Rear shock service company recommendation

Postby bic_bicknell » Mon Mar 12, 2018 1:47 pm

Hey all you guys out there who do a bit of track-days and racing. I have a question...

I've found a set of period rear shocks for my Kawasaki H2c - they're probably early eighties and have come from one of the old Yamaha 350lc ProAm race series bikes that was still racing last year, They're pretty rare Marzochi remote reservoir units (a bit like those classic red ones that were fitted to Ducatis and the like back in the day) but these are chrome and fabricated from steel tubing, not cast like those other ones. I'd put a picture up but the forum is looked for that now.

Anyway, the guy I bought them off says they are worth g fine but i'd like to get them serviced by someone who knows what they are doing.

Can anyone recommend a suspension place in the UK who would be willing to take on a period set of shocks and do a refresh and service job on them? Needs to be a fan of the old school and not just into hyper new kit.

Thanks in advance.
