Vintage 1950s Equipment Restored for Retro Home Bowling Alley

Retro home bowling alley installed in a family recreation building in central Minnesota. Most of the bowling components were salvaged from an old commercial bowling center, and were restored to like-new, or in some technical aspects, better-than-new, condition. The over-lane ball return riser, rack, and capping were originally manufactured in the 1950s. The automatic pinsetter machines are Brunswick A-2 models, which were totally dismantled, cleaned, painted, and rebuilt piece-by-piece with the addition of many new parts. The masking units are Brunswick Gold Crown single-lane models, which were refinished with Granny Smith Apple Green vinyl, and outfitted with a modern LED "pindicator" system. The bowling alley features built-in shoe and ball storage, and a restored manual scorer's table with custom scoresheets.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

While lanes in the '50s were made of wood, these are made of a new synthetic product that is practically maintenance free. "These don't need to be resurfaced and are more consistent than wood," Claxton says. "It's important that bowling alleys in private homes require as little maintenance as possible; it's not like they have a full-time staff like commercial lanes do."The cost for luxury in-home bowling lanes can run from $70,000 for one lane to $350,000 for a four-lane extravaganza.
