Item description

Up for sale is my fully restored award winning Flash Gordon. This was restored in 2016. I am only selling to free up some cash for an upcoming home remodel. This is one of the nicest Flash Gordon machines you will find, outside of a HEP restore.

I documented most of the restoration on this game, and it can be found here:
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/from-trash-gordon-to-flash-gordon-my-restoration

Here’s the details:
New CPR pf (silkscreened from one of their early runs)
Original backglass in fantastic condition
New MPU (nvram.weebly)
Rebuilt power supply
New apron & shoot gauge
All topside metal chrome plated
Coin door, side rails, lock bar chrome plated
All interior metal parts re-zinc plated
Legs & bolts powder coated black gloss
Comet retro warm white
New lamp sockets, new lamp braid
All mechanisms disassembled, rebuilt with new components when available
Custom coin door inserts
Plays fast and mean, as Flash Gordon should

Minor Issues:
I’ve added an extra rubber ring at the top ball guide, to aim the ball better at the mini flipper.
Once in a while the sound board does not start with the game. A quick flip of the power switch corrects this. Maybe one-in-ten times it does this, but thought I would mention.

I really am sad to sell this, as it was my goal to have the four best Bally games lined up, fully restored (Fathom, Centaur, EBD, Flash Gordon). But it’s taken me too long to get the others restored, so here it is for sale.

Shipping could be available (at buyers expense), but I’d be really nervous to do so, based on the amount of chrome on this game.
