200A and 202 reproduction
frames back
in stock.

I new when I saw this 202 that it was a bit of a Frankie with parts cannibalized but it had "that globe", a ceramic burner and even with a broken cleaner lever would be a fun project.  

202 as found.jpeg 
It looked to have a mid-'50 burner frame and was certainly not stainless.

I decided to use one of the repo stainless frames as it would at least be "stainless".

202 frame clean.jpeg 
New label and a few other bits and pieces. It runs great and is in keeping with its original 9-61 build.

Nice!  You brought that one back for sure!
Nice save! Makes you wonder how a later steel frame and much older straightline globe ended up on a 202... Funny ðŸ˜
