I'm 52 now (so they tell me! :D ) Can you send me that document we talked about matey? That machine is performing beautifully by the way, I prefer the action on the Gunter Wu...

Greaves Amusements Story PT2

Some time ago I provided some historical information regarding the Leicester company Greaves Amusements. I've known the Greaves family since I was about 10 years old when they were re-manufacturing Bally bandits (actually they weren't officially endorsed by the Bally Corporation and Bally didn't tak...
