Recent huge Amiga 500 + pickup and help required.

Hi all,

I've recently had a huge pickup of Amiga 500 + hardware and software, about which I've made a video on YouTube (link below). There is a problem with the computer in that the battery leaked and caused 'some' damage that is, I am told, possibly restorable. If anybody could advise me on this, it would be much appreciated )

Best regards

Steve

Welcome!
Crazy video!

I have an A500+ motherboard for sale if you want it. 13 shipped to you.
AND I have an A500 at my parents house in Sacriston - 15 if you want to pick it up.

500 please :o)

Hi there,

Yes, Sacriston is only a few miles from me, I'd be interested in the 500, what condition is it in? Can you hold it till mid next month (readies are a bit short at the mo) and if it's in a reasonable condition, I shall buy it off you )

Yep it can hold. It is only the A500, no PSU or Mouse. Condition is OK.

HI Steve, will give my Dad a shout. If it suits him, we can sort an evening out.

We can use PM here on EAB instead of email...
