XR 80 Rear Shocks _ Late 70's Early 80's

Recommended Posts

I recently picked up a 1980 xr 80 to play around in the pits / camp

 

The Rear twin shocks are completely SHOT !  Was considering buying some used ones from Ebay, but thinning I might run into the same problem.

I know "Works" might have some high end one, but considering I only paid $200, can't justify spending more than that for shocks.

I did find some on amazon, But Chinese ???  Anyone ever tried any of these makes ??

I know I know, friends don't let fiends buy Chinese. HA ....

 

Confused on direction to go in.

 

Thanks

Thanks for your response.  Those look damn sweet ! Not sure if I can justify them since they would cost as much as the entire bike, but you never know.

Very nice working shocks with 40lb springs. And you may choose other weights too. I'm about 170lb so far.
