- Apr 4, 2009A DB25 male to DB25 male wired straight through does the trick. I believe you will need to shave down the ears on the plug the computer side to get a good fit. There are some ribbon cable replacements (and some OEM) on ebay frequently, but you can likely build one for less than $10 buying all new parts.
Was this the one listed on NJ craiglist for the past 10 days or so? The (listed) price was pretty fair, I almost called about it - but I have too many irons in the fire already to pick up another piece of gear. Those SX64 keyboards can be finicky, there are several reference sites out there that describe how to clean them - time well spent.

Subject: [midatlanticretro] Commodore 64 SX
I just picked up a Commodore 64 SX from someone through Craigslist. The problem is that it didn't come with a keyboard cable. Anyone know where I can locate one or how to make one ? It is a DB 25 to DB 25, Male to Male. I know I can use a printer cable and cut off the ends, but I want to see if I can do something a bit neater.
