    Default WTB: IBM PC AT 5170 Motherboard Type 1

    Hi,

    I'm currently in the process of restoring an early IBM 5170 back to it's original specs which includes finding a Type 1 5170 Motherboard which fits the era it was originally produced. This is the one major piece I'm currently missing, I started with just the chassis and PSU and have been slowly picking up parts here and there.

    Does anyone have one of these for sale? Happy to source it from anywhere I can find it as I have a freight forwarder both in the US and Europe I can use if you don't want to go through the hassle of shipping internationally.

    Thanks

    I have a board from a messy pull that has some missing drams and some scratches.

    Can you do minor repairs?

    No idea what a genuine 5170 board pull should sell for

    Yes I'm happy to do any repairs that are needed, that's not a problem.

    I don't know how much of a guide this is but a Type 1 sold recently on eBay for US $137.00. But that was in good working condition and being just the one example it's hard to get an idea if that's normal.

    Personally though I would probably be looking to pay around US $50 or more for a non working one.

    If your interesting in selling let me know. I'd be interested in seeing any pictures of it if possible.
