    You need to be logged in to ebay to see the completed listing. Ampex AG-440 (B) Portable Reel-to-Reel with Extras NICE - eBay (item 300498556120 end time Dec-05-10 18:11:04 PST)

    I just love the road cases. Wish I could find one for my spare transport and future electronics. Look at the price it went for.

    huh, spare belt..

    I'm thinking I might build a road case for mine. I'll probably start another thread for suggestions.

    In that case .. LOL The extra transport I have is just sitting there in a chair in the basement. I hate to have it sitting there like that.
