    I’m after some shock hardware. The ‘top hat’ sections, NOT the bolts or bushes.

    Either 6 or 8mm bolt. One at least 27mm wide. One at least 37mm.

    If they are old and tatty, no worries, I have a lathe to clean them up.

    24mm is generally the widest overall mount width that’s recommended for top hat style bushings, if by that you mean the (normally alloy) ones that push into the shock from each side. Otherwise even a very strong bolt can bend the engineers say. I have drawings that show this i could email you.

    If it helps, I have some (new) push through steel bushing “rods” with slip over spacers for each side between shock width and bike mount. They are over length but, you have the lathe, right so you could shorten them neatly..
    Whats the shock bore?

    Mudfish,

    Thanks for the reply, but I’ve managed to source some.

    Its an 8mm bolt, so I doubt bolt bending will be such an issue. I’m an aerospace stress engineer, so perhaps I’ll do some calces to see if the 24mm statement has any basis!
