    Whats a fair price for one of these with no major issues? Is it a good game? It disappeared from the local arcade so I cant try it unfortunately.

    Just played one last night at a fellow pinsider. Great steve Ritchie game with a great story behind it. Somewhat simple but incredibly fun. Sounds are great, music event you get into the getaway is awesome. I would love to own one. Playfield seems to be trashed usually on all of them on the upper part

    I have one and mine is the opposite. The playfield is really really nice, but the cabinet is 5/10. I like it alot, but you should only own this if you have other machines. It is not a deep machine, so maybe get this pin and a deep one.

    Same with mine, cab was pretty bad but field was flawless. I sold it for 1K.

    I'd think 1200-1500 if cabinet & playfield are very nice. Not sure if they made all of these with diamond plated playfield but might be why the playfield survives better than the cabinet. Seems that fading on the cabinet is pretty typical since the lettering is red and fades much faster. This is just from what I've seen of them out in the wild.. wouldn't mind having one some day.

    I just picked one up wednesday for the low teens its really nice. The seller gave me a good deal, I think anything in the 1.3-1.7k range is good for this machine.

    Good game, I agree if you have a small collection it can get a little old but it is fast and fun. $1200-1600 depending on condition would be fair.

    Oh and some common issues are the beacon and the supercharger, beacon sometimes is plugged in to the wrong header, I have seen this a lot and the supercharger can have acceleration problems, uses magnets to speed up the ball.

    It was my first pin and love it. It's not deep but always fun for a quick game. Easy and affordable DMD game as a first game.

    Typical issues;
    Saucer wear - get a cliffy.
    Rear ramp wear on the lift mechanism. I think Pinbits sells a replacement
    Supercharger magnet and opto issues. Not difficult to repair.
    Fun because it is so simple and fast. Great music. Fitting but easy video mode. Cab Fade. Not a good stand alone pin, though.

    Fun game. I thought I would grow tired of it quickly, but it has surprising staying power in my collection. The cabinet always fades and the rear ramp has a flap that often breaks (yes, pinbits makes a replacement).

    Just realized after re reading the title this is High Speed II. I was referring to the original High Speed!

    The supercharger sign was broken on mine but it was hard to spot. I think that happens often. Pinbits sells a steel reinforcement that will work whether it's broken or not, and it's not too expensive.

    The ball eject (?) into the shooter lane screams for a Cliffy on mine. Same for the saucer. I think these are typical wear spots.

    The left inlane/outlane divider may be broken. I've seen pictures of one that was broken, and I almost broke mine when disassembling the left slingshot.

    The "outhole runway ball guide with baffle" was broken on mine. I don't know if that happens a lot - probably not.

    I expect to have at least $2500 plus work in mine before I'm completely happy with it.

    They range from $1600-2300 depending on quality.

    This estimate might seem high but it's correct - just ran 90 day sales data (eBay) and that's what they are getting bid up to.

    Yes, and they are excellent. I do have them, just didn't find the time to get the job done yet.
