I've been considering doing the same for a couple of bikes (well 3 actually) so may I ask, and feel free to say no or PM, how much, even if you let me know by %, how much extra was levied on top? Always put me off, especially as I want more than one.

That would look great on an Ampliferr. Let mine go and strangely as a result ended up with an STS (in a round about trade type way eventually), but had a less adjustable version that looked good on the back.

the shock it self was 390 USD with pump and adaptor with shipping

Icelandic customs decided to double it because we live on a bloody island..
so nearly 800 bucks for a shock :S

Don't be so sure, I've been stung before, especially when buying from the states. Almost makes it worth taking a trip there and bringing stuff back.
