    #1 3 years ago

    I just picked up a Chicago Coin Motorcycle Arcade game. It looks complete except for a missing side access door and only two pieces of cabinet have water damage that need replacing. The discs are in great shape, the glass has flaking on the red paint but otherwise not bad.
    It powers up, lights up, but it stays in game over. I can manually move many relays and get the motors to operate and lights to work.if I hold up the game over relay the discs spin, the fan comes on sound card starts working but the Relay buzzes and gets hot. If you ignore photo 1 ( I don't know how to delete it) and look at #2 you can see the wired are a mess. Does anyone have a picture of how it should be?
    Or any ideas on where to look.

    Thanks, I found those earlier but looking at them again the picture I want is right there. Sometimes you just need a point in the right direction.

    You have a lot of work ahead of you. But it will be worth it when you are done.
    chk out pinrepair.com, lots of good info there.
    you will have to attack it just like a pinball,
    tighten all switch stacks, clean/adjust switches, clean/lube step units, then, the electronic part...fun fun fun!

    I just picked up a 1974 Chicago Coin Motorcycle and It's missing the topper.
    I'm looking for detailed dimensions and pictures of the topper so I can build my own.
    Also, what type motor can I use for the blower?

    I have a topper for mine and am willing to get measurements for you and motor details ,what I need is the plexiglass with picture that goes with the topper ,can it be scanned and downloaded to make a copy ?

    That's my plan, I know someone that reproduces artwork for arcade games but I have to get ahold of the topper artwork so he can scan it.
    If I'm successful, I would share the plans & scans with others. There are a lot of Motorcycle games with missing toppers.
    Not looking to reproduce toppers or make money from it, I just want one to complete my game.
