Yes, I can see the pictures perfectly. Google gave a passable
translation from the German, too :) - a nice, tidy mod.

They were very common in Australia after about 1985. My C128 has a similar one, (cream
in colour, and higher rated).
It's not the original one - my original PSU for my Commodore 64 was
a brick, and fully potted (not like the "doorstop" power supply in
your thread)

( ) shows an
almost identical unit.
The original unit failed many years ago, going high-voltage, putting out 7.5V. (I only
noticed it had failed because it caused a loud hum in the sound!!).
