Power rocker trem help please.

I recently purchased a Roadstar 2 and it is in great shape apart from the power rocker trem which needs replacing.

I have searched this site and it seems there are limited options.

Im not overly keen on another power rocker or kahler, and i am trying to avoid major surgery.

I am trying to do the research for suitable after market parts, but i cant find any online manuals for this trem system, and im also unsure on how to measure the trem spacing. (from which two points do you measure?)

Can anyone help me please? i was hoping there maybe another alternative, gotoh etc?

Thanks in advance.

I don't think there are any alternative options unfortunately.

Yeah, sadly your best bet is to find an '86 body on ebay. They're routed for an Edge trem. Maybe you can find one with the trem still in it??

Cheers.

Mine is an 85, would the neck be a straight swap?
