1999 Sega Harley Davidson - Restoration

Check List When Buying A Pinball

Pinball

This is a quick restoration of a Harley Davidson. Once the above picture is a full shot of the game, this will signify the game is completely restored.

The pictures have been taken with the glass off to get a better picture.

This game comes with a manual.

item Click on the Internet Pinball Database logo to the left. This is a GREAT resource to find out about the machine, see pictures, see reviews and download the rule sheet if one exists for the game. This provides additional insights into playing the game.

The batteries were corroded. I took the battery holder off the board and used velcro to attach to the right side of the cabinet. Thankfully no corrossion on the board.

 

item

Here is a photo with the game turned off and everything attached to the playfield before I start to take everything off. Note the drop target that is up on the left is missing a decal. Those have been ordered. All the controlled lights work. Most of the GI lights are out so the game is not much brighter turned on at the moment.

 

item

I thought that I would have to take off the wire ramp first. But it will actually come off after the plastic ramp.

 

item

This plastic, which is under the plastic ramp, would need to be removed before the wire ramp is removed since the nuts are below this.

 

item

Whenever I remove ramps, I first label all connectors that go below the playfield with numbers. I buy a book of number from 1 to 45 from Home Depot (electrical department). Since I also use these decals on connectors on the boards, I start labelling connectors under the playfield from 45 on down since connector numbers never get this high on the boards. Each number has 7 decals. 6 are together with a cut in the middle. I put 3 on one connector, 3 on the other side of the connector. I put the single decal near the hole that the connector goes through the play field to ensure I put it back in the right position. Note that three connectors go through the hole on the left side of the under side of the play field shown to the left of the metal ramp and green ribbon cable.

Optional DescriptionMore connectors at the bottom right.

 

item

Before the plastic ramp can be removed, the small plastic where the 2 wires go under needs to be removed.

item

Pulling the connector from the right side.

 

item

You can see this ramp has 7 connectors. I was able to lift up and pull out under the wire ramp. I place it on the floor for safe keeping. This will be cleaned later. The flasher bulbs will be replaced with LEDs. The small dots on the paper are the screws I removed and labelled where they go back in.

This multi layer plastic can now be removed to expose the nuts holding the wire ramp.

Below the plastic, there are two washers that will need to be removed so they dont fall off if I lift the play field. Note that all the lights are burnt out.

 

item

Plastic reinstalled with bright lights and clean.

Looks like this flasher stayed on too long and burned the wood. I will test this after I finish all the work and ensure it does not stay on.

item

I have replaced the LEDs, rubbers and putting the plastic back on. I lined up the small broken area of the plastic to the main plastic.

 

item

Not great. But I taped the plastics together. This should hold. But it is exposed and can be fixed up as needed in the future.

 

item

Plastic replaced with cleaned bumpers and blue lights. The two posts behind teh scoop will be removed later to add a Cliffy protector. The owner will come this weekend to assist with finishing up the work and learning some. PLus I will count on his Bond-O skills to fix up the area around the scoop before we add the Cliffy protector for better stability and wear.

 

item

Looks nice.

item

Top view. I still need to adjust the left flipper. Note that it is drooping a bit.

Virginia Sales Tax

Virginia sales tax is currently 6.0%. Sales tax for in-state orders applies to machines and parts. It does not apply to the delivery or repair services.

Warranty

As of August 1, 2014, we will no longer provide a warranty with our pinballs unless you purchase a separate warranty from us. A 1 year warranty is $500 or pay as you go if you even need it. If you buy it directly from us and take it home yourself, you will be inspecting it to ensure it works. If we deliver, we will ensure that it works 100% when delivered.

Reasons You Should Let Us Deliver Your Pinball (or Another Machine)

  1. We will NOT provide a warranty for the machine since we cannot be assured that a problem did not happen when you transported the machine. (As of August 1, 2014, we will no longer provide a warranty with our pinballs unless you purchase a separate warranty from us. A 1 year warranty is $500 or pay as you go if you even need it. If you buy it directly from us and take it home yourself, you will be inspecting it to ensure it works. If we deliver, we will ensure that it works 100% when delivered.)
  2. We take responsibility for any damage that may occur during the delivery process.
  3. We professionally set up the machine, connect all the connectors, attach the legs, head, etc. and ensure that the pinball works properly. If anything is out of adjustment due to moving the machine, we can fix it in a few minutes as compared to having to come to your house later and charging you a trip fee and repair charge.
  4. If anything major is out of adjustment, we can order parts and repair. This hardly ever happens but it could and you and the machine are protected.

Delivery Options

We are currently set up for local delivery only within the Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, and North-Eastern West Virginia area. If you are interested in shipping the pinball machine, we will contact a shipper. You will pay all crating and postage costs.

If you would like us to deliver and set up within 50 miles of Purcellville, the charge is $300; within 100 miles $475. The delivery charge includes delivery to a first floor or basement level if walk-out.

We will not sell you a game/deliver the game if the only entrance to your basement is an inside the house staircase. They are too narrow. Plus we have to ensure we don't mess up carpet or wood. It just isn't worth it.

You may also come and pick up the machine from our location.
