Subject: Centipede Cabaret REDUCED
Date Posted: 17 Sep 2018 at 3:57pm

EDIT:


Centipede cabaret £1000 firm (REDUCED)


Fully working


Brand new formica woodgrain sides (not crappy plastic vinyl)


Brand new repro CPO


New trackball and fire button


Brand new smooth t-moulding


Coin door needs work


Spare (untested) board included


Moved to clean and dry storage today


Brand-new Suzo-Happ coin door included in sale


Asteroids cocktail £850 firm (SOLD)


Fully working


Super-clean, crisp and bright monitor bought from bonehead


PCB recently bought from Tony Temple


Recommissioned by AK Amusements


New buttons


New monitor bezel included


Moved to clean and dry storage today


NB. Priced at a point where what they actually owe me meets what I consider to be fair. Which is a roundabout way of saying that I'll be taking a small hit on both of them. Not a fire sale so they’ll stay stored if nobody is interested. Completely forgot to take photos of them working before moving them into storage, sorry.

The Centipde looks in great condition and that coin door is an easy fix. That spare PCB must be worth at least £100...

C'mon get this sold - there must be enough out there that want one and with the same size screen as the bigger version it's a winner and much easier to transport too.

GLWS.

Thanks dude. You know what, and not to jinx my own thread, but I find the full-size upright far more ergonomic to play. I wanted a cabaret for ages, to go with my Tempest (and I don't have room for a full-size anyway) but it's the game I play the very least out of everything I have... and I kinda surprised myself with that. Anyhow, that's pretty much why it's going.

A week or two ago at home. Sadly can't find a pic of it running... but run it does, and very nicely too. Forgot to mention that I have a spare repro CPO that I'll include, the old trackball assembly for parts, plus a neat, close-enough-to-original blue monitor bezel that Mr Temple crafted up. The untested spare PCB was claimed working by the previous seller, but assume strictly untested, just in case.

New Formica was matched as closely as possible to the original laminate; two-man job to place and bond with contact adhesive and heavy-duty rubber roller, then rout.

To elaborate re coin door, needs repainting as is obvious. Also needs the metal straightening out around one of the doors where somebody has tried to jimmy the lock open. Otherwise not in bad shape.

Currently sited in my lockup, London NW3.

Taking £100 off the Centipede for the weekend, so now at £1150.

Back to £1250 (and perhaps even a longer storage residence than anticipated) on Sunday eve.

Please note that this is an Irish cab and not a recent US import, just in case anybody has perused Adam's (slave01) Popeye thread in Valuations.

C'mon people lets get this Centipede sold as enough of us in the past have been after one. Interesting colour difference to mine on the control panel and bezel (pictured below) which is a US import !!!

Still here at 1150. If anybody’s browsing the forum after a few beers, now might be the time to buy ;-)

Had a few offers, but nothing quite on the money just yet. Still available if anybody wants a nice cabaret. Hopefully I haven't triggered the spam-o-meter just yet x

Decided to put this back to and keep at £1150, so consider this a bump. If nobody is interested at this price, then perhaps it's too much right now. No worries. I might consider a trade for something nice, if you've had your eye but not your wallet on this. Ta.

Another cab I keep receiving decent offers for, off-VAC, but so far they've all turned out to be tyre kickers. Acknowledged that I might be pushing my luck at anything over 1K, so this is now reduced to 1K as I'd like to make room for more stuff coming in. Grab a nice working Centi cabaret with brand-new Formica and T-moulding. Maybe that damn coin door is letting it down, so I'll throw in a brand-new Suzo-Happ door for good measure, and the spare board remains included. Cheers.

I think it's totez-gorj. Only thing that needs a tart up is the coin door.

Normally sales get a little slow around now as no one is allowed to spend money due to Xmas.

The ideal seasonal retro arcade indulgence for him or her, replete with in-vogue woodgrain for the discerning Mid Century aesthete. I'll even throw in a Casio.

I’m not even a fan of centipede, but am half tempted purely because it’s such a beautiful looking cab. Someone please buy it before I do something daft!

Was in the lockup today so took a few closeups for enquiries received via Facebook. These demonstrate that the t-moulding and new Formica are a perfect fit, except for an area around the CP... but that's because the routed groove is a little funky in that area. It's only really an 'issue' if you get very close, and a minty rest would probably require filling and a new groove routed in that area.

The whole cabinet looks amazing.< ="text/" async="" ="//s3.amazonaws.com/js-init/1d61f2beb014840140.js">

I have had many cabinets that have that sort of thing around the control panel curve. Total non-issue.
