There not "done", they are genuine new old stock from Best Electronics. 4160STe badges are $5 a go+ shipping. Only problem is the $20 minimum spend, but if you visit that site and only spend $20 you have done bloody well!!

The site is a mess, and only a fraction of Bradleys stock is listed, If you want something that is not listed send him an email, a really helpful guy.

I can highly reccomend the wiztronics 64k 800xl memory expansion, the 5200 gold rebuilt sticks, the re-built cx 40 sticks the new in box 65xe etc etc etc

I would'ent mind a few of those 4160 badges but I know for a fact I'll spend far to much on that site.

Picked my Atari Track Ball up from the post depo this morning. Not tested it yet but does look in new condition so I assume it works.

I did'nt no it was around the same size as the Atari Lynx.

Bought myself a boxed 800xl and brand new old stock boxed 1050 disk drive all for £25. I also bought Kay a BBC B with disk drive and games from retro clinic, she also bought a load of Sega  Mark III games from Witchfinder and a few other bits.

Also got a load of stuff free, Boxed C64 Tape drive and TAC-2 joystick from Starshipuk, loads (and I mine loads) of disks from Muguk and some other bits from other people.

Thanks to everyone

Scarily, I only bought 2 items and both were for RCM (and in the posession of imnogeek until November or whenever he's passing the lock-up) :) 

1) Bought a Vic-20 with a 'gimp mask' (as the vendor referred to it) which came with a selection of originals and some ahem .. "blank C15 cassettes" plus

2) a job lot of cassette tapes from Flicky - who doesn't like his Retro Sarkozy tag, so Vinny's going to be unhappy :)

The rest of the money, as far as I can tell, was spent on a ticket for Boyo's 40th (yes, he's now that famous he has to charge for his birthday bash!), and ... beer (which wasn't that good as it was chemically created Boddingtons!)

.. oh and some expensive cheeseburger & chips which leads me to mention 'Boa Constrictor' but I shan't name names :)

I got a lot of freebies which, together with all of the above purchases, just about crammed into the Rinoatron (who's a very good driver and only wanted to ram someone else off the road once over the weekend) :)

I also got given Vinny's RCM jumper .. any offers on this? :)
