Cheers bro, that would make sense as I've just picked up a real 'tatty' '97 Zaskar project! I'm actually quite surprised how nice they are? Back in the day, we frowned upon anything RST! :lol:

I think the Mozo was the exception to the rule - I quite liked some I picked up with a frame.

Length of the stanchions look a little over-kill, as they only appear to have around 2.5" of travel?

It was a good fork from what I heard but the brand perception was poor because of all the low end bikes with their OEM forks. I would assume Suntour is dealing with the same problem now with their attempts to sell higher end forks.

Bought a new pair of Mozo pro's back around '97, cant remember exactly, for my Proflex 856 after i bent the Girvins on a bmx track. Got them as they had 3.5" of travel, same as the frame, rode them for years, great fork for the money at the time.

Well, given I paid 50 quid for them stuck on the front of a poor '97 Zaskar, LX mechs, V's, M 600's, Richey stem and half respectable rear wheel, I ain't complaining! :lol:
