I received a note from someone who was restoring a kiddie ride on his own and was looking for a new coin system for it… I believe the ride was a horse like Champ, but I could be wrong.
Anyway, when I need parts the first place I go to is SodaDecals.com, which is the primary supplier for decals and machine parts in the collector industry. And there I found it:
The Kiddie Ride Coin Box with ATV-3 Timer is a completely self-contained, locking coin collection system. Made of heavy duty 16 gauge cold rolled steel, this coin box includes it’s own coin mechanism, cashbox and solid state timer. Standard Features Include:
- Scratch resistant baked on powder coated paint in a Silver Vein textured color
- Fitted with a metal U.S. quarter coin mechanism that accepts up to 7 quarters
- Adjustable timer so you can set the length of ride
- Coin insert and coin return cup have polished chrome finish
- Round key barrel lock for extra security
This unit can be ordered directly from SodaDecals.com for $299.00 plus shipping and comes with their warranty.
