Garlando World Champion 2004 for sale

The time has come to sell my Garlando World Champion 2004. It's in pretty good condition, apart from the fact that the lock mechanism is broken, so you can't lock the cabinet unless you install a new lock (not a problem for home users of course). http://i25.tinypic.com/2mx2wco.jpg Contact Dick Bell ...

this was Jamal losing at the bonzini worlds to a frenchman, Jamal refused to shake his hand so Cyril pulled a streetfighter (ryu) move on him (0.34/1.04), LOL
Hadoken!

A Chun-Li style spinning bird kick would have been more impressive though

Re: Problem with Garlando Coperto

One of the ramps under the goals which are supposed to return the ball to the main tray in the middle of the table has slipped so now when balls go into one of the goals, they fall straight into the table... I have a key to open the table but unfortunately the lock is slightly damaged and the key d...

Update: found a pinny foot Garlando in the "Sports Bar" in chinatown in Leeds (and some very generous quiz machines). Silver paint job, telescopic rods, glass top, 50p. Looked in good shape.  However, they said the bar was moving to combine with Riley's and form the "Cue Club", so not sure if the T...

Oh, Tom, I'm sorry.  Did you think we did that to people other than you as well?   :wink:
I just love the concept of being annoyed not at being bummed (presumably without consent) but at being bummed on an unfamiliar table.

Garlando balls

Hello everyone!  We've now lost all 3 of our foosball balls - hidden in nooks and crannies in the kitchen.  Does britfoos still sell replacement balls?  What's the latest model anyway?  Still the yellow ones?  If britfoos doesn't sell them, who does?
