    1965-66 shocks are the same and the only ones that would have the original appearance.

    The shocks have been unavailable since the middle 70s, finding a new set is going to be rough. Consider Progressive Suspension shocks.

    Replacement in appearance or function? I rebuilt a pair not too long ago. Found the NOS covers on eBay and replaced the actual monroe or maybe Gabriel shocks inside the springs.

    I ended up buying some "replica" units.
    I would prefer "original" items.
    Could not find a supplier for the shock, Dou you have any more information on the items you purchased?
    Thanks,
    Warren.

    I will look in my files to help you out. I was still able to get the shock, but had to weld the washer on the shock that was added by Harley. I was not sure of the finish of the exposed area of the bottom part of the shock so I used zinc, mine were all rust except for an exposed area. I know I have one nos cover, because I had to buy three. I also has a set of NOS caps with clamps for the top.
