There's someone selling a Blast City cab in travel distance to me, and I was wondering if I could an opinion on the price? I'm used to seeing ebay prices, so I'm not sure if I found a deal in 1300 USD or if this is more money and trouble than its worth.

Cabinet Pics
Listing:
Rare Sega Blast City (candy cab) arcade game. It's set up for Jamma/Chamma. Kortek CGA monitor (no burn in). The bezel doesn't fit perfectly on the machine because of the curvature on the monitor. It needs longer bolts to sit back further or the bezel could be sanded down to fit properly. An additional untested Kortek chassis will be included.

It depends what you want to do with the cab. Making it stock would probably cost more than buying one complete.

It would also be good to know if the wiring was hacked up to accommodate the Chamma buttons and Kortek chassis.

The gap behind the outside of the bezel is also pretty large. :think:

I'm looking for something mostly "ready to go" to slap a board in it and play, which in this case is the shell, panel, and screen? I'm okay if I have to rewire some stuff or do any work outside the CRT apparatus and am also okay if the machine isn't completely stock at the end, so long as it didn't look ajar... which makes the bezel kind of the sticking point.

To that extent, someone else is selling a Net City for 2200 USD with a Trisync Monitor. Pics for that as a comparison.

You don't see upright Net Citys very often. The price is awful though. It's like 2.5x what I would consider the cab to be worth in that condition. Also, it's an upright. Fine for a bar, but I wouldn't want one at home.

Most important thing is the monitor. I don't know kortek but i've seen lineups of blasts where i definitely would not buy half of them. Going by these pictures for me its impossible to judge. However for that price and seeing the general condition of cab and the bezel thing the monitor has to be absolutely perfect to warrant that kibd of price. Or maybe im just out of touch with current prices 🙄
