- Whatever happened to that Millyard shock?
I seem to recall Jones in Dirt saying it was one, if not the best shock he’d ever tried. I remember it was fitted to a homemade DH bike with a few innovative features. I think this shock was being heralded as the next big thing.
Allen Millyard built it (kawasaki 2 stroke tuner if I recall).
Does anyone know what happened to this?Posted 5 years agosharkattackMember
I loved the single sided swingarm with internal chain. Looked amazing.
I think the rear shock was an air shock full of nitrogen. And yes, I remember them saying something about it being a miniature version of what you’d find on a tank but I know nothing about tanks so they could be full of it.
I saw it being raced a few times and remember it being silent. At least in the days before people became obsessed with silencing their bikes.
EDIT: There’s loads of pics on Pinkbike

Only if your idea of ‘homemade’ is a top-quality engineer with a decent workshop and a track record in producing innovative quality projects.
If it’s made at home, regardless of who made, then that is what I mean by homemade. Sorry I didn’t clarify, but to help you along:
