Awesome, I guess a fully restored comes with a hefty pricetag?

Very well done. That is not a purchase, it's an investment.  :) I know, because I just sold one for much more, so be careful with the game.

You said fully restored, does that mean that the artwork is stencilled again, or is it vinyl?

Oh, and I wouldn't abuse the dog in that way.  ;D

Hi guys,
here is a little more about the story behind....
I sold the cab to Kick, it was from my private collection.
He told me it is his dream cab and was looking for a long time for this one and so on.
So he bought it at the End of August for a really fair price. So wat can I tell? Lessons learned!!!
About 4 weeks later he has sold the cab again ... for 2500€!
I know it, because the new owner contacted me if I’m selling other cabs....

So just as a information for you guys ....

His dreams are cheap if they are not worth 2500 euros.
Someone talked about investment... this is a 120ish % ROI over 3 months.
The guy is a real businessman.  :(
Dreaming of a Namco Galaxian waiting in a barn for me... somewhere! A Nintendo Sheriff would also make me happy. And a SNK Sasuke Vs Commanders or a SEGA Samurai... Argh too many; in fact!
