74" Indian flywheels

I have a set of 74" Indian flywheels that are worn on the inside, by the thrust washers from heavy abuse. Can they be saved,and is it worth having done? Would new wheels be cheaper?
Thanks Dennis

Truitt&Osborn makes reasonably priced sets, but repairing yours might not be that hard.

The counterbore for the thrustwashers can be easily cut deeper, and oversized washers are available from most suppliers.

The damage usually includes sheared pins. They are so dinky!
If you intend to show the machine no mercy, then you might consider an alternative;
