Hi there,

I've got a few project cabs and this keeps slipping to the bottom of the list, so I'm considering moving this on. Smile

It's a generic 'Video Game' cab produced by C.D.A. Electronic.  The cab is solid, but has been stored in a barn and needs a complete going over.  I haven't switched it on, but assume the chassis requires a rebuild.

At some point rotary controllers have been fitted.  The yellow rotary top is missing on the left stick.  Each stick 'clicks' at 45 degree increments as they should.

The metal work is rusty and will require repainting.

Inside the cab were manuals for the monitor and Guerrilla War.

I got three rotary boards from the Op - Ikari Warriors and two Guerrilla War boards.  The boards are in very clean condition, but unfortunately all three are dead.  These boards will be included with the cab.

Here are some pics.












Valuations would be appreciated. Smile

I'd gladly take that at £200 dude. I've had 3 dedicated rotary cabs and they've all gone, Midnight Resistance is one of my fave games ever and got a couple of other rotary pcbs here too with nothing to play them on. The boards are a nice little extra to get with the cab and make it worth getting them repaired at that price.

If separate the lots.

£200 seems well under valued with all those boards.

Hence people jumping at it.

Yeah, 200 is far too cheap for what's offered, even if the boards are dead, 100+ the cab, same for the boards, same again for the sticks etc.

It's all broken though guys. Monitor needs work, cabinet is rusty, bits missing from sticks and 3 completely dead boards. I don't think the £200 values are too silly.

18 months ago you could buy brand new rotary sticks from arcadeshop.de for 65 euros a piece.

In the right hands (many here) that's not a lot of expense to fix up though, and the dead boards could be as simple as the psu beign borked, there's no mention of how they were tested.

Start at at least £300/350 and see how the interest goes, you can always lower but you cant go up in price!

This is exactly it.

Probably a 70 job to get the monitor working. Then you’ve got a cab which with a replacement stick top probably worth £350.

Then you’ve got a load of boards which would go for about £100 in their own right.

So if you’re saying £200. That means you send the chassis off to Grant & £70 later you have a minimum of £450 worth of stuff even if you don’t get a board working.

If you can get those boards up there’s probably £700 worth of gear here. If you can’t and get the monitor serviced. £450

Obviously, this is worth at least $1,000,000.

At the end of the day it’s worth what someone is willing to pay. If I had room, time, and lack of projects myself I’d probably pay £300

Jase is always selling stuff cheap on the forum. So be good to see him getting a decent deal here.

My logic is based on the fact I’ve been sold and seen dead cabs on here before valued at around £175 when I was a rookie. So I just can’t see how a cab needing a chassis service and 3 boards is only worth £25 more.

But then maybe that’s a different issue.

Either way, good luck with whoever picks it up & with the sale.

I’m sure Olly would make a lovely job of it.

£300 is fair imo, considering the work needed and repair costs. You’d be £600 deep at least by the time it’s restored with 2 working games.

Maybe it's my age, but I'm much more cynical/pessimistic. A lot Ifs, Maybes and Probablys don't count for much. Personally, I see a nice little cab, but with a lot of work and (almost certainly) expense to get it in shape.

Love the artwork on that cab, very late 80s/early 90s. What are measurements?  Tough to value, yes parts are worth money on their own, but I would have thought realistically £200 considering the sticks are going to need repair etc and it likely does not work.  Perhaps up to £250 with the 3 boards as a good forum price. Would be nice to see it remain a Rotary cab rather than have a 1000 in 1 shoved in it.

300 for cab and games
Minus 200 for pcb repairs
Minus 100 for monitor
Minus 100 for bits
Minus 100 for bobs

Total of minus 200

So the seller should offer the buyer 200 quid to take it away. That's mathematics people.
