So if the rear shock is out it can not be repaired or replaced?Well worth it for that price... so long as the shock works. You'll probably never find a replacement shock, nor even the parts to service that one.
I owned a Turner but not a Stinger (mine was a Sultan). It seems all Dave Turner's bikes were highly regarded in their day.
I expect so. I don't own one so I haven't done any research but that thing is vintage and no one has made such a configuration for decades.So if the rear shock is out it can not be repaired or replaced?
I would buy that just for the vintage bike aspect, wow, nice shape. Buy it and go easy on it, as you progress get a modern bike, but for old people bike lovers like myself, that is a find. If you break the suspension, your probably out of luck, but cool vintage find.
this is a special strut for this model bikeI remember them back in the day but never saw one in the flesh. Wouldn't the air can service parts and routine be the same for that shock and other older Fox rear air shocks? I can't see the bottom of the can to tell. Internally as far as service parts, it may be the same as the more generic Float. One scratch on that anodized body, however, and it's toast for that proprietary end mount. For a collector bike to just tool around on, it could be a fun deal. Throw it down once in the rocks, and it could be done on that shock.
