Found - Rear Shock

I'm still chasing after a new rear shock ! just had confirmation from Maxton that mine is jim rucked, so I'm well and truly stuck now.
Any help at all in sourcing a new shock would be greatly appreciated - hopefully I can get one sorted before the weather totally disappears.
btw Harris said they could get Ohlins to build one up for me but it would be neck end of 500
It would be good to add to the 260 miles totted up since her rebuild

I've, managed to get hold of a used one from fleabay thanks - not sure what it's going to be like, but it's an Ohlins & I'm hoping that I've not thrown money away.
cheers

Received the Ohlins shock yesterday - opened the box and it's mint, no worries, fitted her up last night and took the bike for a good run out today.
yeeeeehah

The only issue is that there isn't a screw fixing for the remote reservoir - the old marzocchi item had a couple of mounting points onto the subframe. Any suggestions or am I resorting to zip ties ??

Scuse me ignorance but wot do you pump the stock shock up with?

I was filling it with air but I'm sure maxton told me to use nitrogen, but I use that in the garden.

Help would be appreciated

Phil

I've been told to use air - but Nitrogen is a great idea it'll be much more stable with varying temperature extremes, hadn't thought of that one till now...
