I'm new to the Applefritter forums, and I thought I'd post my goal on this website to see if anyone can help me out.
I am an aspiring Apple Lisa collector and restorer. Earlier this year, I bought 3 Lisa 2s, and now one of them works (I also own 3 ProFile drives, 1 keyboard, 1 Lisa mouse, and a non-working SunRem 20MB hard drive). The other two are suffering from corrosion damage, and are still getting fixed.
My ultimate goal is to convert one of my Lisa 2's back to a Lisa 1 (two of my Lisa 2s were originally Lisa 1s). I realize this is a very difficult endeavor, but I want to make it work nevertheless. My upgraded Lisa 1s are fairly low serial number models (#668 and #730), and I would like to bring another Lisa 1 back into the Apple collecting world.
I am looking for these items for my Lisa collection, working or non-working:
Keyboards and Mice
Boxes for anything Lisa
I am also looking for the materials to downgrade a Lisa 2 back to a Lisa 1, namely:
Lisa 1 faceplates
Twiggy drives and disks (Even one drive would do, working or not)
A set of "D" ROMs
If anyone has any of these parts, or any other parts that pertain to the Apple Lisa that they want to sell, please contact me. I'm looking forward to possibly reviving a Lisa 1, and I would be thrilled to add one to my collection. Also, once my other Lisa 2s are fixed, they will be sold on eBay; keep an eye out.
Please contact me with any items you may have, and a ballpark number you're thinking for the price. I'll respond to any offers and try to be fair. I look forward to doing business with some of you!
