Default Completely Chromed 10.5" Rear Lowering Shocks

Greetings Fellow Forum Members,

Happy to say I just had my new minty 2001 883 Custom delivered yesterday evening.

I'm looking for 10.5" completely chromed lowering shocks.
shocks.

I like the Burley branded ones but they left the bottom of their chromed shock in black. Don't like the black bottom.








I found an unbranded China made shocks and they have the look I want but I don't know anything about their quality. This is exactly what I'm looking for but not supporting anything Chinese as a matter of principle.







I know the Progressive Branded shocks are high quality but Don't Like the boxy bottom









Id love to find a quality set that is a completely chromed clone of the China set.

Any help is appreciated.

Best regards,

FiftySixer

Going that low you might as well just get some struts. These aren't chrome, but a trip to the chrome shop would fix that pretty easily.

Thanks RDHenley for your reply. I love the look of struts, especially chromed out ones. I’ve seen some really sweet ones in the past.

I had 10.5’s on my 2003 and although it rode very firm it was still reasonably comfortable, although if I don’t find the shocks I’m looking for I may opt for some chromed struts.

Thanks again and also thank you for taking the trouble to post the link to DK.

Best regards, FiftySixer
