Also, the motorcycle term used to describe this system's condition, is
"ridden hard and put up wet".

Compare to $5000 asking for the full running PDP 11/34 which was listed
(and I think is still wanting for a bid) recently.


For $5000 I would even consider selling some of my PDP-11's
The best offer I ever had was $100 for everything (about 10
working systems) minus the heavy parts that even the scrapyard
usually won't take.
