Default Early Sportster Rear Shocks

I have a set of rear shocks that I've been moving around my garage for too many years now. They are available for $125 plus shipping cost (PayPal is preferred).

The cover on one of these shocks is dented in a few places but the other one is in good shape. These shocks have the chrome full spring covers (see page 70 in the 1961 to 1971 Sportster Parts Catalog).

PM me and I'll send pics.

Thanks.

Just a heads-up: I decided to just go ahead and list the shocks on E-bay. Waiting for people to get back to me is a hassle.

Anybody interested in a trade?

I have:
19" hamburger front w/ the high shoulder rim
Quite a few gas tanks
Black solo seat w/ 4" springs
Nice set of stock length 33.4mm tubes, I'll have to pull em
Old swingarm sissy bars, one's an old Drag Specialties Trident w/ a Knight Light
Plus a lot more....

Message me on here for more info/pics

Kinda looking for anything. But I'll trade my 16" spoke rear w/ a good tire on it+a brand new one for a full 18" spoked rear with a good tire. I'll consider cash offers too, PayPal and sending as a buisness transaction is fine.

They are the 71-72 style. I think they still fit early lowers, just not the other way around.
