Aristocrat - a rough price?

Postby maestro66uk » Mon Jan 08, 2018 12:08 pm

Hi all.
Happy new year to all members.

Well, I'm still very happy with my Aristocrat Olympic. No problems at all since I bought her, stripped her down and totally refurbished her 2 years ago.

The guy I bought the machine from has asked if I'd like to work on another machine he has. He wants me to take it and spend my time on it and bring it back to life. The problem is the machine is REALLY in a bad way. Totally rusted. It's gonna take a very long time and money to get this thing back to its original standard.

My question is, how much does an average condition fully working Aristocrat sell for these days? This is just to give me an idea of costs to see if it would be worthwhile refurbishing this other machine. I fear it may just be sold for parts.

It cost me £120 to have all chrome parts of mine re-chromed two years ago, so that's not an issue. I just need a rough price of what these machines are worth in average condition.

That's a good price for chrome. Would you be interested in sharing the chromer info? I would expect it to be about £300 plus easy.
An Aristocrat, I would say, is 500 very tops depending on model etc.

There are numerous Aristocrat sales recorded in the Arena, some very tidy looking ones in the £250 range. A couple of desirable Clubmasters sold for £500 and £600 at Coventry in November.

He mentions the machine, an Olympic, which is like a Arcadian. I have seen at Elephant the highest was 360, average good probably around 220 to 250 and needing work 50 to 150

I'm not a member of the "Arena" page, therefore I can't view anything.

This is the company in Leeds, West Yorkshire I used for the chrome plating.

Agbrigg chroming haha
Your keen mate I know why he is cheap now.
He destroyed loads of my parts and never even as much as an apology for hundreds of pounds worth of damage, he even tried to charge me for the pleasure, good luck to anyone who wants to use inexperienced chromers like Sean longbottom, don't say I never told you so !THUMBS!

But thanks for sharing
