I searched and did not see a club for this game so I figured I would start one for the bally, Sega and Stern Harley Davidson pinball. I just picked up a very nice Sega Harley Davidson last week.

I got my Bally #HarleyDavidson in October. It needed some love. The PF was dirty, 1/3rd of the GI lights were out, rubbers were worn, and the alpha/numeric displays had broken loose from the backpanel door. It's now repaired, and I'm waiting for a package of LEDs to finish the project. Although it doesn't have an upper or lower playfield, it's surprisingly fast and fun to play. I'm looking for a replacement left spinner -- my has a set of bowling pins on it!

Does anyone know what activates the HELICOPTER FLASHER in the Bally #HarleyDavidson? Solenoid #24 on the left side under the chopper. Why would they put a flasher there if it does nothing?

Question to the HD owners:

I have a HD from a friend here. It works good but sometimes up to 3 balls get in the VUK under the traffic light. 2 balls get with some tries popped out. 3 balls in means to remove the glass and pull them out with a magnet stick. Is this a bug or a feature

Just put one out a Bikers Brewhouse. The brewery is in Biketown Harley Davison in Austintown Ohio

Bought mine with less than 200 plays years ago, sold to a friend, bought it back. Still has less than 500 plays.

Didn’t know where else to post, but I’m a member of the rev1 club. Did a complete strip and shop with comets/titans. I took out the low rider and added in my 1997 Wide Glide which I paint matched.

Live to ride!

Hey guys.....just joined the club with the Sega version (although Stern tags are all over this thing). I'm brand new to the game. Once in a while there are 2 balls in the shooter lane that will eject. Is this normal? Some type of mystery rider or something?

Thanks!

Check switch #16, the shooter lane switch.

OK... thanks for that tip....

No, this is not normal. I have only experienced this on HD when I had problems with my shooter lane switch, which is why I mentioned that trying to be helpful.

I am assuming you meant multi-ball in which case lane switch didn't register and trough is just spitting them up regardless. If not multi-ball then you have trough issues.

Good luck.

No sarcasm at all. Haven’t had a chance to check it yet although i noticed its bent to 1 side so I am going to tweak it. I know they come up at the same time. It’s not one after the other. Happens after a new ball enters the shooter lane after the previous ball drains.

Hmm, the same time thing (one vuk strike gives two balls) makes me think they are stacking in your trough. Bunch of ways to fix that, but my best fix is tweaking the trough switches to give 'just' the right amount of resistance. That is unless your pin is leaning bad to the right.

I'd still tweak that shooter lane switch to rule that out. My stacking in the lane was one ball at a time, so might not help you then.

Cheers.

Ok thanks. Makes sense it may be something in the trough. Will check that out.

#16 3 months ago

So I unplugged all connections by the trough. All switches appear to be working fine. Resistance seems to be ok. I bent the shooter lane switch so its nice and straight now. It happened only one time while playing the game a couple dozen times. Also think my Playfield angle is a little on the higher side so will bring it down a touch. We shall see.....thanks again.

Hello all, I just joined the club last month. The game has been at my brothers house, picking it up next week. Can someone tell me what scale the bikes are on the sling shots.

#18 3 months ago

I believe its 1:18. They sell them at Marco so you can go there for reference. I believe the big bike in the back is 1:10.

I just joined the club last week. I am not even a bike fan, but this pin looks and sounds badass so I had to have it. I think my casual players will just simply enjoy it. If they want something difficult, they can step to right and play Fish Tales.

This game is the Stern 1st edition, and was stored a long time in a warehouse without the glass on, and apparently exposed to both moisture and dirt - basically caking a lot of the playfield in a thin layer of mud. I've started the cleaning process and removed the mylar. The cabinet needs a lot of work too. I've got a long road ahead to get it where I want it to be, but I am happiest tinkering on abandoned games to get them looking and playing good.

Question Harley owners. Does your game auto launch the ball between each ball in play? It seems the ball launch button on the cabinet has no purpose, but it checks out in switch test. I didn't see any references to an adjustment in the menu. Sometimes I would like to take a drink before launching the next ball, but the game shoots them automatically.

Nevermind. It was a flaky shooter lane switch.

Playfield reassembled. Still a lot of work to be done, especially on the cabinet, but happy with it so far.

I just picked one up. I played a few games and have the general idea. I’m sure there’s more to it. Googled and couldn’t find a rule sheet, etc... online.
Does anybody have a link ?

About all I could find was the rule card:

Thanks for the reply.
Great suggestions on the card about “shoot for what’s flashing” and read the DMD

I added a few spot lamp holders from Pinball Life, just standard 555 bulbs for now. One behind the traffic light shining on the bike, the other two on the slings to light up the center of the playfield. Really helps for gameplay and to show off the art.
