UK Pinball nostalgia

"Coming soon : Sega Harley Davidson"

Still never seen one of these in the flesh (but after playing it on Pinball Arcade I suspect I'm not missing much!)
Me in 90s shell top at trade show 1989 although Id already played Banzai many times at the Associated Leisure showroom in Burton

Loughbough Uni pinball club charity weekend for children in need 1988. We called it Arc Aid and got a mention on local radio. The 3 EMs came from an advert in coin slot and took 3 hours each way to pick up from
Llanfairfechan - sat on a bench in a run down arcade with no legs. there was supposed to be a spannish eyes but someone had come from London for it alone a day before. Not bad working pins for £10 each though.

the only one of 4 congos I had that didnt get broken for the boards. Game was VERY hated. I mean REALLY hated. This one sold on eBay for £500 at the last gasp. 2000/1 was the pinball nadir.
