Rear Shocks Model 14 CSR 250

Postby Mark Tyler » Tue Nov 05, 2019 5:20 pm

Hi, I'm trying to find a pair of after market rear shocks for my CSR 250. (14&3/4 inches long). Does anyone know of a supplier or where I can get the original ones refurbished?

How bad are your existing ones? If the oil has stayed in, they are surprisingly easy to refurbish at home.

PS: you will struggle to find aftermarket shocks that look like the originals.

Thanks for the reply and link to the other posts... There appears to be oil in both shocks, just badly rusted... So as you advised I'll try and refurbish them. I did find replacement chrome and black covers from www.classicbikeshop.co.uk, just need to check the dimensions.
I did contemplate in trying BSA A50/ A65 13.4" shocks approx. 1&1/4" shorter if all else fails.
