If you decide to turn your two iffys into one functional fork, I'd be interested in the spare spring assembly - assuming I can retrofit it to my 55cr for some coil plushness.


I have a pair of 55's that you are welcome to experiment with.


Both still work and are currently on bikes... just the stanchions wearing at the moment.

Correct.

Judy's were insanely expensive at the time, but I always wanted the DH's. :love:

At blowing the cartridge apart.


Place your bids Gentlemen. I have a 97 Era Judy DH dual cartridge here which is for sale. :sneaky:

I instead have 95 Manitou EFC's in excellent condition, with aftermarket coil springs and recently rebuilt. I bought mine out of Germany. Just can't decide which bike to put them on.

First world problems!


Hmm. I might have to sign in on my computer and have a bit of a search. I can feel the makings of a thread.


I have a bunch of NOS Judy springs and a damper cartridge sitting in my spares bin.


Colour me interested. PM incoming.

So why do the official press releases from Tenneco contradict the information from the distributors?

This is weird. Really weird.

Ditto. They make quite horny.

Not quite as much as the chickie further up the page, but I feel the urge to get rowdy nonetheless... :blush:

The new forks on show were (deep breath) 350 RC3 EVO V2 AER, 350 Plus NCR, 380 RC3 EVO V2, which you can remember with the simple mnemonic 35RCCC3VVA3+N38RCCCEVV.
