Teac/Tascam Studio 8 Refurbishing

I have two Studio 8 machines that have been in storage for a couple of years. During storage, the drive bands seem to have broken or stretched, because, although they seem to work electronically, the transports don't work, so the reels won't turn. Does anyone have any recommendations as the a place where I can get them refurbished? I'm in Southern California. They're too heavy to mail across country.
