would so love this thing!!!... I really enjoy dropping by this site by the way! I love you obscure eye, looking at the stuff on here sometimes makes me yearn for a lottery win, if only to get a bigger house to put stuff in! :-)cheers!
Thanks for the kind words! There's so much great stuff out there that's available on eBay or with dealers for a short while and then go back into private collections never to be seen again. I started doing this blog as sort of a visual archive of some of this stuff. I'm glad I've found some people who really appreciate it.Keep following!Thanks,Joey.
I am looking to buy an antique Michelin Air Compressor. Do you have any leads?
Right now I don't :(
Yea!Another one!Thanks for the tip!
does any one know how much these sell for? because i have one,and as its the centenary coming up i would like to know.
I think the last two I've seen have been in the $500 - $700 range. It all depends on condition too obviously.
i have one on uk ebay now and the bidding has been frantic so far
I'll have one for salewww.jhobrouwer.nl

They just showed one on A&E Storage Wars Texas Season 1 episode 1
Ah, I'm going to have to check it out. Thanks.
Ok guys, The real value of the small 12v compressor is in US$ : From 1500 to 3000 $ depending of the condition , and i mean is it is repainted the value comes down to 200 or 250$ not more. In his original condition (including the tube in the mouth , without any rust and still in working condition would worth up to 3000$ US$ .
They had one on american restoration.... They said its worth 1500 un restored and anywhere from 4500 to 5000 restored.... I think they do a good job, but from the pics you have of the original, the resto they did was not very accurate.
@Luke,Yeah, I was really disappointed by the job they did on American Restoration. It's a philosophical argument on original patina vs. complete restoration. I prefer original patina, but there's something to be said about at least some restoration.
I just finished watching the show myself . I think they ruined the overall value of the compressor when they " restored " it. The customer was happy though!
If you are still looking for a countertop tyre compressor, a Mr Bibendum Michelin Man 1920's, then my father in law is selling his at auction on 19th October and you can bid over the internet. If this link doesn't work you can find it on busby.co.uk and Lot 8 of the car sale.

Hey, Nice post regarding Air Compressor thanks for posting...
What's the valeau of an 1920's Michelin compressor , the large model , in restored condition ?
I actually have the Michelin man from the compressor, unfortunately I don't have the compressor itself. Still a interesting piece, I've had a lot of people tried to buy it off of me over the years.
Thanks for writing about it! Thanks for the article! It was a lot of good info. I am researching air composer.
Thanks for sharing such a useful information with us …. I like the way you describe the post with us. Many thanks
