Default Re: building a magna

Yup... seen those too... or the rear shock set up to look like an elastomer and it's just a plastic cover, not to mention most the rear shocks have no damping ability at all... last one I took apart had just a chunk of felt sandwiched between a set of washers and saturated with some nasty sticky grease, and another sticky grease saturated felt pad for the pistonless piston rod to bottom out on in case the rider rolls over a pebble in the road. They do know how to make them look cool tho...
