We are dead after this day, sadly we didnt go to the warehouse, but I might have a hook on another rare old game.

One pic tonight, the rest in the near future

Sorry boys, Today the lads helped me move cabinets before they took the train home to Gothenburgh and after that I had family business and a football game to take care of... might get time later tonight.

Games are (from left to right): Super Bug, Space Attac(k), Canyon Bomber. The Space Attac has likely been a ball-and-paddle game at some point. There is a small sticker taped over the word "balls" on the instructions on the bezel. I am guessing it was a Breakout. It has an original Sega/Gremlin PCB but a bootleg marquee "Space Attac" (without a K at the end).

These cabinets were designed by Cherryföretagen in Sweden. Either they were based on Atari blueprints for the "Atari theatre kiosk" or they predated/inspired the Atari theatre kiosk. Some of the parts seem to be from France, and it could be the case that the cabinets were assembled by Atari France entirely. During this time period, however, Cherry did assemble cabinets in Sweden too. Anyway, there's a small text in french printed on the bezel glass (some stamp from a manufacturer I think), and one of them has an Atari Europe monitor chassis, two of them have some other chassis that I have yet to identify but that is the same as in my french built Gran Trak 20.

In any case, Swedish/European arcade history :)
