    There is a $50 obo non-working Flying Trapeze 5 hours away that may be missing parts but the seller is going to text me better and more photos of it.

    I've looked at it on IPDB and done a web search. Pinside search returned 0 results. There seems to be little information about this game online.

    It looks like the backglass has trapeze figures that light up during the game.

    Do any of you know more about this game?

    Thanks in advance,
    Bruce

    Quoted from DirtFlipper:

    Pre-flipper title

    I thought about posting this in the non flipper thread here.

    Quoted from DirtFlipper:

    the legs and lockdown bar would be suitable for use on flipper woodrails, so definitely worth $50 for those parts alone

    The seller said one leg is missing and the lock bar is missing from the photo. I'll find out more when they text me some photos.

    Quoted from Darcy:

    IPDB quote, 'Last Flipperless pin made by Gottlieb'.

    Quoted from presqueisle:

    That's significant then, even as a pre-flipper.

    Yup, I saw that too. May be worth getting this game for that reason too.

    Quoted from blownfuse:

    I have a Gottlieb Flying Trapeze in my collection of curve tops.

    Would love to see photos of it!

    All four legs and inside parts are there.

    The cab front is broken off and the BG shot.

    I'm waiting to find out if the lockdown bar, backbox/coin doors and bumper caps are there too.

    The seller says it's all there.

    Will most likely pick it up this Friday.

    It was sold. Hope the buyer makes good use of the game.

    I wasn't looking forward to the long drive but would have done it to make sure something good was done with that game.

    Quoted from SteveFury:

    Looks like it would be a lot of time and a lot of $ to get that one right.

    That too. And driving 10 hours in one day isn't very appealing to me.

    Quoted from Darcy:

    keep searching if you are looking for a wood rail they do turn up.

    I have two woodrails so I'm not really searching for one but saw that one and felt it should go to a good home because there seem to be so few of them from what I can see.

    I do like woodrails though. Would buy a nice one if it was in my area and the price was right.
