  • Vintage Everlast speedbag platform

    I Have an old Everlast speed bag platform. It looks original but is there suppose to be a way to adjust height. I also have a old Everlast speed bag #4211. Looking for new bladder. Any info would be appreciated. Please call 810364-7529.

    As far as a bladder, probably the Title Boxing 'Large" one will work. This platform is adjustable, it's just easier to do with two people. There are two lever clamps on the back of the platform frame that hold it in place. By pushing both of them up it releases it and you can lift it up or lower it into position, then pull the levers down to lock it into place. This was one of their semi pro platforms, the two upper tier platforms have hand cranks to adjust them in addition to clamps to hold it in place.

      Thank you for the information. It comes down easy but hard to raise even with two people. Would it hurt the value if I made a hand crank. I only gave 50 dollars for it. Came with three new bags and swivels. Any idea what year it is.

        . Here is catalog page with one of the later versions of it, (go down a couple of posts) with the hand crank and knob type set screws https://speedbagforum.com/forums/for...tory/3802-1994 Note that the description indicates that only the top end style has the hand crank, the lower two are the "manual" adjust like what you have.

          As far as what year, I would hazard an educated guess that it's probably post WWII, more than likely 1950's-60's. They didn't change a lot. Most of the differences in them appear to have happened after they moved from Brooklyn to Missouri.

            kotis Here is my Vintage Everlast with the worm drive and crank, it's taken apart but you can probably copy the center piece and weld the one attachment you see in the middle of the worm drive that allows it to move the platform up and down to your setup.

                It's a One inch Worm drive, i think 3/4 of an inch might not be strong enough to move your platform up and down. Let us know if you add it to your Everlast platform

                      Thanks to everyone for your help. I came up with this by using a 1/2" rod, 2 rear spring hangers with three 1/2 inch set screw collars. I thought 1/2 rod would be to light works perfect. I raise and lower it with my cordless drill. I had everything in garage. Don't laugh.

                        Dude, that is freaking awesome, your the man. I do the same shit, whatever is in my garage i try to make it work, it would be easy to add a self made hand crank to that, Right on. (EDIT) The one other thing you need to add is a Vintage Everlast Ball-hook swivel
