Selling Aruze Harley Machine... What price to ask? MD 21014

Post Author: tstizzle » Mon May 16, 2011 1:59 pm

Hello,
I acquired this machine at a storage auction and have no desire to keep it.
I would like to know what is a fair asking price (range) for this machine???
From all I can tell from playing it, it appears to be fully functional and in good condition. Plastics still have protective coverings on them etc. A few hundred tokens included. The back stamp reads ARUZE 124811 2000 (2)
Thank you in advance for the assistance.Image

Here's the link to the REAL Harley Davidson pachislo which is a definite collector's machine worth a lot.
http://www.pachislodb.com/db-HARLEY+DAVIDSON.html
Yours is a custom aftermarket where the belly glass and reels have been changed. It was worth more beforehand to those who have collections, and probably wouldn't want it at all now.
The machine is a 1999 to a 2001 model I'd say, possibly the 1999 Fireworks.
Value with the tokens and both door & reset keys: Less than $100, except to a Harley fan as their 1st machine.
Wait for some more opinions.
To play or not to play, that is the question.

From what I've seen on the back of my games, the 2000 would be the year.
If there is a Harley dealer in your town, touch base with them. Pass it off as a contest machine where they give a token for each dollar spent in hopes of hitting it for a bigger prize cash-in. Just a thought and a way to dump it fast if you need the money quickly.
A HD dealer might pay more.
I saw another (different design) in CL that someone was asking $1500. Don't know if it sold, the price turned me away fast.

Yellow,
As far as custom HD's goes, yours is not that bad.
All 4 Reels
Reel surround
the right looking belly graphic's (if you had to choose one)

most just have the belly art changed.

Ask Devo if he's around :smilebox: I bet those graphics weren't cheep

I'd see some folks wanting that one. Just be honest. Tell em it's roots and highlight all the work done on it.
I'd go $150 or B/O to start

If we heard the music it plays I bet we could nail down the exact model.
good luck

i think it was a fireworks machine.

it is decent looking custom. but it still is a custom.
make sure to tell the buyer what it is.
i agree with Forest on price.

most older machines are usually sold for around $100.

I see that Yama agrees with me regarding what the machine was before being converted.
I saw that '2000' that Lompoker pointed out & wondered, but Fireworks is a 1999.
I still disagree with Forest re the value being around $150---only if you see a Harley rider drive up.
The belly glass is good----it's hard to go wrong with the Harley emblem. Did not care for the way the cycles were done on the 4th reel. Devo would have done a much more professional look. The changes to the main reels are workable for me.
It is still worth less than $100 to me but you can tell that I'm not a custom fan. Somebody might love it (and it does have the 4th reel) and Harleys are popular. Price it higher---easier to come down than go up.
You do have both keys?
Good fortune.
To play or not to play, that is the question.

Thank you for all the good info and advice.
Yes both keys are present.
I would love to turn this thing into a "Ravens" slot machine
I only paid $75.00 for the storage unit I bought that had this in it and it had lots of other cool stuff...
Who knows what I may do now...
