Red LAI (Leisure & Allied Industries) OutRun Stand Up (Updated)

A good while back I posted a photo of an OutRun machine that had red sides, at the time I thought someone had painted them but recently I have confirmed that this is a official variation to the Australian market produced by Leisure and Allied Industries, the same company that manufactured the Australian only sitdown cab featured a few weeks back.

I have only come across two machines so far online so there’s not too many photos to be found.
One is owned by a guy called Dexter who did over a 2000km road trip to pick up his dream machine.
Below are a few pics of Dexter’s machine. You can check out the link for his complete journey here >>>>>>>

There are some other differences in this machine too including –
Raised kick plate
Coin mechs
Marquee and side art have the LAI logo

Below are photos of another Red sided OutRun found on Gumtree

It would be great to see someone restore this variation to pristine condition. Let’s hope one turns up in the future.

I will add this machine to the arcade variations page soon.

  1. Hi from sunny Queensland Australia, Tomorrow I am going to look at the Lai outrun cab you have seen on Gumtree. If its ok I will purchase it with the intent of doing a full restoration. I am new to the arcade scene so I’m hoping I will get lots of help from this site and other Outrun fans. I will let you know how I go. cheers Ray

  2. Hi,It’s all pretty rough . Haven’t purchased yet. Any idea where I can get a working pcb for it? I imagine they are hard to get. any help would be appreciated. Ray
