For sale: Centaur

Added: May 11th, 2019 Ended: June 19th, 2019
Condition: Partially restored (almost original)

Item description

Partially Restored Centaur (perhaps more technically a Resurrected Centaur) with the following:

CPR Gold + Playfield recently installed. This is a one-off that was made as an employee appreciation. It is as original except the inserts are starred. It was also cleared with extra care as it was going to an employee.

New Main board, LED Lamp Driver board and Led Auxiliary Lamp Driver Board.

Color mathing LED's, EXCEPT I put in slow fade color changers leading into the queens chamber.

Displays are original and connections reflowed.

ORBS and 1234 Drops are new. Queens chamber original.

All drop target units were torn down and cleaned.

Metal was tumbled.

Plastics are new.

Backglass is original and nice.

Coin door is from a rapid fire. Cabinet is original. I kinda like the beaten look as it seems like this game was in Centaur's biker bar. But that's me. I've restored this to where I'd like it. There are about 50 plays on the new pf. If cabs are the most important thing in deciding to buy a pin, this is NOT the Centaur you've been looking for...

I promised the wife I'd sell this after I restored it, so here it is. Please rip the band-aid off quickly...

Willing to trade for a more family friendly game like: MMR or MBR.

Shipping is fine but up to you to make arrangements.

Can potentially deliver to Tacoma/Seattle area, as planning a trip there soon.

Happy Flipping!

Did you consider a divorce instead?

I bet that tactic worked with a bunch of other pinsiders!

Keep the pin & sell the wife instead? No, you're better suited to just to install a Gilligan's Island back-glass instead. She'll never know the difference ~ Good looking machine & GLWS!

LOL She asks very little and has allowed me an early retirement. But, after finishing this one, it was much harder to post than I anticipated...

Love the way you guys think! It could be partially restored for a very long time - ha! Actually - it is as restored as I want it to be, but I know if I posted it as fully restored I'd get restore-policed to death lol.

#16 9 months ago

You shouldn't have even used the word restored.

He’s good! Game is tasteful and should sell quickly as described.

You are a smart man!

I recently listed a gorgeous Fathom and was "restore-policed" by some bozos who thought the back of the back-box wasn't sufficiently restored! Just to be clear...the part of the cabinet that isn't visible
