The Typewriter Database 1983 IBM Personal Typewriter Serial # 6126 110020086 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Clark Hinson: 1983 IBM Personal Typewriter Serial # 6126 110020086 This Selectric has a 11" platen (8.5" writing line) and uses 88-character elements. It uses the 210 (bicycle) ribbon. Available in only one color as shown. It is basically a 11" Selectric II with Correction, except for the ribbon. Rumor has it this model was introduced as a way to use up IBM's huge stockpile of Selectric II parts, although some parts are specific to this model (frame, for example). This was the last non-electronic Selectric model.

I love mechanical things and have tinkered with manual and electric typewriters since my teens. I have always been fascinated by the IBM Selectric, but it was later in life that I finally got my hands on one to explore. I learned to repair/restore them and suddenly I have several of them. I don't really consider myself a collector, but rather a restorer. I enjoy bringing old machines back to usable condition and then pass them on to other people to use and enjoy.
