Item description

This is a super clean fun unique Bally Strange Science (I smile every time I look at it:) that I just finished restoring. It turned out to be a real beauty and plays great!

All boards are super clean with no hacks or acid. All have been recapped and a remote battery holder with lithium battles installed. The Topper is all original with a non-yellowed clear plastic, really nice clean insulators plus it works perfect with original Red neon!

The playfield looks great! New Anti-Gravity and Particle Separator ramps were installed. All Comet 2SMD LEDs throughout with Warm White frosted for GI and Sunlight frosted for inserts. New flipper bats new rubber and new correct star posts also installed. All under playfield mechs we’re rebuilt and new coil sleeves installed. Pops were rebuilt and are super fast. New nylon kickers also installed.

The Cabinet is solid and looks great new side rails installed original straight coin door and mechs. Legs are clean with no rust and new levelers and bolts installed. I also installed plastic leg protectors however note that two of them cracked when I tightened the legs not noticeable but noted. Back glass is easily a 9/10.

This is a great looking and playing Strange Science it’s considered Bally’s best of the 80’s run for them and I agree! Even tho I spent a lot of hours and enjoyed working on this classic game I would consider it a restored “players” it is not perfect but one to be proud of in your collection for sure…

Please feel free to make me an offer or contact me with any questions I’m easy to work with.

Regards Don
