I attended the VFC Swap meet. Some poor fellow had to unload about 50 C64s his wife no longer wanted around after a recent move. They were originally $10 each, but by 11:30am I was able to snag 5 of them for $6 each.

I rolled into the show late and missed the good Amiga deals. A mint A1000 sold at a great price earlier in the day. By the time I got there all that was left was an Amiga 2000 upgraded with a TerribleFire for $600 :-(

I was not in the market for another CRT, but there were lots of CRT deals to be had. There was even a 1942 monitor for $75 (tested and working). These go for like $300 on eBay.

Nice! And here I was thinking I was special for scoring a lovely breadbin for only AUD 20 in raffle tickets a few months ago!

Both C64C models work just fine, absolutely no faults! I thought one had a bad CIA chip, but then I realized I just had completely forgotten to plug in the joystick I was testing :lol:

All three bread bins are dead. Two are total black screens, one shows garbage and plays an odd sound through the monitor.

Hopefully I can cobble a couple of working machines out of these three.

If you test those Commodore 64 computers, make sure they work, recap them, and install heat-sinks on the chips that get hot, you should be able to sell each one for around $350. That is what I sell C64 computers for. So, you will get 5 times $350. eBay will keep around $50 per sale. So, you will get at least $300 per computer.

We don't need help inflating the prices on eBay they are already too high. But looking through the sold I don't see very many selling for that high...

Then you actually did not look hard enough. I just looked and there are over 12 Commodore 64 computers that sold on eBay within the past 90 days for $280 to $350, with most of them averaging around $300.

How about an update? How much did you end up getting for these on eBay?
