SOLD - BBC B, Disk Drive and games on tape for sale!

Post by alex16cole » Wed May 20, 2020 8:39 am

SOLD! (on eBay). Thanks to all for support in helping me to work out pricing etc. Peace!

Hi folks. My Dad bought us a Beeb many years ago and it's finally time to sell it. It was a bit sick a while back (Power Output/DRAM) but a lovely Beeb veterinary clinic (lol) took it in and nursed it back to health. So I'm selling:

BBC B Microcomputer - Serial number on back = KELTEK 08-ANB01-3 007520 and it says "(c) 1981 Registered Design" on the back. The loading screen says "BBC Computer 32K Acorn DFS" It has some yellowing of the case. It worked fine a year ago last time I used it!

Games on tape: Repton Thru Time, Gisburne's Castle, League Challenge, Diamond Mine, Spooksville, Space Caverns, Zarn, Atom Smask (3 games: Autosmash, Reaction tester, Knockout)

Price: any fair offer - er I can't respond to private messages yet so if you are interested you'll have to PM me your email.

2 photos being attached later! Sorry haven't posted at all on this forum: joined 5 years ago to find vet. Peace, Alex

Hi, welcome.

Can you update your post with photographs please? And can you provide any more information about the BBC itself? (Issue Number, Extra ROMs/Rom boards (if any). What version of DFS?

Whereabouts are you based? Is collection an option (if social distancing is applied, obviously).

Note that as you are a new user you won't be able to respond to any PMs (you need a minimum of 25 posts before PM privileges are enabled). However, interested parties can PM you with their contact details and you could reply via email.

Oo and also Original BBC B manual Nov 1983 and advanced manual 1987 for sale. Front and rear pictures attached, the light is making the original book back look much worse than it is. Condition fair to good. All pages there! Enjoy, Alex C

£50 is what I'm selling it for! It's a BBC B by the way, case slightly yellowed, originally had disk drive with it too so is compatible with disk drive. Thanks for any interest!

Alex - people should not be approaching directly via PM - they should be posting in the thread that they're interested first and asking questions in the thread. Please be aware that it is worth more than that.

The New Advanced User Guide can go for a few tens of pounds itself - can't exactly remember how much I've paid for my copies in the past, but they are worth a few bob (or have been).
