Yeah, sounds reasonable. However I still have an option :) I have an 1541 with faulty mechanics, but otherwise it seems to work (it has got even parallel cable connector wired/soldered in). So, I can replace the actual drive itself (somehow) with the actual signals from/towards the head, the step motor, etc with some "emulation" of that, but the original CPU/VIA/etc can remain, also the original case of the drive, so it can be stylish :) Maybe that does not need as powerful uC as my first idea, since CPU/VIA/RAM/ROM of the real drive remain.
