Bussoz, La Girouette

Postby watling » Thu Jan 18, 2018 5:52 pm

Hello members

I have a wallgame by Bussoz, La Girouette that I am trying to restore to its former glory. See pics. I have seen Supershotbattymambos film of his machine Pin Up Girls that has helped me. I do miss a part or two to my machine. One is the disc with three colours. Is there anyone, please, who can help me with a picture or drawing with measurements of the missing parts on my machine and how it connects with the payout mech in the back?
Best regards,
Watling

Welcome there,

Although I do have one of these it is in storage, so below is a picture from one at the Coventry auction. Hope this helps.

It is a large image and should expand by clicking on it.

No problem. Let me know if you need more. Nice to see a Girouette in its original cabinet.

Hi

I have a Pin Up Girl that is exactly the same as the one in the Museum, apart from the young ladies. It is a Bussoz and the mechanism no longer works (damaged in a home move) but easily repairable for someone who knows what they are doing. I am interested in having it repaired and thought someone here might be able to help.

I attach a photo for your interest. I would be grateful to discuss this with someone. Thanks in advance

Hi Chris and welcome to the forum.
You're very lucky to have such a machine, are you incredibly handsome and married to Olivia Newton John (1978 version) as well?

I don't imagine there are too many collectors out there who own one for comparison, however I imagine if it's complete I'd expect most with a mechanical bent (ooh errr missus!) should be able to understand it. Especially if it was working before and you're right in your diagnosis of it being damaged during a house move.

What might help you in your search is if you pinpoint where you are in the world. Although we have many members around the place many of us are well past the age of voting and consider a jaunt to the corner shop to get a quarter of Werthers akin to an expedition.
I for example am in Lincoln (I'm pretty sure)
