Anyway let’s draw a line under it. No laws we’re broken and no puppies were killed.

Um yeah okay why not. I value it at £600 LOL

I bought centipede for £100
Screen has fault
Pcb has
faulty

Tack ball needs
Replacing

Not from a vac member I bought it from eBay.

It sounds harsh but I want
To sell it for as much as I can get.
I bought it and traveld a long way took a day of work to get it.
And so did a friend.
The money I receive when I do eventually sell it maybe not for years,
And I plan on fixing it first.
But the funds will be going into another cab and a good chance to another vac member as i will be reinvesting
In another cab.    

I’m flipping yes
But only really slowly and really enjoying my centipede.
But when the time is right.. and I sell it will be to another arcade
Owners gain. Thus this is the circle of arcade life...
I find it hard to believe that anyone who sees something for sale for a good price
Should refuse the sale on grounds of ridicule?
The seller chooses sale price- it is nice when something goes to someone who will love and cherish and
Much happiness comes from playing it. And I agree profit can be ugly but I think it’s what is the profit going to be used for that ultimately counts ? If I can find anothe broken cab and use the funds to fix it and put it working back out into the wild, arcade cafe surly that is a good cause..   hey eventually I do not have the money to keep doing this self employed struggle to pay rent ( and I spend way more than I care to share fixing arcade ) loosing money left right and center.....    blowing chassi - pcb repairs that don’t even fix the prob we’ve all been there because we love the hobby.....   fuel for travels... long pick ups...
My point is to other flippers like me that carry the stigmata - re invest it like me into the restoration of original cabs..
And keep the flame burning....    my point is when people jumped all over giving me a dressing down when I wanted to sell for profit... I think it’s what we do with the money that really counts..
Fair enough if I take it out of the restoration program but if not I’m just self funding my own arcade restoration program

Buying a cheap Centipede from ebay with faulty screen / pcb / controls, fixing it up and selling for what it's worth is the opposite to flipping. It's restoration of a classic and is God's work.

Not fixing it and then trying to sell it for £1800 would be the work of someone with the stigmata though.

I’m not accusing anyone of being a flipper but wouldn’t a good solution to the problem of it happening be to list the names of people who do it in a flipper thread.

Then sellers can make an informed decision as to whether to sell to them with the knowledge it is likely to be turned for a profit.

Also buyers could avoid buying from them to discourage the act.

Just do what so many others on here do and use eBay for flipping and stop selling on the forums altogether I’ve seen so many boards bought here and reappear on eBay sometimes in as little as a couple of weeks for £££ .. there was regulars who always sold there stuff on here but haven’t listed anything in months. I suspect it’s because they are looking for top dollar or else they fear someone else will buy and do the same, it’s a vicious circle but as said earlier eBay is where you go if your looking for profits, forum is where you go to help others out and share your love of the hobby, no place for the money men on a hobbyist forum like this but unfortunately impossible to prevent them coming on here either.

Oh look, the sh*t stirrer is opening his mouth, shame you don't get banned!!

The item is the sellers and his to do as he wishes, he's had it a year by the looks of it and they may have gone up in price, the original seller was content with the offer at the end of the day.

Stop ruining this place and STFU!Ouch

Grow up.

I was giving Clive some advice so he wouldn't get a warning/ban.

I've not made any comments on a sales thread since Milky asked despite what's still going on with the same sellers (not OP).

John's (OP) a good guy imo and has his reasons for the sale/price

John (Zoopster) is a very cool guy and I've done deals with him many times in the past. He usually sells his stuff much cheaper than the market value. Just something to consider since I've dealt with him many times in the past and he's been a real gent and professional when doing business with him.

I can echo that statement John is a top geezer, we've bought and sold off each other for years. Fair play I say, that original deal was a year ago and like it or not everything retro is going north at a crazy pace!

I only went that low as it was going to be loved, treasured pride of place.

Now it’s back at £800. Maybe if anyone offers £600 he’ll accept as that’s what others are expected to do.

Finished on £862!!! I wouldn't be happy paying that price, in fact I would rather put my money into a dedicated cab or something. A wooden box more expensive than a coffin Tongue
