A few years ago I saw an ad for a retailer selling the full line of Marzocchi suspension products, from somewhere back east I think. I was amazed they listed rear shocks similar to these for something like $140 a pair new, available in any length. I thought about buying some for a project I was starting, but wanted to wait until I finished doing the frame mods (in order to determine the exact length of shocks needed). I may even still have that ad (kept it to reference when it came time to buy). The project got delayed due to a family loss, so it was almost a year later before I tried to buy them. But the company was gone, victims of the recession I guess.
