Ludwig Speed King repair

I have inherited an old Chicago style Ludwig Speed King that works well but I would like to know if it can be refurbished? I always liked how the springs compressed and there were two springs and not just one. Any help will be appreciated.

Well first you have to tear it all apart. Take every last thing apart you can. Clean it and then see what you have to replace.

Do you know anyone that can make mine look like this? I watched some videos and I doubt that I can do the repairs myself.
Vincent Leef / Vitalizer Drums (formerly Polyphonic Drums) :


The above Blue Speed King was most likely done by him or Jesse Carraway / Drum Mechanix... the gentleman who previously did similar restorations and offered powder coating as an option.

Yeah ... Polyphonic/Vitalizer is the only one out there now, to my knowledge, doing the powder coating. Two other guys, on eBay right now, doing refurb. work.
