Well most of you know of this machine and the mountain of work it's had done. Well I'm putting it up for sale now. 

For those that don't, see here the work its had done: http://ridgeracer.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6&sid=6058a35cc0aad619c78d7ba420851095

This machine has a razor sharp, burn free screen 25" polo screen. Plays flawlessly, it has had a TON of work done even to the point of every single bolt and nut has been replaced with new ones.

Full list of work carried out:
  • Chassis refubished
  • Custom PC Power supply made to test PSU causing dots on screen and later power supply replaced with new original replacement
  • New marquee light flo bulb + starter
  • New locks all around
  • Coin doors stripped, primed and resprayed
  • Pedal panel resprayed with new bolts which are also stripped, primed and resprayed black
  • New monitor/chassis rear panel + painted black
  • New gear stick decal + complete strip down, clean and regrease
  • New exhaust fan
  • Wiring clean up and removal of dodgy connectors with proper block connectors
  • New mains filter (SCHAFFNER FN 283-6-06)
  • Mains filter bracket and mains switch bracket sanded down and resprayed
  • New coin door LED bulb
  • Pedals greased and aligned properly
  • Wooden board which hold the PCB and PSU screw hole brackets replaced
  • New screws on the PCB wooden panel
  • New screws on the marquee light panel
  • New alan key bolts all around the machine
  • Damaged wooden bars on the rear of the machine removed
  • Exterior chipboard touched up and returned to black color
  • Remaining rotten foot rest chipboard removed and T molding cut to size and fitted either side to make it look original
  • Original footboard metal plate fitted to the bottom of the cabinet to make it look original without the footrest
  • New center panel lock fitted as it was originally
  • Holes filled with flat head bolts which were also sprayed black
  • Screen alignment fixed
  • Marquee panel and control panel resprayed in red
  • New foam fitted for the control panel where the glass sits
  • Fitted metal plate for the rear lock bar, chipboard worn out causing rear door to not sit flush
  • Steering wheel center cap replaced with a nicer rare Namco center cap version (from a Rave Racer import)
  • Pedals replaced for longer reach, shiny pedals
  • HAPP steering wheel and mech replaced recently
  • Recently Namco serviced PCB (so it won't ever suffer from the no 3D issue most of these suffer from)
I'm looking for £600 which I'm aware is a little higher than a lot of these go for but this is arguably the most up together machine in the UK. Granted the foot rest isn't present but everything else is spot on and it's the only one i know of with side art that isn't totally destroyed.

Giving it a chance on here before it hits eBay.

£500, last drop before it hits eBay.

Pedals have been adjusted now so you can use it with the floor.

After your restore thread, bit confused why you're selling. Thought it was your grail.

It was but I'm moving into a flat so I have no room for it anymore.

Needs must.

I think eBay is going to be your best bet to be honest.

I can see you have put a lot of effort into making the cabinet look good, but I don't really think Ridge Racer is a sort after game.  Please correct me if I am wrong. 

So even if you had the cab at £150 you may not get any takers here.  eBay is probably a different story though.

Sorry that this is a bit of a negative :-(

No that's fine i get what you are saying. Just want to avoid eBay as the fee's are a nightmare and people tend to flip things, time waste or MAME them which would be a shame with this cab.

Still, if it comes to it... I guess i will have to.

Maybe you should have sold it to me last December like we had agreed when I had the money and the space.
The biggest unanswered question is...where is the money.
