Re: Sega Monaco restoration

Re: Calling Bryans Forks Experts!

I don’t mate, other than I know he wanted his machines to look mint, and they did. I bought one and still have it and happy, not a Allwin mind. I am sure all the streamlined cases were new from memory, but maybe someone will correct me.
