Item description

Up for consideration is a beautifully playing, issue-free, recently restored Big Brave.

This game plays fast and true without issues.
All switches are working and registering, all slings are firing, all lights are lighting and all chimes are chiming :) Love those Gottlieb chimes...

Playfield is in excellent condition. No missing paint, no major flaws, no touch-ups have been done or are needed. As expected, there is some slight insert cupping, but not enough to make much comment on.
The cabinet is solid as a rock. The art has some professional touch-ups and looks great on all sides.
The backglass is original and gorgeous. A couple really tiny specs of paint loss, but overall is really bright and vibrant and beautiful, as you can see.

The entire playfield has been recently stripped-down and cleaned/waxed.
New drop targets and new stand-up targets have been installed.
New pop bumper assemblies (I like the look of yellow and purple as opposed to the traditional blue and yellow..but the older yellow and blue will come with the game on the side).
Rebuilt flippers.
New rubbers, and post caps.
New repro plastics.
New stars on the star rollovers.
Coindoor looks great and clean and shiny.
Legs are clean and shiny.
The backbox panel has been recently painted and looks great.
All keys are accounted for (coindor and backbox).
Schematic is included.
Inside the cabinet is well-organized and very clean.

Yes, you see that right. There is a custom engraved lockdown bar done by a Pinside friend who is a metal engraver. So yup, that is a one-of-a-kind lockdown bar right there my friend. Looks great.

So, if you're looking for a sweet 2-player mid-70's Gottlieb EM that is trouble free, has been recently restored, has some unique and updated features and is ready to play, this is an excellent example of this very fun and addictive game.

Looking to sell, but will entertain trade offers.
Happy for pick-up, happy to ship if buyer organizes (but I can help with organizing shipping, if help is needed).

Thanks for looking!!!
