    Default Apollo pachinko

    Has anyone else made an offer on this machine?

    My 1st thought is that it is a single ball conversion, because of the metal plate where the ball feeder in the wood frame should be.

    when looking at the back, the payout is diverted to the top tray...making it simply a front overflow. It may be a SBC, and Heiwa went the extra mile and made it to payout to top tray. That would be exceedingly cool!
    At $199.00 I can't justify it! I offered $150.00, but it wes denied. I couldn't go any higher...at my offer price, with shipping would be $185.45. Same seller that I bought the Narita from. I made the same offer for the Narita, and he accepted. I would have expected the Narita to be higher than the Heiwa.
    Very cool machine! www.ebay.com/itm/Early-Vintage-Heiwa-Apollo-Motif-Pachinko-Machine/272895394306?hash=item3f89d54202:g:rMsAAOSw9mpZ6kT Some day, if it don't sell first, and when the money is flowing better...I'll make another offer, see what happens.

    agreed, it looks to be a converted single shot..

    the seller is shortsighted to not take your offer.. its way more then i would pay..

    True...more than I typically would pay as well. Also why I poster the link. I'm not afraid of it going away, because everyone here has most likely seen it as it has been $200 for quite some time. If anyone here was willing to pay that much, it would have sold long ago. But, I do like the older machines, I especially like SBC machines and front overflows. Particularly the less common ones. The Narita...it was too cool not to offer. I had only seen pics of two, and they were here on Pachitalk. I knew I had to have one.

    It is actually a very cool machine. I only really look at the unusual ones any more. I bought another machine from him at the same offer.2050-12-31 23.59.59-140.jpg I have removed the box...and have read about these (at Pachitalk ), but never seen one. 2050-12-31 23.59.59-153.jpg If this is his selloff items...I would love to have seen his collection at it's peak!
    I have no desire to see anyone sell their stuff if they don't want to, or for less than it is worth (realistically) to them. But, happens! I'll make a similar offer someday. I wanted the Narita more...so I offered first! The Apollo is a great machine...but I offered what I REALLY wanted first!
