Default Aiwa AD-6800 Belts & Service Help

Hi All,

I have a lovely Aiwa AD-6800 tape deck that's sat for some time. It powers on and works but is in obvious need of a belt change and a service.

These days I have no idea how to go about finding someone with the skills to do this. My local AV repair shops are all long gone

Does anyone know of anyone ideally in the Bristol area (or anywhere within the UK) that takes on this sort of work?

I can't overstate how beautiful this machine is. I would happily travel (& pay) to ensure it get's a second lease of life. A couple of pictures are attached.


Thanks!
Max.

Thanks to everyone who has offered to help. I made the decision to sell the deck in its current state over Christmas to someone who will do it justice. After having a long think I came to the conclusion that getting it serviced only to sit stored away for another 20 years wasn't best for the machine.
