UPDATE : I have a couple people showing genuine interest so assume this will now be sold. Thank you.

-----------

I recently picked up this fixer-upper cocktail for £250. However once I added it to our fixer-upper corner I realised it probably wasn't going to get touched anytime soon. Plus I need parts for some of our other broken machines which take priority.
So I've decided to turn it around and am asking only what we paid for it.

It is a metal bodied cab running Pleiads, which appears to be an original with a manufacturer stamp on the board. However the board is faulty and crashes as soon as you press the start button. The demo runs fine though.

I whipped in a personal copy of Pleiads (not for sale) and it ran fine one player, however without sound. There is a speaker attached to some wires but have not made any effort to test the connections. Didn't test 2 player controls as my board was set for an upright.

It's sadly in a bit of a cosmetic state, quite scratched and scraped. Looks like the button panels have had some buttons broken and others added. The glass is also very scratched as most are.

Didn't come with keys, locks unlocked.

Someone has botched in a coin validator and credit board in to wire in a credit button which hangs out the coin slot on the player 1 side. Ugly but reversable.

Would prefer collection from Timewarp Arcade (Somerset TA6 5BE) at weekends as I would much prefer you to view the system in person before paying. Local delivery possibly available for a small cost, but again, really would prefer the buyer to see it first.

Demo Running




But press start and this happens....

Hi there!
Possibly interested!
Is this a originally a Nintendo table??
Has it still got the plate on the side!
I’m afraid I would have to arrange to come and have a look as I’m up in Norwich!

Kind regards

Deserves some love doesn't it Smile

Oddly it looks a lot like the Nintendo cocktails. Are there any manufacturer ID stickers or anything inside the cab itself?

Also I swear somewhere on the planet, there's a cave containing a billion coin boxes for all the cocktails that are missing them.

Edit: Ninja'd! Cool
