pinball nameDBmanufactureris it for sale?notespictures
CENTRAL PARK Gottlieb (USA)Sold Unrestored, but appears to be working fine. Needs a good shop job. Cabinet fair, backglass good, but not great. Would sell.  
EMBRYON Bally (USA)Sold   
NIGHT RIDER Bally (USA)Sold Game is just cleaned (Jan. '18). It' s in pretty good shape overall, but does show some wear. A lot of the parts were rusted, so I've cleaned much of that as best I could. All new lamp sockets, playfield stripped and cleaned with new rubber. Chime box rebuilt. All coils/switches/lamps work fine. Cabinet is in really good shape, and the backglass is mint. Comes with coin box/manual/extra set of rubber.
STRANGE SCIENCE Bally (USA)Sold  Cabinet is an easy 9.5 out of 10. New Particle ramp installed. Playfield an 8 out of 10, but overall really nice. Playfield wear is not in noticable spots, and you really have to look for it. Full shop job completed Nov. 2011.
