$450 buy it now, needs a paint job and some repairs. But could make a nice two player six button fighting cabinet for someone. If it wasnt 7 hours each way Id be grabbing it this weekend.

The one for sale looks like it has a tiny little monitor in there. ^ That one right there is quite sexy though.

I owned an 'OK' for several years.
IMHO, this is not a good deal. These cabinets are pirated designs from China I believe. The cabs are not bad, but they are nothing special. Now if you'd buy a Sega cab for instance, that would hold it's value and perhaps even go up in price and you'd have something to be proud of.
That and the discolorization and damage is just ridiculous.
Don't do it. Get a cab from a respectable Japanese manufacturer like Namco, Capcom, sega, snk, jaleco, taito, etc, etc

Candy cabs on the east coast of the USA usually start at double this, before shipping. Thats why I said it was a decent deal. It is not the best cab design, and it needs work, but for someone who wants a project, it gives you something far more unique than a Dynamo or Golden Tee.

if this were like $200 less, i would likely jump all over it. i'm sure others would, too. chicago is only about 3.5 hrs from me so it'd be doable.
