    Who knows...The original might look half way decent under the vinyl?

    It might, depending what type of adhesive he used. The apron might be OK too.

    $100 is a solid deal I think.

    WTF? I don't understand what the hell that is. Even used for advertising without the backbox? And what kind of retheme is that? I have a feeling he grabbed it out of the trash.

    It was probably for some marketing thing, and when they were done, the game probably got put into storage where the body and head got separated and lost from each other at some point.

    Quoted from pinostalgia:

    is $700 for a good condition motordome reasonable?

    Yes I think that is a pretty decent and fair price (depending on condition of course). In fact, it seems to be a few hundred dollars less that a typical Motordome in good condition.

    This gem on E-bay which "NEEDS NEW RUBBER FOR FLAPPERS" has an asking price of $7500. The condition it is in it might be worth $75.

    The ad says it is working. I sent a request for pictures of the machine actually working because I only see lights on and that's it. I can turn the headlights on, but if the engine doesn't run, it's NOT working!

    Shove your advice "Tom Jones" it is listed for $500, you are the goat roper who initiated this conversation at $200

    If I stated $450 was as low as I go in the ad you would have started at $100!

    You were nicer about it than I would have been.... I don't mind people trying to negotiate price. I do it too sometimes. But when they get insulting or have "advice" when things don't work out their way, and have to act like little kids? Ok! It's mine(whatever is for sale) and I'll sell it how ever I want! And now that I've gotten advice from them in a negative way like above? The price just went to $600 for them. Even if they don't buy it you still have to let them know an A-hole fee was just added if they actually want it.

    Quoted from Joker2415:

    I just expect it and bake a little something extra into the price so I can be "negotiated" down.

    Starting off less than half off listed price is just insulting though.

    Well I can't say I've seen that before. Doesn't accept $350, won't go lower than $450, raises price to $1,500

    But an expert told me it was an antique, it must be worth more than the price I was asking!

    Frankly I don't give a damn if it sells or not, Letgo has been a wasteland from day one.

    Far worse than dealing with CL "buyers" if that is even possible.

    Nicer (and willing to engage longer) than I would have been too. Anyone who offers 1/2 (or less) of an asking price is a tool. That is insulting and what I hate about the anonymity of texts. You’d have to have balls of steel to look me in the eye like a man and offer half what I’m asking because I’d look you in the eye and tell you to go F yourself.

    Some of these guys are bad! The last machine I bought the owner was hesitant to even talk to me at first. His first offers on the machine were a 100 bucks in texts......After he told me that, I said.."My first offer is $350? without even seeing it!"and to me that would have been stealing it! We ended up at $500 with some other things thrown in. A little more than I wanted to pay but I wanted the machine as a project pretty bad. I couldn't believe the offers he was telling me people were giving at 100 bucks though...haha And It probably works sometimes or they wouldn't do it.

    No way could I look a guy in the face and say..."ya...Well..I know your asking 700 but...She's a little rough...I'll give ya 100 bucks!"

    I could care less what people offer. It's their offer. I either take it or leave it. It's when they start getting mad about it. On the flip side? I may want too much for some things. It's just what I want for whatever reason. They don't need to get mad about that either..Just don't buy it! haha...And If I have to sell? They might catch me on the right day and get it cheap. I've done that too!

    I try to price pins (or anything for that matter) I throw on CL or Ebay in what I feel is in the reasonable range. Like I stated, where are you going to find a fully shopped pin with new elastics, ball, bulbs, stripped and waxed and every contact cleaned & adjusted, scoring reels cleaned, lubed and adjusted and doesn't look like a train wreck for $450?

    For Pinsiders I'll even do less.. well since they are Pinsiders.

    Been a few people on CL who have thrown $100 "offers" at me, I just delete the e-mail or text unanswered.

    I agree!! When I sell stuff, It's either because I have to to get some cash. Or just a her it is, take it or leave it, just to see if someone has more interest in it than me. So, I'm all over the place on how I price my stuff. If it's one of those times that I don't need the cash? I may like the person or even want to help them out and practically give it to them. Or if they start to get an attitude? I may not budge.

    If I have to sell it? Sometimes it's just to scrape up money, other times I try to recover what I have in it. Like my last sale. I was upfront with the condition, and had to get what I was asking.

    So...I'm all over the place with prices at times. Just depends on a few things. And never to "rip anyone off" it's just my price.

    Now...Watch!! You will get a $600 or $700 offer for your new listing! Would not surprise me one bit! In other hobbies we use to play with prices to see what would happen. You would be surprised sometimes! Price it reasonable and they think something is wrong with it...

    Letgo seems to be an app for Crack Heads (sorry if your a crack head and reading this) the few things I have put on there you get response in the middle of the night. Yes I still have it and never get a response back and get some really low low offerswhen you do.I listed a truck on Letgo and couldn't believe some of the bull. And some of the stuff for sale on Letgo unreal ( again sorry CH but no I can't take that little). I don't mind someone offering me less then my asking price but I don't like someone trying to get it for nothing.
