OP: TWO Bally Bow and Arrows 1975 Projects. My goal was to Frankenstein two Bow and Arrows to create one nice one, but I have run out of time and energy. One was gone over quite a bit mechnically, but now does not work as it has been sitting so long. The other game was purchased as a nonworking game.

If anyone has anything to trade anything that is working, want to trade tech time to get some of my other games working, or want to purchase the two I am open to all offers. I live in the East Bay, in Northern CA. I will take pictures if interested, but both are player quality. Thanks for looking.

"The owner says it's a broken fuse" ???

So the seller isn't the owner, and neither changed the "broken" fuse?

I asked for a picture of the broken fuse. Will report back....

They replied that it's Sold

#22156 3 months ago

I love my Bow and Arrow! If I were closer I’d probably pick them up.

What did they do to the playfield?

#22162 3 months ago

Ballypin - You beat me to it. I'm not interested - I already have one, and my touchup skills suck.

If headed to Springfield, IL for the Evel, grab this one too...

I sold my nice one last June for 3800. This one is overpriced for it's condition but someone will bite.

I should consider building an EK for my Bally cab, the one I played at a show was pretty fun.

The work lamp shining on the backglass really ties the scene together.

It's interesting how BGs can fade and look better.. love that White wizard look!

#22171 3 months ago

I thought the door bell mod blocking the left coin chute was an original idea. Most people mount them on the cabinet.

#22172 3 months ago

Hi, all, what do we think of a Rack-a-Ball for $500 that powers on, but won't reset, and has a back glass in real bad shape (imo)? Denver, CO, area, it's been up a month, so it could be expiring any day. Also, it only shows up if you search "pin ball," so it's missing from your standard "pinball" searches.

#22173 3 months ago

Thanks, I think I'll buy it!

Well, if it's been up a month, it's probably negotiable. Are all the bg balls there? A Rack a Ball for 500.00 is pretty good, depending on what the issues are. replacement glass could run you $300.00, Playfield looks like it will clean up. Maybe offer 250 - 300, since it needs a back glass, 40-50 hours labor + parts, more if you need to repair any missing/broken balls. They can always say no and you can negotiate a price from there.

Thanks, I'm trying to work up some enthusiasm for it, but I'm not quite getting there yet. I'm looking for a first project, but most of the EM's I feel interested in were made toward the end of the EM era. The 60's and earlier ones don't appeal as much for some reason. Still, I probably should send an offer in the range that would make it a no-brainer if they said yes...

#22175 3 months ago

King Rock $250. I remember seeing this one before in my area seems like it was cheaper, set of flippers seem to be missing and no lockdown bar so I know it’s the same game.

Contact the seller and tell them that you’re a collector and you’re interested in buying the pin, but you need to see it in person in order to make an offer.

If they aren’t happy with that, then they’re firm on their price and you should walk. If they set up a time for you to look at it they’re already willing to lower their price.

Only take the amount of money that you think you’re willing to spend. If you’re not willing to spend more than $300, only take $300. If you take more money than that, you might spend it and justify it to yourself. A really nice Old Chicago was posted locally for $1200. I contacted the seller within a couple of hours and gave him this speech. We set up a meeting time and I brought $400 and drove away with the pin.

In your initial message provide your name and phone number and that you know the address will probably expire soon do we should stay in touch by texting.

#22178 3 months ago

I messaged earlier, but it is pending pickup.

I would've loved to get it.

Yeah, I was offered this game, and was told it was a fuse.
I gave her the straight scoop (likely needs boards, and a new backglass), and since this wouldn't be a keeper for me, offered her $100. I figured I wouldn't hear back from her!

I didn’t know you would even make an offer on a solid state. Maybe all of us EM guys should start getting them because, really, how hard can it be to change a fuse?

It was way more than a fuse, but Jay sold his Genie and regretted it and has been looking for another for a while! I’m glad someone who appreciates it could get it. I love Genie but I’m maxed.

I've had several System 1 Gottliebs and got them working. Never paid very much for a non-working one. This wouldn't be a keeper for me, so I have to think about how much I can make on the game. Not worth my while unless I can get the game really cheap. If the backglass were good, I would have offered more.
