Royal Safari IV, circa 1990

This is the newest typewriter I own, and a great machine to use (especially if you like Silver-Reeds). It was made in Bulgaria, from a Japanese design, and given an American name. (The three nameplates that were on the machine fell off; the glue was good enough to discolor the plastic, but bad enough that the nameplates fell off...). The only advertising I could find for it was circa 1990.

  1. Hi, I saw you posted awhile back about a Royal Century from I think 1969. I have the same typewriter and the carriage won't move due to (I think) the fact that the plastic string came off the spring barrel (flywheel), if that is what it's called. I was hoping you might be able to share a photo of what that flywheel looks like on yours with the back of the machine exposed. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.
