Loving this thread. I must admit, this and buggy boy were my two fave games in the 80’s. I saw this on eBay but chickened out!! You’re doing a fine job. Good luck with it.

That instruction card is cool. Do you have to wear a helmet and race overalls when playing the game

It's not my work, but I can certainly print one up for you die-cut to the original shape.

I have been doing some welding. The cover plate needed lots of bending and straightening out to make it fit the steering box, wanted to make sure it all fitted nicely together and flush with the machine before i got it grit blasted and powder coated, It was finished last night and collected this morning along with the PCBs to go to the clinic.












 

 I’ve taped all the external threads and important shafts and screwed sacrificial bolts into all the threaded holes to save them from the blaster.

Nice!

Was just thinking - the instruction plate tells you it's got a push button jump (via grey paint), but the original plate says to grip the handle to jump. That implies something's been bodged in the past (sorry if this has already been mentioned somewhere in the thread).

Yes the operator just fitted a cheap button to the left side of the bars rather than fixing the broken pot inside, you can see the button in the early pictures.

Shot in the dark here ,does any one know a friendly arcade enthusiast in the states who would be willing to buy this on my behalf ( funds sent over first)

 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Handlebar-controller-for-Sega-ENDURO-RACER-motorcycle-racing-arcade-game/171571636299?hash=item27f277684b:g:VMAAAMXQsmFReJOj

Strip it down, ditch most of it and send me the rest, don't need the bars themselves or the heavy box.
Im short of a few hard to find bits, after posting above about the button, i realise that the pot and the important pinion is missing so i am gonna be stuck. ill have to have a crappy jump button too!

Frazer, give Arcade Boneyard a try. They might have the specific bits that you are after.

Or Breaking Dad on jamma+ seems like a friendly American! I think he might have sorted postage for other people in the past.

Restoration Update!

Muddymusic is on the case and had already sorted the handlebar decal and the number 19 on the seat, hopefully he is going to make the yellow decal on the bezel too.

Mark Haysman from Retro Clinic is all over my board... WOW he sends me hourly updates and at the moment the main board is back in business but using his CPU board , he is going to try my CPU board later and switch the suicide processor. some of the wording from him below !

"the object section seems to only be requesting 2 of 8 addresses from the object ROMs"
"faults in the objects post render, and in the background layers"

some of the pictures he has sent me:







You can imagine the last picture put a smile on my face!

Grit blasting - still waiting..

Monitor chassis - hoping someone can help clarify which one i have so i can order a kit ( above)

Parts to complete my handle bar setup -In the process of persuading Anthony from Quarter Arcade in the states to slim down a set he has and send me the bits i am missing like the cables and the pots inside. Buy the complete thing, but just have the light parts sent to me

Your always welcome, give me a shout if you come down to Dorset, you can play my Sega Rally and Moon Cresta too! Robotgreg is a 4 minute walk from me, he has pinballs to blow your mind, he always welcomes like minded enthusiasts too. (have to check  obviously but he seems a great guy)

Look what just arrived! i guess ill be spraying black paint tonight, not sure what colour, black obviously but gloss or satin??, has to match the coin door which is gloss at the moment, I’m going to have the door blasted any way so i can choose either way, i do have lots more spray gloss hammerite but that shouldn’t dictate what i choose i know. Perhaps build it up with coats of gloss black then finish off the last coat with satin?...

Update from Mark at Retro Clinic, sound board is dead "real dead" in his words and he said he will continue tomorrow, he didn't mention that i had to get another one, perhaps just warning me it wont be a quick job and the cost may spiral up a bit.
