#703 4 years ago

I'm looking for a dead, unrestorable late 80's William pinball machine for a P-roc project. I'm in Southern California. Ideally, it would be a system 7 to system 11 pinball. It doesnt have to have the boards in it, just a relatively intact play field and cabinet.

Just to clarify, I'm not looking for a free machine, I'm willing to pay $200 or possibly a little more.

Quoted from o-din:

It sure is! It's also a great way to circumvent having to list a pinball machine in the marketplace.

Educate this newbie... Why would I not want to list a machine in the marketplace?

I am selling my Williams Flash in Tehachapi, California.

This would be a good machine for someone that wants to try their hand at cabinet and playfield restoration, as the machine is very complete, and mechanically in good condition.

Im asking $800 obo for it.

It looks like I have finally found a home for my Flash. Hopefully it will get moved out in the next few weeks.

I'm looking for a High Speed or Pinbot for around $1000. I know there are one of each on Craigslist, but I think each may be a bit overpriced.

#1802 4 years ago

Digging through my stash of pinball parts today, I came across a back glass for a space invaders. (The rear glass with the graphics) I'll post pictures if anyone is interested in buying it.

#1804 4 years ago

Quoted from dsuperbee:

Hoping to find a Tommy, hopefully in N. Ca. Only requirement is that the blinders are there and functional.

Jasonbar,
With regards to your U20 issue. I fought a similar electrical issue in a friend of mine's Judge Dred a few months ago. You can read about it here: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/tech-jd-keeps-eating-uln2803s

We ended up replacing U14, and so far it has held up 3 months later.

I am looking to trade my Popeye. This is a very family friendly machine, that has a very deep rule set to keep the adults interested. It is pretty clean, and works well. I would prefer another Williams WPC era machine. I would love to get a High Speed 2 or No Good Gophers.
It's located in Tehachapi, CA..

I've dropped the price on my Popeye to $1900. I'd like to sell it to a pinsider rather than put it on Craigslist.

#2902 3 years ago

Any one interested in a project Space Shuttle?
All the parts are there, and the plastics look to be in good shape (however some are warped). I tried to clean up the playfield, but it is planking too much to be cleaned. The cabinet head needs repainting also. One the plus side, it works and plays well. However, a remote backup battery needs to be installed. I am hoping to get $600 for it.

Quoted from swanng:

Agreed. I think the most I ever paid was for Medieval Madness (or maybe it was Tales of the Arabian Nights): if I recall, they were both $2200.00. The ToTAN was a private sale from a collector in Salinas, and I got the MM from Betson off route. Purchased both around 2005-2006.
I don't think we'll ever see prices like that again.
Greg

Yeah, they are not making any more of those machines. Unless the economy takes a huge dive, we may never see prices like that again.

#2963 3 years ago

Popeye and Space Shuttle both were sold today. Thanks Wil...

#2987 3 years ago

I am going to try to buy this year at pagg. I'm looking for a player quality WPC game like HS2, FT, or WCS94.

So how hard is it to find deals at PAGG? I've never been to a show before.

#3016 3 years ago
Quoted from Cheddar:

But please, if you buy leave the machine on the floor until the end of the show. Nothing is worse than machines leaving friday and leaving holes on the floor.

I can see how that would be a problem. I hope to be able to stay until at least noon on Sunday.

Quoted from doomid:

Always said this would be one of the last to go but Ghostbusters has forced me to put it up. BOP 2.0 by dutch pinball. Took about a year to show up, game is amazing. This is the upgraded kit with color display and upgraded speakers and sub. Works as it ahould problem free. Game itself is full LED includong flashers. Playfield mylar removed befpre i got it, has ballmarks in middle but very uniform. Touchups done around inserts. Cab very nice, no fade and original. Head has some scrapes but nothing significant.
Not sure what to ask...thinking $4800.

I'm thinking about putting my HUO TSPP up for trade. Here is what I am thinking...

My game is worth about $4,200. It's in pretty good shape. I bought it from Doomid about 6 months ago.

I'd trade it for:
STTNG, in good condition straight across
FH +$200, in good condition
NGG +$700, in good condition
FT + $1500, unfaded, in good condition

These are just starting points....

Well happy New Years from the snowy mountains of SoCal! I hope everybody is doing well.
Well 2017 has found me with the classic pinball problem: I finally have a shop with enough room to hold more machines, but I can't afford any more machines. I hope someday California pinball prices come back to reality. In the mean time, I will keep working on my beaters, and I hope that by the end of the year, I have to most expensive SF2 pinball in history.

So here is the new shop for those who are interested!

Very nice shop Uncivil! Hope you are having good luck with STTNG!

Star Trek is one of the machines under the sheets. I've had a lot of fun with that one.

#4933 2 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

Nice space! Here's the thing, you can always save money for a pin. They're not cheap, but they're attainable with some patience if you don't have the cash right now. You can't do the same thing with space. I've got a garage for my toys, and that's it. It's not getting bigger, I can't save up for a bit and just get more real estate for a few grand.

You have a good point. At least I now have the space. Now If I could just find a rotted out Funhouse....

#5157 2 years ago

So I am thinking of trading out my STTNG. It is in pretty good shape, fully LED'd out, and still has the stock display. If I had to put a value on it, I would think about $4,800. What I might be interested in would be NNG +some cash, a Funhouse +some cash, or a Simpsons Pinball Party +some cash (or straigh across for a nice one).

The ironic part is that I traded a very nice Simpsons Pinball Party for this machine. I now regret that decision. I like STTNG, but I have played it enough that it is no longer one of my grail pins like I thought it was.

My sister has a nice Surfer, and she has sent it down to me in Tehachapi to clean it up and get it ready to sell. She lives in the South San Fransisco area, and I will be bringing the game back to her in about a month. Is there anyone in the Bay area that might be interested in buying the game? We are thinking of asking $1000.

It has 41k plays on the meter, and is very clean inside. The cabinet has a few dings in it, and I would rate it a 7, and the playfield is pretty clean except for two wear spots. I would give it a 7. The back glass is perfect (a 9), and mechanically it is in pretty good shape (an 8.5). So the machine I would rate at a solid 7 out of 10.

If you are interested, PM me and I will get you some pictures as I shop out the game.

I am going to be letting my Alien Poker go. It plays great.

Mechanically: 8 out of 10, sometimes the drop targets don't score, but the boards have been built-proofed.

I had to visit the State Architects office in down town LA today, so I got a chance to stop by Ayce Gogi at lunch time, and check out the new lineup. He as both the new Guardians of the Galaxy and TNA available for play. I only played one game of Guardians, as it feels alot like most of the new stern games. I did almost put $5 into TNA. That thing is fast, and a tough play. I was only able to destroy one reactor in all my games. Given the music and the vibe of the game, it feels like the grandson of Pinbot.

So I think I have finally lined up enough funds to go looking for one of my grail machines. So here is my official 'I want it!' ad...

I am looking for a restoration candidate Funhouse.

If you look at my posting history, you will find that I completely re-did a SF2 over the last two years, and I am hoping to do the same with a Funhouse.

So what do I mean by a restoration candidate?

1. The playfield must be complete (including Rudy)
2. Ideally, the game is still assembled. However, I would consider a game in pieces as long as the playfield is still assembled.
3. The cabinet can be faded, scratched, and gouged. I just don't want anything with delaminating plywood, or water damage.
4. The backglass/translite can be faded, or even completely missing.
5. The playfield...This is where things get tricky. I know there are reproduction playfields out there, and they do occasionally come up for sale. That said, I absolutely would love to buy (and am willing to pay more for) a restoration machine that would include an uninstalled reproduction playfield. However, as long a the playfield is restoreable (minor wear marks, no prior touchups) I will consider it. Rudy must be complete.
6. Boards/electronics.. It does not need to work. I can be missing boards, but no missing/hacked wiring harnesses please.
7. Price: Obviously I am not going to pay you the same as you would get for a nice fully functional Funhouse. I am willing to pay $3,000-$3,500 (cash on the glass) for a complete game.
8. I am not interested in shipping a game from out of state. Ive had bad experience with shippers, and am more than willing to travel as far south as San Diego, and as far north as the Bay area.

I sent a PM regarding the HS plastics.

Quoted from ctl723:

Cleaning house this weekend. I can post pics, but I'd rather you inspect/buy in person. Located in Santa Clara, 95050.
1. Nip It - $800
* Project game. "It was totally working before I took it apart". Tore down the top side to touch up playfield that had some paint loss + planking. Never got around to putting it back together. Parts should all be present (can definitely confirm that all the hard to find bits are like the artwork + balligator mech). I have an extra (good but not great) playfield I picked up at some point that I'll include with the game. Backglass is fantastic and perfect, enough so that I thought about just keeping the glass as art and tossing the game but I'd hate to do that to a "working" game.
2. Xenon Playfield (CPR Gold) - $800
* From the original run. Registration + clearcoat are great. Some slight warping from storage.
3. Medusa Playfield (CPR Gold) - $800
* From the recent (only?) run. Looks great. No issues.
4. Addams Family Playfield - $1000
* This was from IPB. Bought a game that already had a new field installed, so don't need it. Really nice.
5. Centaur Backglass - $200
* Original glass. No flaking, no peeling, all the paint is there, but there is some bubbling visible at certain angles.
6. High Speed Plastics - $150
* Brand new set from CPR, never used. Totally thought I was going to buy a High Speed someday, but never did.
I'm open to reasonable offers on all items.

Quoted from WhiskeyPinball:

Hi Gents,
I am looking for some early SS titles - projects (am based out of Concord - East Bay Area).
Show me what you got / want to get rid of.
Thanks,
WP

I talked to acitti today, and he has some projects machines I know he will be needing to move out soon.

#7151 1 year ago

On a related note, I am wiling to entertain offers on my Taxi I have for sale.

#7159 1 year ago

I need to make some room in my shop, so I decided to sell my Taxi. However, I may also be willing to part with my Whirlwind if there is interest.

Mechanically the machine is in good condition. I picked this up as a project last year, and managed to get it going. It got a ton of play at the Golden State Pinball Festival this last year, and help up well. The playfield is original, but is still in good shape. It does have some broken plastics, particularly around the drop targets, and the slings.

The worst part of the machine is the cabinet. It looks like it sat on someone's porch for a while. The head is delaminating in one spot. I believe the head on this late System 11 is the same as the heads on early WPC machines, so cosmokramer should be able to make a replacement at a reasonable price.

The price would be $2,400 firm for the machine. I will try to get some pictures and and an add up this evening.

#7183 1 year ago

Quoted from swanng:

I have a Gottlieb Haunted House complete project machine that needs a new home. The cabinet is in better shape cosmetic-wise than most, and the playfields have the typical wear. All the boards are included and some ground modifications were made to the CPU and driver boards, and some transistors were replaced on the pop bumper driver boards. The capacitors for the rectified DC in the bottom of the cabinet were replaced. The backglass is in very good shape and is included. I will have some photos available this evening on Photobucket. Local pickup ONLY.
Price is $750.00 firm.
PM with any questions.

Location?

I have a HS I am going to part with. It’s about average condition with the usual Mylar on the playfield. I was waiting for the hardtop to come out, but now I’ve got other priorities. It does have a new red main ramp installed, and the traffic light has been relocated. The cabinet is in above average condition, but the front was drilled for a lock bar. The back glass does have a some wear spots around the displays that someone has tried to repaint. Mechanicaly it’s in good shape. The only issue is the GI has been wired to be permenantly on. SOLD...

HS is sold. Thanks guys.

I’d like to buy a Project Black Hole. I’m only looking to spend around $1500 for a complete machine (the domestic version), or possibly more if a new playfield is included.

I was down there on Friday, and took a look at the selection. The NF didn’t look bad, and the JD was very clean with no fade,but had a credit dot. I was kinda in and out so I didn’t get a chance to took in much detail other than the JD.

Quoted from xsvtoys:

They are saying 6.6

It was pretty strong in my neck of the woods. I felt the rolling, and realized what it was, and moved outside. All the hanging lamps in my shop swung around pretty good. It lasted a good 20 to 30 seconds.

I have an old EM Pitch and Bat I am going to sell. It is a 1972 Midway Flash Baseball. Everything on it works but the sound. The old 8 track player doesn't work anymore. Im asking $300 for it. PM for pictures.

Quoted from zermeno68:

I actually live in Ridgecrest... I am about 3 miles away from China Lake military base and some distance inside is the location of the epicenter. I NEVER want to experience these Quakes that we just went through AGAIN!!!!! This was my first experience with earthquakes.

My boss got a call yesterday from a mining facility up near Ridgecrest, I may be up there tomorrow doing a damage assessment. It will be my first time dealing with the aftermath of a major quake. I know every time there has been an aftershock over 4, I’ve felt it here in Tehachapi. I’m ready for this run of quakes to be over too.

Quoted from MrArt2u:

Anyone coming out to the Banning show in search of some project games, I’m a mere eighty *easy* SoCal freeway miles away in Pasadena and I’ve got a bunch of them. Mostly EMs and a few early SS. Stacked deep and selling cheap. Space Mission, Aztec, Tri-zone, Sharpshooter, Extra Inning, Turf King, star Pool, Time Zone, they cool old Genco Rifle game. So many I can’t possibly remember them all! Some were working when I bought them. Some weren’t. Nothing you guys can’t handle

While I am always up for a SS project, for this trip, my suburban is already full
