Need to confirm whether the stock legs were the that funky dark gray or chromed; my example has chrome but it looks from what I can tell from several photos on IPDB that they’re gray.

Not 100% sure but I am betting on painted gray. EM version was before the SS one and the flyer for the SS shows painted legs.

Marco has what the originals were. I ordered these the other day to replace my bent up rusted ones on my project Mata Hari.

I go dark grey on classic Bally. In addition to Marco:

If you are cheap you can always go to the spray paint aisle of your local hardware store.

Yes the 28 1/2" charcoal grey color is correct. Leg bolts should be 9/16th's "crowned" style. Not sure if those legs from Marco are actually correct, I'd have to see them in person to compare but they look a little different from the picture but it's hard to tell.

Yes I'm a stickler for the correct legs and bolts.

Not to jump on someone else’s post, but.... Bally Time Zone - mine has somewhat beat up gray legs, Ipbd pics show chrome, google images mostly gray but also red and chrome. What was original?

Those legs are not correct, someone has the wrong ones on that game. If you look at the original flyer you will see that there supposed to be the typical charcoal/grey color. Chrome ribbed style is totally wrong and a sin if you ask me.
LOL.

Ok here is the original leg next to Marcos. The "rib" if that's what is called is about 2" longer on the original. Pretty happy with these new ones though, they're gonna look amazing on the repainted cabinet.

Hmm....not bad but I'm wondering why they cut it short unless it was to match the Williams legs and that way they either had to chrome or paint to save money?
I'm gonna find me some nice originals though so that they still match the other dozen games next to it.

Thanks for the comparison snapshot. Talked to Steve at PBR last night - he carries this leg as well; they spent quite a bit of time in matching color - didn’t ask him about details on whether the rib length matched the orignal.
