Hi peeps
Can anyone help me identify these early Marzocchi's. They look kinda lick the oil and air HDB's made for Kastel, but the HBD's had 6 click adjusters, these have 4. They also have a different brake arch from what i've seen on HBD's, and XCR's.

They are defo marzocchi as they seal covers have it on them, they are defo air oil, as they still hold good pressure, they compress and rebound nicely, but the adjusters don't seem to do anything though they turn and lock ok.
They have no stickers so am a bit stumped.

Any one have any ideas ??

Hi Zeb,

Chris is right! XC500s!

You can find a 1994 catalogue in the Verlicchi topic

You don't notice any difference when using the adjusters? I don't know. Sufficient air in?

Good thing with the Marzocchi is that forummember Novekilli from Italy recently said that with him Marzocchi still does servicing. You pay e50 and you get an almost new fork back. Makes them one of the more symphatic shock companies. Don't know whether importers do servicing too.
