Replacement Bellows for Ansco SpeedeX

I had an Ansco SpeedeX (Isolette) that was in need of a new bellows. Apparently this camera was famous for have used cheap materials for the bellow. I had several light leaks and had to get a new bellows. I bought my new bellows from Sandeha Lynch in the UK. The new bellows arrived in good condition and was reasonably priced. There are several colors to choose from. I chose the burgundy. The bellows comes with instructions for redoing the bellows. I didn't find the task too difficult. The hardest part is getting the film rollers out.

It went back together easily. Now I can use my Ansco SpeedX again. Hurray!

Below is a picture of the camera with the new bellows.
