My originals are pitted and I refuse to use them. I'll keep them for mementos and hang 'em on the wall.
David Silver had some repro's listed until a week or so ago, not so now. I contacted them and they said that their supplier had discontinued the part and their is no more stock. I need help guys. I've looked for hours and hours and can't locate NOS or repro's. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm down to my last few parts to buy and not being able to find these cushions is making me nervous and concerned. Thanks for looking :-(

I fitted these TEC shocks, intended for a CB350. Spring rate is too heavy for the 175, they are slightly too long, and the top and bottom bushings need to be changed. I fitted the 175 springs, also some black PVC waste pipe to copy the original covers under the springs.

But once that has been done they look very much like the originals, and work well.

Thanks! I now have some options at least. Thankfully, I have two kidneys. Because, I just may have to sell one so the wifey won't complain :/
