Any thoughts on this?
I have a friend who's looking to get his first pin and his other half has said he could spend this amount.. ;)

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/164255843668
it's got a backglass that is peeling, a free floating battery pack and I don't know what is up with the rectifier board wiring?
playfield and cabinet look ok, i'd say it was overpriced, well twice as much as i'd want to pay for it, if I am wrong i'm sure someone will correct me.

Spot on, no correction required.
Those Bell Games conversions were truly awful the cabinets were clad in metal that goes rusty which in my book is worse than a faded decals. Depending on the Playfield and condition of the boards in the back I would not give more than £500 ~£600 for it. Maybe, just maybe, the original 8 ball deluxe case is under the cladding and it the PF is good it may be worth converting back to the classic game!

I have a High Speed that circumstances dictate I have to sell, much as I love the game.
Cab is a bit tatty but I have decals ready to fit.
Brand new CPR plastic set not fitted, although some have already been replaced and are all pretty good.
Pf has age related marks outside the mylar.
Fully LEDed (?) and fully working. Top of pf stripped and cleaned last year.
Looking for £1400 or thereabouts.
Any viewing welcome and pics available if it tickles you friend's fancy.

I told him to wait it out and join the forum. So give it a few weeks 🤣

Definitely much better to get into ownership through this community

Wow that backglass... That's what I think it is? 😳

I have an original Eight Ball he can have for 2/3 of that price.
I'll let him know, he might have realised he was feeling impulsive though but an offer like that might get him interested again!
