Take pictures of the PCB as mounted, maybe if we post them (I can post at c128) the owner would show up some day with a story. *From:* email@example.com [mailto: firstname.lastname@example.org] *On Behalf Of *Steve Gray *Sent:* Tuesday, December 20, 2011 12:35 PM *To:* email@example.com *Subject:* Re: Commodore 128 prototypes Michal, I'd definately say hack job. I it were a real D128 I think commodore would have used the normal B-series or P500 power supply and made the ports line up with existing port openings. I think a D128 would probably use the CBM-II keyboard. When the D128 changed to be C64 compatible then they would have to switch to a C64-compatible layout and drop the 6509 CPU, so you never know what might exist during the transition, but judging by the photos I'd say this is just standard C128 motherboard and keyboard in a CBM-II case. Interesting but not commodore-built.

This is what I have: http://i44.tinypic.com/2d8g9ol.jpg http://i44.tinypic.com/2cfultt.jpg No motherboard pics unfortunately :-( On the second pic, you can see some condensers through the user port, they look consistent with a standard C128 motherboard. You can also see that it has a dedicated backplane for C128 connectors, so some care was taken in preparing this machine - but why? To add more confusion, it has a German keyboard. I didn't realize that a C128 keyboard would fit into the 610 case so nicely ;-) Regards, Michau.
