If you're experienced with a soldering iron and have access to a decent iron suitable for SMD, its not particularly hard to recap an Amiga. Although if the caps have leaked a lot, it might not just need a recap, then it also needs fixing of any broken tracks and vias that the acid may have caused.

I think Amigakit has a recapping service if you don't want to do it yourself. Although due to 2 x postage it may not be very cost-effective..
