Refurbished Candy Cabs in Europe?

Postby Nostromo » March 18th, 2017, 7:53 am

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows anyone in Europe who sells refurbished Candy Cabs (cleaned, resprayed to cover any yellowing etc.). I was considering http://www.arcade.am but they would not guarantee a burn-free monitor so I avoided :(
An Astro City cabinet or something similar would be nice :)

BTW, I keep reading good things about someone called RKLOK. I have found his website and sent him an email - info on his site is a bit sparse, any ideas if he refurbishes them, and what are the costs like? :P

Thanks!

Thanks for the link. Seems interesting (although from the pictures their cabs don't look refurbished). Do they speak English and ship outside of France? Thank you!

Both my cabs come from rklok, nice guy to deal with and very reasonable prices.
But he doesn't fully refurbishes them, cleans them up a bit and makes them complete and technical OK for sale.

But honestly, most fun I had with my NNC up to now was taking it apart to the smallest bolt and cleaning and rebuilding it ;)

Unfortunately I don't have the time/space/expertise to pull cabinets apart which I was looking for one which looks as nice as possible. How much did you pay for your cab if I may ask? Any photos? Thanks :D

Astro / new astro 950-990 euros refurbished .

Cabs are very clean , have a look on their facebook page , the work on it is awesome , if you don't call it refurbished ...

you can also send a pm or call them to tell exactly what you want , the Boss is truly a real fan of cabs in a AAA shape

I've had 2 cabs from Rklok and he's perfectly honest about condition before you buy and provided me with photos. If you're worried about taking them apart you might be best looking for a candy with a smaller than 29" monitor as those cabs tend to come in at 75cm+ wide. Getting them through doors without at least removing parts can be tough.

If you want a nice refurbished cab, look for a private seller on forums like this.
If a trader would spend 10-20 hours refurbishing a cab it would double the price.
Most common cabs like New Net City and New Astro City are around €800 with a trader like rklok.
Subscribe to his newsletter and facebook page to get updates on his stock.

I paid a bit less for my cab as I took it as-is without him spending any time on it apart from checking if it was in working order.

That's really nice (the way you made it look that is :P), I want one which is good to go as soon as I get it, obviously I'm ok for paying extra for that.

I also took two cabs from RKLOK. They were not reconditioned, but their aspect was more than ok. He doesn't sell junk. Also, you will receive photos of the machine you want, so you know what you're buying. Shipping fees are the best from him (expect 175 euros instead of 300 or more from other sellers)
