Item description

For Sale: A very nice example of a Bally classic - Mata Hari. A full tear-down, bulletproofing, and extensive shop job, was just completed - the game looks great, and plays 100%.

The work completed is as follows:

- Solenoid driver board: all electrolytic capacitors replaced, display voltage reduced to ~170, three recommended updates/bulletproofing-mods completed, and all pins inspected and re-flowed as needed;

- MPU fully inspected/bench tested - all pins inspected and re-flowed as needed;

- Previously installed MPU remote battery removed - memory-function restored with a Pinitech NVRAM;

- All display connector pins inspected/re-flowed as needed;

- Complete top-side teardown - all posts soaked/hand-scrubbed;

- All playfield & backbox GI lighting replaced with Comet Warm White LED's (feature lights/flashers still incandescent);

- Playfield extensively cleaned, polished, and waxed;

- All new rubbers installed;

- New ball installed;

- All new post-cap nylon nuts installed;

- All game fuses replaced with new, and correct value/burn.

Please review the pictures for additional condition details and don't hesitate to reach out with any questions, or if you would like to see supplementary photos with any specific detail. Some minimal insert wear in the typical areas is present, but for those of you who know this title, it is VERY minimal as compared to most, and the pin shows very well. The original backglass is as close to mint as you will find, and the cabinet is bright and un-faded. The coin door & metalwork on this machine is as clean, and nice as I have ever seen on one of these old Bally's.

The game is located in Central Pennsylvania, just off I-80. Pickup is highly preferred, but shipping is not out of the question if the buyer makes all arraignments, and payment-in-full has cleared my account before the game leaves my possession. I can also recommend a very reasonable amusements shipper I use, and have had good luck with, who can usually move pins to most any door east of the Mississippi for ~$275.
