    1978 R100/7 - rear shocks

    I definitely need rear shocks, not necessarily the springs, but for sure the shocks.

    My question is this. I am not opposed to purchasing a pair of used shocks, so if anyone has some...

    However, I am wondering what you folks recommend. If I would get new ones what and where would be the best to buy and who from?

    I am not after factory original, but I want good quality as this bike will be mine probably for the rest of my life, and my son will probably inherit. So...I would like them to last a long time!

    What all do you recommend? New" Used? What brand? How much?

    Thanks

    Jimmy, you may want to use the search function and search for "shocks" right here in the Airhead forum. There are multiple options out there which include IKON's (formerly know as KONI's), Works, Hagon, Progressive, etc.

    I personally purchased a pair of IKON's from Bob's BMW a few years ago and have been very satisified.
