    Default Shoch absorber FLH 1965

    Hi

    is there anyone who has the experience of renovating shock absorbers to a 1965 FLH and know where to get the right spare parts. I now realize, after several months of searching on eBay and buy and sell groups on Face Book, that it is difficult, almost impossible to find such. What I am looking for is: 54502-65 SHOCK ABSORBER, only (fits 65 and 66) and 54551-58 SPRING (fits 58 to 66). Another alternative is to find a pair of complete NOS shock absorbers.

    I do see them on Ebay. You must identify them by sight as rarely are they listed as 1965 shocks, but rather lumped as pan or shovelhead shocks. If you have the correct shocks already have you dismantled them to see if they are still functioning?

    I don't know if i have the correct Shocks, maybe you can help me identify them. The function was very poor what i remember,I have bought a couple of post-war shock absorbers from Motorcycle Storehous until I have been able to renovate or buy new ones

    The parts you are looking for have been obsolete since the mid 70s. An alternative would be to use Progressive Suspension shocks.
