Item description

Thinking about selling or trading my 1980 Black Knight. It's in very nice shape overall. I'm open to most games, so let me know what you have.

A little background: I originally got my Black Knight from a Pinsider in Lincoln named ArnieC, who did all the board work and did a remote-battery install. Since buying it, I shopped it out, put on new drop-target decals, and tweaked a few things. It's working 100% and plays really nice.

Cosmetically, it's the nicest Black Knight that I've seen for sale in the region since I started looking about 6 months ago. It's not restored or anything, but there is minimal to no wear on the playfield (not even on top of the magna-saves). Cabinet has a few dings and scrapes, but looks pretty nice overall. It has a CPR replacement backglass. The worst thing I can say about it appearance-wise, is that there is some very ancient ball-swirl visible in the lighter areas of the playfield. It's pretty light, so I'm not sure how well it photographs. Honestly, I think the swirls blend in pretty well with the original art, and I actually kinda like how they look. But your mileage may vary!

Let's see, what else can I think of? It's got LEDs for the GI, and incandescent bulbs for the inserts. Sound and displays are both good. And the original coin-mechs and box are also included and working well. Flippers are working well and strong for 25volts.
Also, BK has a surprising amount of setup options in the service menu for a 1980 game. You can tweak the ball-locks, 2-player bonus round, sounds and music, and all kinds of stuff. Pretty cool.

Any other questions on condition or function, feel free to ask. I'd much rather over-disclose than under-disclose! I check my email/pinside all the time, so I'll get back to you quick.
