Found my endgame (FC980C 30g domes in a Norbauer Veracity Steel). Need Orange Realforce R1 keycaps to complete it.
Looking for the Realforce R1 Orange DyeSub Keycap set. Specifically, model # XF0100KT5 with the 6u spacebar and 1.5u and 1u mods.
Alternately, just the 6u spacebar from either XF0100KT5 or the blank orange XF0100KT5N set works. (I have the R2 US and R2 JP sets to cover everything else besides the spacebar)
Willing to trade almost anything else I have or Paypal to get the orange R1 keycaps.
norbauer Ghost of Christmas Future Mark II w/ 87u breakout (willing to do with or without including the actual 87u keyboard)
Norbaforce Mark I Tactical Black (willing to do with or without including the actual 87u keyboard)

sorry, I meant stock FC980C “controller”, not PCB, didn’t mean to get your hopes up (I replaced my FC980C with a hasu, as you already deduced, I imagine)
no worries! thx for clarifying
Color is not very close, and it’s curved like a banana, but at least the profile is right on this
kbdfans set I picked up from mechanicalkeyboards.com.
Still on the hunt for the OG Realforce R1 Orange!
I hope you’re able to find this! I tried to do some searching but could not pull up any hits for the sets you’re looking for… It might be possible to commission a keycap to be manufactured for you, I have heard good things about signature plastics (
link). Might be worth a shot, but probably expensive.
Thanks! I haven’t heard of SP making Topre stem, but it might be worth asking them. I poked around a little and found this
mount style doc on their site. I had no idea they made ML, KT or GZ mount!

FWIW, I would be ecstatic to buy a new FC980C and trade the PCB (or the whole keyboard!) for the R1 caps!
TIL SP does Key Tronic mount keycaps.
