Looks like a 954 from doing a search but maybe the shock was upgraded? If so, what shock is this? I sort of rescued this from under a patio on an island but the main pivot hardware has snapped and I guess it'll be impossible to find replacements. I'm still intrigued though, and if nothing else will keep the the shock assembly just because.... and the XT cranks, MountainSpeed coil equipped Judys etc.

Cheers!

No clues then? I've only seen Proflexes with this design having elastomer stacks.

A 954 it is. I can't remember the spring upgrade, I think the first springs came available when the 96/97 models were launched. They had a new framedesign.
I actually used to own a white 757, my dad later had a K2 5500C.

Thanks for the info. I don't suppose anyone knows if the earlier Proflexes shared the same main pivot hardware?! The main pivot is broken, but sometimes Proflexes come up for sale here, and I might be tempted to by one to by one if it's in really bad condition and use it as a donor.

I think there is ProFlex forum on 'tinternet somewhere you may get more help there.
Jussa on here may be able to help.

It looks like a worthy project.
Good luck
