I'm a brit living in Switzerland and having recently moved house and now having a bit more space, I decided to blow the dust of some of my old Commodore gear. Surprised to see my original 64 still works, despite being 27 years old!
I have 8 or 9 64's, a few VIC's and two SX-64's (or will have soon, when I retreive them from my parents loft at xmas.) Also have a C16, Plus 4 and an early Amiga 1000. Much of this stuff I acquired around 86/87 when I was lucky enough to actually work at Commodore's plant in Corby during my school holidays.
The serial number on my original 64 is quite a low one, WGB 2790 and has one of the first PAL boards, the KU-14194HB. It's been through the wars though, not many of the original chips survive, only the basic rom and the VIC are from 82. I also have a home made kernal switcher and ubiquitous reset switch installed.
I also dug out a box with hundreds of chips, much of them for various C= machines. I seem to have around 10 Vic2 chips for C128's - I have no memory as to why - I'm not sure I even owned a 128. Anyone need one?
I have around 20 eproms which were my homebrew kernals usually used for cracking games. I need to get my old eprom programmer up and running - there may be some gems in there somewhere. Seem to recall I have a c64 kernal with a M/C monitor crowbarred into it somehow!
Also found my 1541's, both with 3/4 boards, one with the Alps and the other with the much better newtronics mechanisms. They're also modded with WP bypasses and device number switches.
Really looking forward to getting back into this stuff at the age of 39
Would love to hear from any other C= users from Switzerland, although be warned, my German is terrible!
