C64 Hardware

This section contains all the different Commodore 64 computers that I have or try to track down. The goal is to refurbish the hardware to reassemble the originals as close as possible. However, whenever more modern options can be added to prolong the expected lifespan of the hardware or simply add functionality to the gear, I most often choose to do so. This could be by adding heat sinks to the larger ICs (SID, VIC-II, PLA, MPU), replacing the electrolytic capacitors and the voltage regulators or by exchanging the capacitor at C38 with a larger one to make the RESTORE key work better. Thus, I simply try to preserve the original hardware without compromising the ‘soul’ of the machines.

This is to my knowledge the complete list of PCB motherboards (including prototype boards) that were produced by Commodore. Active links are machines that I have in my collection:
