I have recently (well about a year ago) rescued a Kaypro Robie from the final day of an estate liquidation. The unit is in fantastic cosmetic condition and even boots off a pair of boot disks. I'd like to restore this unit, for it's a fantastic piece. However, it's missing it's keyboard. I've have saved searches on e-bay now for a year and no such thing has come up. I've also been searching craigslist in all the surrounding states. I'd also really like to be able to back up the boot disks, but I know that it's going to be very difficult to find media for this beauty. It has some very odd floppy drives in it that were way advanced for the era and never caught on. So, can anyone help me locate a Robie keyboard and at least two blank disks for this machine? In addition to my gratitude, you'll also get cash money from me for them. Any pointers or offers would be appreciated.
