Buddy of mine down in Escondido has been wanting a Surfer or Surf Champ. This one needs a shop job and currently the score motor spins and game won't reset (likely an easy fix, though).

What should he offer? $900 seems quite high, but I don't know that market well.

As long as the pf is in good shape I'd say that's fair. Surf Champ is my #1 pinball btw.

That is high for a non-working machine.

I sold one about 4-5 years ago for $850. It was in pretty good shape, good playfield and backglass, cab was nicked up a bit.

To you non-working should be worth about the same as working, granted you know how to work on EMs a bit, to the seller non-working should be worth a lot less, granted they don't know how to fix it.
So basically, you've got some bargaining room, but not a terrible deal at that price IMO if it's in good/very good cosmetic shape (playfield, backglass, plastics).
If not that's too much.

I'd go 750 if playfield is good and backglass is good...non-working no problem as long as it's all there

Surf Champ my #1 as well. Love it.

I "think" I have some extra plastics if you need any.

Ok thanks. My friend said he got a message from the guy in So-Cal that he had an offer pending.

I love me some Surfer chick. Maybe my favorite EM.

I paid considerably more than that for mine, but it is in exceptionally good shape.
