    Beolit 707

    I picked up this Beolit 707 a while ago -

     

    It is in fantastic condition overall with a complete aerial etc, but I would like to service it and get it as near to 'new' condition as possible.

    Any tips? I also need a better speaker as the original has been replaced with one that doesn't match up to the original mountings.

    Also, the bottom plate (with the writing on) is missing, so I wondered how I could go about sourcing a replacement? Anyone got the dimensions or a template I could have a copy of?

     

    Thanks in advance

    Llewelyn

    There's a guy on eBay by the name of jepsen57 who sells nothing but restored Beolits.  I'd try to pick his brain.

    I can probably help with the base plate. PM me your address. The speaker is going to be harder to source.

    Message sent! Thanks Stonk!

    I had a look at the eBay seller but he didn't seem to have any refurbished radios, just ones that are in good condition - I might send him a message if I am struggling. Thanks for the link :)

    Stonk! An amzing fit Laughing

    A thousand thanks! It's not in too bad shape considering it is the bottom part of a 30+ year old portable radio!

    I owe you big style for this!

    Beggars can't be choosers my dear old chap! 

    Thanks to Peter and Nigel I am now the proud owner of an original spec black baseplate. In the meantime, the silver one donated to me by Stonk was far better than no baseplate Wink

    Re: Beolit 707

    Very glad you got it all original. These Beolit's are worth it!

    I must say that Trigi's (Peter) non selfish atitude to give away a very rare and much sort after speaker is remarkable. What a stunningly nice fellowBeer
