I am thinking about going to check out a Motordome and I was curious what kind of price range I should be looking at. Per the seller the ramps are perfect and there are no broken plastics. They said they recently had it completely gone over by a tech and it plays 100%. There are no keys but the coin door is open. The cabinet is in good condition.

Along with that does anyone have any opinions on the game? I was only able to find a couple of YouTube videos. It seems like most of the reviews say it has weak and annoying sounds. I do kind of dig the theme with the Madmax style motorcycles.

I loved it for about 2 hours. Backglass is nice. The sounds are the worst I have ever heard. I sold it after 2 weeks for $400 which is what I paid. The buyer tried to flip it the next day for $800. Last I checked, he had dropped the price to $600 and it still hasn't sold. Overall, its not terrible, but I wouldn't pay over 500. I love the snap of those bally 6803 flippers

Motordome is a hard sell, about $500 max. It's a fast game because of the tight shots and the inlanes kick the ball back at the flippers fast. The backglass is mirrored glass and looks cool. The cabinet is partical board Bally generic crap for the era. You get to pick between 3 games at the start which is interesting and the crossover ramp shot is unique. The large blue flashers in his visor on the playfield are nice affect. It's an ok game for the money, I owned one for about a year and glad I got to check it out. Just turn the sound down if it gets anoying. Being a motorcycle nut also helped me enjoy it.
