Someone selling this locally... but no idea how it would work!
It's a foot activated drop weight. Very similar to a Serrano.
Yep, our shop had one next to the Serrano...busted hydraulic? brake meant we had to 'e-a-s-e' the weight down to apply tension. Quite the one-legged workout!!!
That one looks really rough, BTW. Check the action on the pedal/weight arm. I'd be a bit surprised if the 'brake' action worked. Still, might be fun to mess with if the clamps work OK.
Oh gosh! I see that's a 'wing nut' twist on the clamp. Yikes! It'll work, but there's a reason we don't see that kind of clamp on current, quality machines. It'll do WONDERS for tennis elbow!
The limitation would likely be the mounting hardware as it may not work for head size over 90". And the clamps could be very slow but you may be able to get different ones?
I just got a Serrano and love it but it has upgraded mounts and clamps so it will work for modern frames.
So this could be worth it if fully functional and if it will mount modern size frames.
