SO WHO'S PERFECT ...

Some time ago I indicated that I had owned a Marathon Bike Race....oops !!! my mistake.
Recent research has disclosed that I owned a similar machine manufactured by the Munves Co. New York.
Many of my earlier years of collecting were spent in the Munves warehouse.
In the early 1960's I had the place to myself as there was little interest in antique Penny Arcade machines.
I wandered the isles free to pick and choose without anyone breathing down my neck.
Comparing the two attached pictures, it sure looks like Munves stole the idea from Ahrens. ROGER

It came from an operator and unfortunately some of the original coin gear was removed so that it could be operated on US coin. I'm interested in getting this machine operating correctly back on English penny. Is there anyone out there who may have some coin mechanism parts for sale? This is an original metal cabinet machine and is also missing its top marquee. I would be interested in any pictures showing what the marquee should look like or anyone who may have any parts for this game. Any help with this project would be appreciated. Future Thanks
The Marquee is porcelain enamel

Get one made Jingle, if you can get a good image from Sentimental, it would not be as expensive as you would imagine, simple text and three colours rather than pictorial, I have had some done before, smaller though……would be worth if with a nice period frame !THUMBS!
