I had both of the. Bought the both in the early to mid 90's for around $10 each.. definitely under $20 each. I played the a few times, then never again.

I bought my Tele Games video pinball console NEW back in the 80s and still have it. Looks and works like the day I bought it. A few months ago, I bought the Atari white video pinball console off Ebay for $5 in mint condition & works perfect, then a few days later, got the same deal again, and bought that one too.

So now I have three, all sitting at the foot of my bed.

Almost as creepy as the Geico dollar bill guy. I can see it now -

"Oh, he's gone. Traded him in for three video pinball consoles."

That is a commercial I want to see reach fruition! :cool:

I have the Sears version with 4 paddle controllers for the built in Pong VI. If anyone wants to see it I'll post pics. I don't tend to see too many of these around online. It's a nice little console.

I won an auction for a NIB one a few months ago and then the seller never shipped it. BASTARD! :x

Hello, brand new member. Just bought a Stunt Cycle upright arcade game this week on ebay. Picked it up the next day! Been looking for almost 10 years for a working one!

Later, Scott (Nebraska)

Welcome aboard!

Please post some pics of your arcade machine... I love the 70s look of the arcade cabinet. :)

Just curious how many people have these systems and play them.

I have both the Stunt Cycle and Video Pinball (White version). I play the Video Pinball one a few times a month.


I own the boxed Video Pinball console (woodgrain). It appears to be superior to the 2600 version. I haven't been lucky enough to win the bid on the Stunt Cycle console yet, though I have seen them go for $20-$50 on Ebay in the past year.

Wow, lots of nebraskans here. I'm in Omaha myself. I've got the Pinball breakaway, and a Super-pong. For non-atari pong machines I've got the Odyssey 300 and an APF-TV fun. Unfortunately I have no AC adaptor for the APF-TV fun. Anyone know what that thing takes?

I have the Atari Video Pinball (white-cream version) but i've sold the Atari Stunt Cycle some time ago because it is the
same games found in the GI AY-3-8765 (also AY-3-8760) that is one of the two chips found in the Sears Motocross system.

But i have a request to any who has an Atari Stunt Cycle. I found out that the Atari Stunt Cycle has a dedicated game chip
called "C010730-07". Can anyone open up their Atari Stunt Cycle and tell me how many pins it has (28-pins ??) and the logo
or company written on it (AMI ??) or better yet, take simply a picture of the game chip!

Because i greatly suspect that Atari relabeled a General Instrument (GI) AY-38760 and put the code "C010730-07" on their
game chip. Which, if is true, would be the first time that Atari didn't released a game chip by AMI in North America.

But the Atari Hockey Pong (model C-121)(1976) was released ONLY in Europe and uses a GI AY-3-8500 (PAL
version of the AY-3-8500-1), this one is ultimately rare to find in Europe. For pictures, check here:

Anyone can help me out with this request PPLLEEEAASSSEEEE??!!! (for historical and database information)

I have a brand new near mint box for video pinball...but nothing inside of it to play...

How much and is it worth it should I pay to get one for my nice looking box?

I've got 2 video pinball units, one got hacked with a PlayStation controller so I could play all those cool pinball games with flipper buttons! Now' I'm going to hack it again with a PS3 controller to play that real cool new Williams compilation!

Got a carton full of the video pinball units nib sealed. I'll dump them at the local tech college, I'm sure folks there can learn from them or provide them with a suitable home.

I had the sears version of the Video Pinball. That was my favorite stand-alone unit. Should've never sold it... :sad:

One of mine was broken .. so I hacked it to work with the 2600, Vectrex, Bally Astrocade pinball games .. I installed a tilt device also ..

On top I installed a driver controller spinner to play tempest games .. hot glued some pennies into the cap for some angular spin momentum ...
