Originally conceived as a Kickstarter campaign, this "PORT OPEN" framework was designed as a result of this. "PORT OPEN" refers to the openings already formed in the framework that line up with the port openings in the Commodore 64c case. Three of these port openings are set up with heatsets to accept industry standard panel cables (as can be found in limited quantities in our shop). All required screws are included with this product.
With this 3D printed framework kit, you can do a non-destructive conversion of your Commodore 64c (kickstarter case) computer into a Commodore Pi computer.
This framework is designed to fit into a Kickstarter Commodore 64 64c slim style case, utilizing the original factory mounting points used by the original Commodore 64 motherboard. The kit is designed to accept your Raspberry Pi B+ or Pi 2 computer, and the "Individual Computers" Reyrah v2 keyboard/joystick interface board.
With this kit, you can convert your Commodore 64 into a fully functional Raspberry Pi computer (with the addition of the above mentioned accessories).
Contrary to the original standard frame (also available in our shop), this adapter kit has openings already formed for the rear ports, allowing you simply install and run all the interface cables without damaging your Commodore 64 case.
Not having to alter your original case allows you to eventually return your Commodore back to its original form if you'd like, and makes for a clean and seamless Raspberry Pi installation into a Commodore 64c case.
This kit includes the custom designed internal framework including black oxide screws and stainless steel washers with brass heatset inserts pressed into the framework to attach your Raspberry Pi B+, Pi 2 or Pi 3. On the right, you simply attach the Keyrah v2 (that you'll need to have obtained from icomp.de) to allow you to interface the original Commodore 64 keyboard to the Raspberry Pi. Also included are four custom washers that you'll use along with the original screws that held the motherboard down to hold the provided framework to the inside of your Commodore 64.
Furthermore also included in this kit are the keyboard brackets and USB plate to clean up the USB port gap to the case.
This case requires a 1.5mm allen wrench. If you don't already own one, you can include one with your order. Check out the tools section of the site.
Cables are not included in this item. You receive the plastic framework with all screws and heatsets installed! Cables are available separately through our shop (or on ebay direct from China).
