You could even expand the userport in a similar way, using a 74165
serial-to-parallel converter :)

If the cluster bus is using a serial approach, a 74165 (serial-to-parallel) 
converter could even be used to include PETs in the network, replacing
the broken VIA SR input :)

There has been going on a discussion for a 6502-based serial bus protocol
on .Although I haven't really followed it to the end
in all details, I think it might be interesting to at least read it.
