Item description

1980 Williams BLACK KNIGHT pinball machine. Excellent condition. Very little wear on the playfield - much nicer than most other BLACK KNIGHT pinball machines out there. In fact, the Magna-Save circle near the left outlane is in perfect shape with no wear, while the right Magna-Save has only a tiny pinhead-size spot in the center. Plastics are all excellent to near mint/mint. Backglass is excellent. No stickers on the drop targets. The lower bank of three drop targets often works perfectly; however, sometimes one or two of the targets are hit but don't register, while at other times, one or two of the targets will register without being hit. Sound works perfectly, and the doorbell also operates perfectly. There's an extra button that's on the front of the cabinet just below the credit button; I don't know what this extra button does but it doesn't seem to have any effect on the game. The game has some sort of aftermarket MPU board, although there are no tags or manufacturer's I.D. on it. The score displays seem to have a "ripple" effect; all of the digits on all of the displays ripple from left to right (sort of like "the Wave"), but all of the displays work perfectly. I don't know if this ripple is generated by the MPU board or whether there is some adjustment to change the displays to a normal appearance. This seems to be some of attract feature, not a defect. All keys, manual and schematic are here. Cabinet is in nice shape, with a few scrapes and scuffs from normal handling over the last 40 years. Machine is in the basement, and must be removed by the buyer. Payment must be in CASH ONLY at time of pickup; no other forms of payment will be accepted. Sold on a first come, first served basis. Thanks for reading!
