Annual troll for Ohio Scientific

I have a nice homebrew C1 superboard setup, with wooden sides and a sheet
metal case. User has added a "break" switch, baud rate toggle switch,
1Mhz/2Mhz switch, some other doodads. That's what the OSI machines were all
about :) I've also got a manual or two lying around.
Also I have a bareboard superboard which has had all chips removed, so it's
obviously dead dead.
My friend has an original, almost pristine, C1P disk system which he'll
never part with. He has lots of software, too.
I know of a C1P system, boxed, for sale at around US$1000 - out of my
league, I'm afraid.
