    Default Maruto removable back

    Picked up this Maruto IMG_20150913_205850.jpg
    Dirty, but looked to be in pretty nice shape.

    Got it home to discover that more than the ball hopper is missing. Seesaw also has been removed and appears a cyclic coversion attempted.IMG_20150913_210212.jpgIMG_20150913_210001.jpg

    Anyone happen to have a similar model that could post some pics of what it should look like unmodified? Or even a complete back from a scrap unit they would part with?

    This one could be a challenge.

    Cool wraparound front on the frame!

    Did anyone ever send you a picture of the back so you could repair it?

    No, nothing yet. I'm sure someones got one.
    I guess this would be the most important area where the seesaw was removed. IMG_20150922_190259.jpg

    My kids are a bit old for that (teens)...... and to young to appreciate the vintage.. no keyboard, no interest

    Not in a hurry, have many others to restore yet, so I have time

    May have a line on a back now from a member here, so all is well. Worst case, I will use a back from another maker and create my frankenpachi.
