    Replacement rear shocks for 1982 R65?

    I searched the forum and found recommendations for just about every bike but the R65. I bought some Ikons for a R76/5 I built a few years ago that were affordable and pretty good. Ikon website doesn't list any for the R65. Does anyone know another brand/model that would be good for the R65?

    This list from their website shows shocks for the R65 and R65LS:

    Beyond them, I know that Ted Porter out west and Tom Cutter on the east coast both will build a shock for any bike and the way you ride. Probably not that much more expensive over some of the other name brands.

    Thanks, I couldn't find it because the R65 wasn't listed, just the R65LS and mono shock R65. It's a 7610-1427. Ted Porter stocks it.

    I relooked at the chart. The listing is "R65/ LS"...notice the space before LS. I think that was their way of showing the various twin shock models. And you're right, it says 7610-1427 on the chart. Glad you found a supplier!!
