1954 Falcon 67 rear shocks

Post  marcusrm on Tue May 24, 2016 10:11 am

Does anyone have any idea where I can get shocks for this bike? There are plenty available for later models, but these are of a heavier build with a bigger diameter of 60mm, so they don't fit.
Thanks
Marcus

I had my Model 67 original shocks rebuilt by Norman Blakemore (NJB Shocks). He reused the alloy upper mounts, covers & springs on a new gas unit. If I can find the second pair of old shocks you might do the same. I couldn't find replacements. They are so thin.

If you're not a stickler for authenticity, you might find suitable shocks at Emgo (Taiwan). They had shocks that fit my sidecar when I couldn't source them elsewhere. They probably have UK distributors/retailers.

I've got the bottom-filler oil type and they both leak. Are they self-serviceable, or will I have to get them rebuilt? Orherwise, they're in pretty ggod nick...
