Should I buy this Astro Cab?

http://www.neo-geo.com/forums/showthread.php?t=207270

I was probably going to try and haggle down the price a bit. I only know a little bit about arcade machines so I am not too sure if it would be worth it for what I am going to need to buy for it. If it’s worth the money I do think it would be a great way to learn about cabinets and all their parts/components as I fix it up.

thanks

It’s not bad for a fix er upper. If i were still in the market for one of those I’d pick it up ASAP!.

Thanks, would the appropriate monitor for the cabinet be hard to come by?


#4

yes, they are really hard to find. I still am in the market for one, for the one I am currently still restoring. Kinda stopped due to the weather and lack of motivation from the screen being so hard to find.

In that case, I think I may wait until I can find something that costs more but is in better condition. Mainly because of the monitor.


#6

That is actually a really good price. If you can jump on it then go for it. Buying a cab that looks that good in the body with a perfect monitor will run you three times as much.

For $200 I would get it just for the control panel. :razz:

200$! Hell yeah you should buy it!
