I have several I've read with a 1541 and a homemade PeeCee parallel port
cable.  Some are originals, some are copies, some are file copies.  Most
of them came from Earthrise, the local Commodore dealer, when they went
bust (me and a friend threw some money at them and drove off with the
*entire* contents of the service department - little PET stuff by then,
but it's where I got my new 64KB memory boards, a couple of main boards,
etc... no entire units in the back by the time 1992 rolled around).

I have them as .d64 images.  I'm fairly certain that I did an entire
disk read, track by track, not a file backup.

I'll be glad to send them along.
