Greetings Listers,

I disassembled an original shock off my 1968 CL175 and they are toast. There is little to no dampening action.
Has anyone located a suitable replacement? My initial searches have proved disappointing. These are 12 inch 305mm in length, with the eyelet top and clevis bottom. Given the number of old small Hondas out there, one would think some mfg is offering a replacement.
There is a vintage Honda graveyard in my neck of the woods, but old replacements would probably be no better than what I am trying to replace.

Help!

Further to our PMs.

David Silver DO still stock their cheap but adequate shocks, but for some reason they don't appear in the CL parts list, only on the CB list.

These are the ones that I've got fitted to my CL175. I'm sure that the small top shroud could be removed if you want them to look more like the original CL shocks.

Hi Richard,

I missed those shocks when I ordered parts from DS. Thanks for the info.....
Are you running TEC shocks on your other small Honda? Can you offer a comparison?

Many thanks,

Michael
