Default Ludwig Speed King.

Who restores vintage (pre-80+) Ludwig Speed Kings?,
I know etc there's a business called DrumMechanix but he's retired?,
Are the new ones as good as the ones from the 60s-70s&earlier?,
Because of cost of posting my Speed King to the USA,
I need to findca business or someone that can sell&ship me a complete Speed King,
Ta for reading&your assistance & help,
Ado.

There's a Speed King group on facebook. Few guys seem to buy sell and restore. Mild to wild. Saw a few members from your neck of the woods.

Also this guy is US based but makes some interesting new replacement and upgrade parts for them too.

Dude at polyphonic took over where the guy at drummechanix left off. Unfortunately he isn't / hasn't been doing customer refurbs, yet.
