i found an MIJ drum set (1960's ludwig) for cheep got some questions

How difficult is it to source claws and bolts for bass drums? it's missing them on one side and i have another old pearl bass brum sitting in my basement, they look extremely similar which makes me feel hopeful but i don't want to pull the trigger and be sitting on a set i can't use for years.
the set is a faded gold sparkle and comes with all kinds of beater vintage cymbals etc.

anyone with experience on this with insight would be gratefully appreciated

I put together an old MIJ 60's Coronet (Pearl) kit for dirt cheap,

the easiest way I found to get parts for these is keep your eyes peeled for someone selling a similar bass drum for cheap and strip the hoops/hardware from it.

i guess it makes sense to just nab it for $100 and then work my way towards a complete / og set
it comes with a shitpile of old cymbals also
