Strange shocks...

Post by minichamps11 »

Just got these & am a bit confused by them. Not sure who made them until I took them apart. They are definitely Schumacher bodies, shafts & seals, but did Schumacher ever make shock tops without the hexagon? These are perfectly round so I'm guessing they are either very old or aftermarket tops. Anyone know more?

I'd say that's a late Procat due to the ungraded black plates & Shotgun rear hubs. I'd guess the shock tops must be from an early CAT like Sven said, as I can't believe anybody would make aftermarket alloy shock tops that look like Schumacher's originals but are harder to tighten up!

I'll email Jimbo to see if he has any ideas.
