    Anyone wanna make me an offer I can't refuse???

    Tore it down and polished every part on the playfield like I always do.
    Rebuilt flippers including coils.
    Replaced all 3 pop coils (just to make sure it was extra lively)
    New sleeves on all other coils.
    Replaced many of the standup targets.
    New pinbits clear plastics.
    Full Cointaker LED kit inculding flashers.
    Added the police flashers seen in the video.
    The DMD has 1 line out at the very bottom, but this is barely noticable.
    Plays nice and fast!

    Here is a link to pics after I shopped it about 2 months ago or so:

    Great game. Wish you lived closer to Wisconsin. I'd seriously consider buying it.

    I'm sure you won't have much trouble moving it though...

    I might consider trades, too... I am just looking for a change in the gameroom.

    Good to know Gorilla. Keep me in mind for it if you do decide to sell. Next year's outing may be perfect timing since I should have more room by then if all goes according to plan.

    I am trying to work out a no-haggle price right now... carry the one... divide the remainder by 3.14, I hate long division!


    2 years, 7 months ago

    Ok, I think I have decided the absolute lowest super-firm extra-reasonable no-haggle take it or leave it Pinside price I can go on HS2 is $1600. Lets just pretend that I posted it at $1800 and you talked me down 200 bucks and you feel really good about it. We will just skip past all of that here on the forum I believe it is a steal at that price considering its condition and the fact that it has over $200 worth of cointakers installed and the playfield is about as clean as they come.

    Black Rose lives near me, and he has been kind enough to help out with preparing it for shipping if required.

    If anyone needs any additional pics or information, just let me know.

    No time soon for sure!!! It's too new to me. I actually just finished a satisfying 473,000,000 5 ball game... to make my new 4th place score. I have been playing it a LOT! The game started out with short ball times, but I am starting to get the hang of it now.

    Sounds like you're already mastered it Shane! You'll be bored soon enough ha. I want first dibs if and when you do want to flip out of it, as long as I don't buy one before that time arrives!

    After watching the video that BR did of you playing it I think you are INSANE to want to
    trade/sell that pin. DUDE, it's absolutely a bad-ass pin. The playfield lights, the flashers,
    the overall condition of the pin. It's a fantastic looking pin.

    You have 4 pins in your collection, all of them are really great pins. That's a good start on a
    great set of pins. If you do sell it I'm gonna have to start calling you BR jr.

    BUT....if you're tired of it and ready to see it get gone, I understand. I hope it goes to
    a good home, a pinsider home.

    Good Luck, as sweet as a pin it is, should be gone within a month. Does BR's banker man have one? Maybe check with BR and see if his banker guy will buy it from you. He's definitely got
    the cash for pins from what I've heard.

    This is only an estimate from my previous experiences. I had NAVL in mind. The took about 12 days to get me from New York to Iowa. There was an extra 5 days where the pin sat less than 100 miles from me but they weren't delivering to my area until...well, when they did. It was really hard to not go get it!

    They do zip to zip quotes though. Only takes a couple of minutes on the phone... http://www.stidelivers.com/StiTools/FreeQuote.aspx

    I noticed "The Dude" has Rollergames on his wishlist. This "Dude" is planning on selling his RG to make room for the Getaway. Interested?

    Shanetastic - any chance I could get you to snap a couple of pictures of the lifting mechanism at the rear of the pin that lifts the ramp up and down to lock balls? Mine has an issue where it doesn't always go up all the way and sometimes you'll get a ball stuck underneath until it fires the coil searching for the ball. I'm wondering if pictures of another pin might help me figure out what is wrong. Also, does yours shoot each ball all the way around the freeway at the start, or does the ball often drop down into the pop bumpers? Thanks!

    leeb how much was shipping for you? it was $400 just to SD here so i passed on it although looks like a great pin

    How much you thinking of selling it for? I'm trying to save up for my next super pin right now. That would be a over 700 mile drive one way so probably would need to ship it which could make it hard to make a deal.


    2 years, 7 months ago

    Pdx, mine would only shoot all the way around about 1/4 of the time until I rebuilt the auto plunger. Now its abut 90% that it works. I will take some pics of that lift later if no one else does. Leds are in for Congo..gotta do a little work first


    2 years, 7 months ago
    #

    I've got the plunger adjusted to where it will make it around 99.9% of the time. You have to adjust the metal guide at the end of the shooter lane.

    I will take a photo of the lifting mechanism tomorrow.


    2 years, 7 months ago
    #

    Leeb18509, Just so you know, my plunger and kickback are adjusted assuming the machine incline is at the 2nd line on the bubble level. If you put it on a different pitch, you will likely have to adjust the guides a bit to get the ball going exactly where it is supposed to.

    The plunger should always feed the ball around to the upper flipper and the kickback should usually shoot the ball into the tunnel.

    Michelle at STI/NAVL quoted me $416. It's a lot for sure, but I feel like it will be worth it in the end for the pin I'm getting.

    No problem Shane. It will be nice to finally play one that's set up right as opposed to that routed one I was telling you about. So many burnt out GI bulbs you can't see what's going on half the time....

    Wow. Im reading this thread thinking -this is the way to buy a pin. Shanetastic has performed a real shop job and even put in led's. Its looks great and he asked a reasonable price. Leeb18509 your getting a killer machine. Enjoy!


    2 years, 7 months ago

    Totally agreed. I even had a bit of luck yesterday, met a local guy here with some contacts for Fedex Freight. Quoted me $282, down from $416 to ship it here. With BR's excellent packing skills I'm sure it will get here just fine.
