Depends on your intentions. Some non original parts and perhaps some extra holes.

There are repro T-rods and claws out there that are pretty 'close' to the right look. Be careful of those.

The last pair of Slngerland 60's bass drums I had came with a mix of unoriginal parts and extra holes......I had to beg to get anything for them. I finally just flipped them to a friend for $60 each. What I should have done was just keep them for parts....eventually you will probably have a need for those parts if you intend to buy more Slingerlands. But $180 seems strong unless it has no issues and all the correct parts. Still, you could probably part it all out for about what you paid if it came down to that.

Building a frankinslingy as cheap as possible. I can’t seem to find cheap Slingerland drums like everyone has been talking about.

All three of the orphaned Slingerlands I've bought recently ALL had a date stamp inside. Have you looked?

That's a nice looking drum. Would have matched the 13x9 I bought.

$180 with all of the hardware, I think it's worth that much. Even if some of it's non-original. People will charge a lot extra JUST BECAUSE something is vintage. Regardless of it's condition.

Haven’t looked. Have yet to get the drum. Guess I’m taking a chance. He said he bought it at coalition drum shop in Wisconsin which is where I’m from. Said he paid a lot more than that for it.45$ shipping was the bad part.

For a bass drum, I just don't think that's bad. Hopefully the condition reflects that in a good way.
