Added: January 25th, 2017 Ended: January 30th, 2017
Condition: Used - shows wear but 100% working and clean

Item description

I have for sale a Bally PARAGON.
This pin is working 100% OK without errors: general illumination, switched lamps, solenoids, flippers and all the mechanisms were revised and they are working correctly.
Each mechanism installed on the playfield was removed, fully disassembled, cleaned, and refurbished before being re-installed.
The flippers were rebuilt with new plungers, links, coil stops, and cabinet switches.
Artwork of the playfield is an overlay with a "playfield protector" from Germany installed over it.
The set of plastics is in good condition. There are no broken pieces.
Switches on the playfield were cleaned and new capacitors were installed on the ones that originally came with this component.
The full set of drop targets is new.
The four bumper caps, bumper bodies, and bumper skirts are new.
The set of rubbers is new.
All new bulbs were installed throughout.
Backglass is original (not a reproduction). It is in good condition with only a couple of small retouches. The colors are vibrant and unfaded.
The interior of the lower cabinet and backbox are clean.
Set of boards is in very good condition.
A capacitor was installed in place of the battery on the CPU to prevent acid damage in the future (CPU is very clean and does not have any damage like this).
Male pins for the three connectors on the power supply board were replaced with new ones and the three female connectors for this board were rebuilt as well.
Sounds are clear.
The backbox is in solid condition with some small retouches here and there. Much of the artwork on the lower cabinet was retouched at some point in the past. It's not a perfect job, but looks nice from an overall view.
Three coin mechs for quarters are installed and they are working correctly.
Original coin box is included.
Apron has some scratches on the artwork (a decal is available for sale in the market if desired).
Front door and backbox have locks with the corresponding keys.
Four new leg levelers are included.
A perfect repro of the manual and schematics is included.

Can be shipped door to door in the CONUS by STI/CRST/NAVL.
Overseas shipping is also available.

PM me with your questions.

Wow! That is a beautiful game.

That's a beauty! Question: Do the Paragon inserts have any cupping?

Quoted from snaroff:

The surface of the playfield is flat in the current condition.
I uploaded a video of this machine in action on Youtube. This is the link:

Very nice looking, how about a combo deal with that Centaur on the left

#6 3 years ago

That CENTAUR (https://www.facebook.com/pinballmaniallc/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1475915665781891) is waiting for STI to be moved to the home of the new owner. CENTAUR II (https://pinside.com/pinball/market/classifieds/ad/43496) is still available for sale.
