Default Free kegerator is missing parts, need help with the simple fix. PIC.

Hey gang, I received a free kegerator but it has no shank/elbow/faucet. I own a keezer but the world of tower draft beer is a mystery to me. I want to get this thing operational (to sell) on the cheapest possible budget. What are my options here? What do I need to buy and where is the cheapest place to get it?

Note: I do have the top cap to the tower. I took it off to show that there is nothing inside the tower (aside from insulation).

Thanks everyone!

Sell it as is. You will just be putting money into it for new parts that you won't recoup. Unless you can find some used parts in the classifieds I don't think it's a profitable venture. Look on eBay you can get a stripped down tower like you have very cheap.

Well, you need one of these


and one of these


and ten feet of this


and one of these


and a couple of these


and finally, one of these.


Let the buyer choose (and buy) the quick disconnect for the beer line.

Kegconnection has decent prices, and if you stick with chromed brass parts and a rear seal faucet you should get 'er done for < $60...

Cheers!
