Really enjoying watching this. Any idea of who produced the bandits on the right of the ABCD machine? I can see a hi-top in the distance but those curvy bandits look interesting.

The picture was used on their flyers, of which I still have a copy and we discussed the machines 8 years ago - they are Merkurs. !THUMBS!
