It looks like the deal fell through. He never got back to me so I imagine he found a local buyer that wasn't much hassle.
I don't know what I will do for a rear shock yet. I will look around for a Fox of that vintage if I can find one. Otherwise, I may look at having something done with the stocker. Is it rebuildable? If so I will take it apart and give it fresh oil and try it. If not, there is a guy in Grand Rapids, MI that will rebuild anything for a price. I haven't checked yet to see how much difference there is between the FZ and FZR shocks either.
By the way, Do you have plans for your 87 basketcase? I still need a racebike. Maybe you should uild a racer too and come racing with at Brainerd this summer.
