Pawn Stars...is that you?!

mikem8119 How did you arrive at your asking price? At roughly triple what an Evel Knievel goes for you'll need more pictures and some details on the restoration work that was completed if you hope to get close to your asking price.

in todays market, how much is a reasonable condition Evel worth?

Case and point why first time posters shouldn’t be allowed to post FS ads.

Maybe he only had one picture left on his camera film.

For a minute I thought I missed Stern or JJP has a new Evel Knievel machine out. Guess not.

Hey Hey. Prices are really all over the place on this EK, so it is hard to research.

Seller - help us help you by taking pictrues of all sides of the cabinet, The playfield with the glass off and pics of the boards. List what the person who restored it did. That could mean taking the entire game apart or just wiping down and cleaning the play field.

You were new once.

Likely you didn't head on in and post a FS ad right off the bat though. I didn't.

You are like me I bet - more about "the love" that goes on here than the money.

Price police to the rescue. Let the market dictate what happens; you guys are not helping OK. Since the price police is in full swing.

Its a 1400 dollar game.

#18 1 year ago

OP, post up close pictures with the glass off. Detail the good and bad and what the tech did 4 years ago, more detail the better. That is only way to justify your asking price to others above. Check other machines for sale ads for examples. Show pics also of the boards and with lifted playfield

I have 4K in my Evel Knievel, clear coated NOZ new playfield, clear coated cabinet , all chrome trim, all new altek boards, new plastics, led displays. It is worth every bit of 4K. It is not a $1400 pin.

love this, killer looking game. I did sell mine for $1400 last year, but it didn't look like this one.

#21 1 year ago
Quoted from Wmsfan:

hey- he is new here...says it all

New or not, if I am selling something, I do my due diligence and homework to at least get a price reasonably in the correct range. This is not a restoration, anyone can tell from the far away pic that the cabinet has marks. The text says "restoired...to working condition" - this implies everything has been made functional, IMO. I would assume we are nowhere near the "right" starting price, so the first thing would be to get a lot more pics of this thing.

Quoted from tatman9999:

I have 4K in my Evel Knievel

That's a beauty and what I would expect a $3500+ EK to look like.

OK. That is a killer game and I apologize like everyone else should. That is incredible and nice work. Sorry. I also drained my post.

#23 1 year ago

In this guy's defense, he goes on eBay and says OK fair asking price when nobody is getting what a lot of nut jobs over there are asking for. He will learn. A fully restored game like tatman's are a different beast than a game that is merely fully working. I would never pay more than 1200-1500 for a nice players condition EK.

Yes, YOURS is worth $4k. I have a feeling his is NOT at all like yours.

I paid $1500.00 for mine 6 months ago, for reference. It, unfortunately, does not look like yours either. I have a hardtop, new plastics, drop targets, pop caps, etc etc that will spruce it up after I finish up Strikes and Spares. Gonna keep the cabinet original for now.

No defense needed, no learning needed. There's a 98% chance a first post from someone like this never returns.

You are absolutely right. I'm just saying in the off chance this guy might be respectable. He has a lot of BS pinball ads to sift through in order to make an educated guess.
