Default Bozak B-450's

I am re-conditionaing a 3-way Bozak system. B199 12", B450 mid and 2 B200Y tweeters. The mids are shot - any ideas of good repalcements?

In what way are they shot? Surround? Cones? Voice-coil? Very few drivers are impossible to repair (assuming they haven't been used as a frisbee by gorillas) so it might be worth sending them off to get them rebuilt.

The coils are open. Very few places can rebuild Bozaks. Parts being the biggest issue. I have them apart and in the process of finding "suitable" replacement coils, but little succes so far.
I hate to even consider replacement as these mids(the 6" more so than the 4.5") are deemed as fine as any mid ever produced(by many). But practicality must prevail.
I've had a quote of >$100.00 so I have to consider investing (that much) in something more current. I am not a purist but I do beleive these are hard to beat - even to this day...
