Shock absorbers

I decided to keep the original friction shock absorbers. They suit the period implementation of a Super Accessories Special from the 1950's. I can always fit hydraulic dampers at a later date.


The devices are totally restored and in the case of the rear, remanufactured parts were obtained. Painted in red to highlight them against the suspension.

Update 4th Aug 21

The front shock absorbers have been replaced with independent stainless fabrication and was instrumental in the performance improvement I see today. 

Here is an Index page for the build
