1959 Groma Kolibri Serial # 647960 1959 Groma Kolibri typewriter, Serial # 647960 Geir Kihle Hanssen's 1959 Groma Kolibri typewriter. 2021-04-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geir Kihle Hanssen: 1959 Groma Kolibri Serial # 647960 [This machine has been sold on and is no longer in my personal collection]. An extremely pretty typewriter with the classic tell-tale paint wound by the return arm after many a hit from a careless line change. A good typer, though for me personally not what I prefer in terms of typing feel. Snappy and easy going, but perhaps too easy going? Interesting machine to be sure.

I am a Norwegian fellow who enjoys tinkering and fixing up typewriters. One day I decided I wanted a typewriter to write letters on. I bought one that turned out not to work. I got annoyed and decided I should be able to figure out what was wrong and fix it. I did it, but the rush of successfully mending such an intricate machine was like a drug. I wanted more. I decided I would try to buy non-functioning, but pretty machines, fix them and sell them before repeating the process. What I didn't expect was that I would fall in love with the machines I fix so now I suddenly find myself a bit of a collector.
