I couldn't help myself either. I like to go for a ride on my camel on Grange-over-Sands and get back home refreshed and play on my Bryans Bumper

Re: OLD AND THE NEW

A 1992 gsxr 1100? Far too modern. As long as you're mentioning it in relation to riding on it to visit an old penny arcade then that's fine.

Re: Spenser Bolland Road Safety identified

Stick a 1 on the front of that price and bang it on ebay, seems to be the current thing to do.

Re: Spenser Bolland Road Safety identified

I would also have bought the Steer a Coin, but it was too far away. They are quite a bargain at a couple of hundred pounds. From memory I think I bought my Road Safety (mechanical) machine for £280 and later sold it around £400 but they aren't the same beast to play at all because the playfield is t...

Re: Spenser Bolland Road Safety identified

Super heavy machine and a lot of locks. I had the mechanical version which wasn't feasible to operate as there was a series of steps to go through after inserting coin that the public simply couldn't grasp how to operate. The electromechanical version looks more simple to play.

Re: Indian Fakir Working Model

Lovely, just my kind of thing, interesting theme, likely unique model. Far more complex mechanism than first expected from the outside, my only criticism is it's a shame it wasn't of the same calibre as Canova or Lee inside the scene as the Fakir theme really lent itself to something like an ornate ...

Re: Bally/Greaves Firebell bandit

Well it won't pass muster for the bandit purists but at least it was a conversion already. I do like it, the graphics turned out really well. Good job.
Hope you saved the original glasses!

Re: Saleroom roundups

I spoke with the auctioneer before the sale and they hadn't even seen the machines in person. The vendor had been well and truly stitched up and completely believed they were authentic and had spent several thousand pounds buying them direct from the maker. I suspect they didn't sell, but £200-£400 ...

Re: Bargain Hunt BBC1 2/12/19 interview with Darren Hesketh

Fear not and don't panic! Darren has been a busy lad. Clive's machines moved out of Bygone Times earlier this year around January to make room for Darren's own machines when Botany Bay closed in February. There are two areas in Bygone Times with plenty of machines to play in both areas. The arcade a...
