Almost finished fixing up this Xenon and wanted to see what the community thinks it would be worth. I want to rebuild a few more connectors before I sell it.

New altek mpu, rotten dog sdb and a new power rectifier board.
New rubbers, comet leds in gi and back box.
Incandescent bulbs under playfield and Chase lights
All displays work great
Backglass is near perfect
new leg levelers
Works 100%

Some playfield wear.
Pinside average is like 2k. With this playfield wear not sure where it falls in. Cleaned and waxed and plays great. I'll make a fs/ft thread when I finish with the connectors

Very similar condition as the one I bought, PF worn in same spots, I paid $800

#6 7 months ago

Sold one with similar wear for $1,000 a few years ago. Perhaps closer to $1,500 now, haven't really followed the market.

#7 7 months ago

Not sure on pricing but I have wanted to play this game since seeing a non-working one in Alaska 2 years ago. Looks great!

with brand new boards?

#9 7 months ago

No, but working ones.
I'm not saying that's what yours is worth,
just what I was willing to pay, I know how much
the Alltek boards cost, I now have $2,200 into it,
and still have to replace the PF. I'll never get out, what I've put in.

The idea that many Pinside members have about new boards being a good thing isn't always true. Many of us would take a clean working original over new every time. Had a guy turn down a nice deal on a Data East board because it was too old.

I think the most you'll get is about 1300-
The playfield and cab hurt you a little. That would be my limit anyway.

Where was that? I might try to hunt it down.

#13 7 months ago

I’ll concur with lpeters82. I’d price it at $1500 and come down if you have to.

These days a non-working project will cost you $700 or more.

concur, also think sometimes the shot gun remove and replace ends up cost more than its worth. other than acid damaged MPU's i generally try and repair what i can. having only worked with bally a hand full of times its usually cold sold joints and caps.

#15 7 months ago

That wear kills it for allot of buyers unfortunately.

Yeah this MPU was toast and missing the SDB and power board. I could throw in an original SDB and take out the rottendog if buyer wants that.

I sold one with original boards with worse playfield wear and a messed up sound board for $1000 like 3 months ago. Got these in a package deal

buyer bought a CPR playfield and is doing a full restore. Luckily both had near mint backglasses.

I think at $1400-$1500 if you put in sweat/time equity and a new cpr playfield for $700 youd still be around the average price on here with a pretty nice game. I am not putting in that sweat/time equity tho lol

edit: looks like they are out of bronze but could get a silver for 750 or gold for 800

I think the point the other pinsider(s) are trying to convey is that if for instance the old sdb worked no point in replacing it, even if it didn’t the repair cost usually is cheaper than a replacement. The desire to ask more increases when you replace more parts. Even with the playfield wear and new boards if you where closer I’d give it a go for 1200-1500 But that’s me I’m not huge on playfield wear more of if it plays let’s go type of person.

I had a similar worn PF that I sold to a friend for $1500. I added a new CPR plastic set and a new PF protector plus all the stuff I usually do, posts, rubber, flipper bats, pop caps, etc. New tube and a bit better cab, plus LED's in the inserts and head. He's routing it now so I musta done ok.

Having new boards is nice (and spendy) but does it really add value to make something do what it's already supposed to do? It's not an upgrade with the door shut, it's a side-grade...JMHO...

I put a limited 2009 gold edition playfield in mine and made some mods (which can be removed). Easily worth $3K now.

Can’t lose at $1500 for a decent, working game with new boards while playfields are available.

So just to reiterate this game had no SDB or power board when I got. I could swap an original sdb from my harleem or skateball for the repro cause idgaf as long as the game plays lol.

Thanks everyone for their input !
