Item description

I have a mostly working Gottlieb Caveman I'd like to trade or sell at Pinfest. This is a rare unusual pinball hybrid. Very cool game! I was going to go through it and fix all the issues but just ran out of time, so figured I'd throw it up here to see if anyone was interested in a trade.

The good:
-It works! Seriously, both the pinball portion and the video game portion work and the the two communicate with each other. These machines are notorious for issues with the game going back and forth between modes but this one is working fine and has never had an issue with that.
-Condition is overall very nice, there's a few nicks here and there.
-Inserts have LEDs. I change the GI back to incandescent because I liked the look, but I can change it back if you prefer.
Monitor colors/clarity are very nice and crisp.

The Bad:
-Something is wrong with the soundboard. It plays Caveman sounds, but at the wrong times. I also have never heard it talk
-The vari-targets need to be cleaned, they're not resetting all the way.
-The power switch is broken, I've just been plugging it in
-Some minor playfield touch up mostly in the black.
-There's a little bit of monitor bend at the top (see pic) but it reduces a bit after the game warms up.

I'll be at Pinfest both days and am looking for trades first, but will consider selling outright. I'm looking for the following:

Bone Busters
Operation Thunder
Haunted House
Anything from the 80s
