    Default 2x Defective Commodore 1541 drive's (for parts)

    I have for sale two 1541 drive's that power on but dont work (didn't attempt any repairs, no time).
    The one without label on the back powers on with a blinking red drive led.
    The otherone powers on normally but gives a file not found error.
    Both need a clean but look quite good.

    Asking 10 euro's for both or 6 euro each, will give priority to selling both (ow and + postage ofcourse)

    I might be interested. I've put on my peril-sensitive sunglasses. How much would it cost to ship these to Manchester, UK?

    @ seko

    The thing with 1541s is that they are heavy, so the shipping costs could be a lot more than the cost of the drives. I've been there before and let's see what Sundown79 comes back with before we start jumping the gun. Also, I don't think either motherboard is 100% working in these drives, they are being sold as faulty, so I'm not sure how this helps your project.

    FWIW, have done some reps on them in the past, and the majority was suffering from dodgy bridge rectifiers..
