If anyone is looking for a HUO - DILE, don't hesitate to reach out. Blast to play, but I have to keep up my yearly rotation. Only trade at this moment that I would consider is for a MMr LE.

Walk out basement, and I can certainly help with packing and loading.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm hoping to find something just a bit closer. Although there is an Aerosmith Pro for sale in the same area.
One trip for two games.

That was the plan today. I narrowed my list to two bikes, a Triumph or Indian. Rumor is the local Triumph dealer is closing it's door. The next closest is an hour away. I checked their website for hours and inventory and headed out. They were closed for a long holiday weekend. I stopped at the Indian dealer on the way home. They were open, but had sold out of the bike I was there to see. I did stop at a couple other dealers, but nothing caught my eye.

Disappointing day.

To keep this pinball related, still looking for an Iron Maiden pro. Also interested in a Deadpool Premium.

Just buy a convertible. It's the best of both worlds. You can feel the wind in your hair. and you get the safety of being kept safe inside a 1/2 ton of steel.

Not bad advice, that’s what we did. I loved my bike but only I was enjoying it. With a convertible ya got almost the same feeling and whole family can get in. Ya can’t lean in the turns tho, that I miss. But ya can put the top down and stand a pin up in the back seat

Yeah unfortunately for me I am based in PHL, so that's my commute to work. I ride in back like everyone else, sometimes in the jumpseat. Thanks to T-Mobile I get some free internet time on every flight. And what better way to pass the time than shopping for pins on CL and surfing this site?

Over the Atlantic we have satellite internet, but IMO it sucks. Not AOL dial up bad, but close.

Other than that, rest assured when we are at work, it is all business.

PM me on the outside chance that someone is driving from around Rochester to the SFGE this week in Atlanta and wants to make some $$ transporting a pin.

#12821 2 years ago

Ok... I rearranged the gameroom to add room for up to 2-3 more pins... so, I'm on the hunt for something in my wishlist. Ok, don't laugh, it's more of a extremely_long_sort_of_maybe_want_to_possibly_own_someday list. For the next addition, to narrow it down, I'm thinking something along the lines of one of these would be nice...

I spend most of my time trying to find pins as well on flights. Mostly for playing. This trip has been a dud so far. Poland and Spain have failed me. Paris doesn't hold out much hope either at this point.

Thanks Euroland.

Visit the Paris Pinball Museum... must schedule in advance... see https://www.pinball-gallery.com/

Definitely not a lot of modern pins... and some that aren't in fully functioning condition but overall I was impressed with everything I played and got to try a ton that normally aren't available except maybe at shows or in private collections.

Thanks Euroland.

Your findings mirror mine. Outside of the UK, the rest of Europe is for the most part, a lost cause for pinball. Even IF I have found a bar with a pin somewhere, it is usually in need of a lot of maintenance and cleaning, if not out of order altogether. I’m guessing that it’s probably just too expensive getting parts and there is also a significant wait time for snail mail to deliver parts as well. Not to mention, knowledge on how to fix the machines. So, I get it......sort of.

It’s too bad, as there seem to be a decent number of private owners with several or more pins at their homes (according to the pinmap). You would think that there would be a market for a good pinball bar SOMEWHERE, such as large cities like Madrid, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Frankfort, Milan etc..

Anyone want to go in on a business venture? Preferably Prague or Barcelona - the cities with the highest eye candy ratio, BY FAR.

I'm looking for someone in the Kenosha area to look at my Mr and Mrs Pacman pinball as well as my Mrs Pacman arcade- the pinball machine will light up when turned on but won't play, and the arcade plays but the screen is at about 125%, so you cant see the scores at the top. We have reseated all of the connections in the pinball machine, that's about all I know how to do. Any recommendations?

#12831 2 years ago

Just freed up some more space and am thinking about an Iron Maiden premium. Seems like there's a number for sale out east, but haven't seen any around here. Before I decide to go NIB I thought I'd post to see if anyone has a nice HUO one they're looking to sell.

Wow....assumptions much? F off buddy. You don't know me.

Not that I owe you or anyone an explanation, but the defects were not deemed severe enough for Stern to replace with a populated playfield. I was able to get an unpopulated playfield in case it got worse. I did not find it bad enough to go through an unpopulated swap. At the time I got it, I did not intend on selling the machine and wanted it for the peace of mind for the future. As we all know, things change and when I sold my machine, I offered it to the buyer. He was not interested. All blemishes were clearly pointed out, and the price reflected that. That is how I roll. I do not stiff people, or take advantage of "opportunities" at anyone's expense. If anything, I always undersell my machines. I've been burned in the past, and refuse to do that to anyone else.

But you know...thanks for trying to make me look like a bad guy for offering it up here to someone who might need it. Thanks for showing YOUR colors so I can add you to my "do not deal with" list. I'd rather wipe my ass with it. You user name is quite fitting.
