These are pretty rare, but each year more and more appear. I am guessing that there are at least 30 out there whereas last year if you asked me I would have guessed 10 max. I had three, but I traded one away a few months ago. The 8088 co-processors were sold in Europe more so that the US, Handic of Sweeden made a spreadsheet for the BX model http://vintagecomputer.net/commodore/bx700/handic/ The system is under-powered when the 8088 is installed and performance is inconsistent. Check your voltages. If you can get it to disk, here is MS DOS 1.25 for the CBM-II with 8088 http://vintagecomputer.net/commodore/8088_co-processor/MSDOS1.25/ (let me know if it works).
