Hi all

I wonder if you could be so kind to help me. I currently have a set of 1995 Manitou 4 suspension forks on an Orange E2 (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v344/ ... ure111.jpg) but unfortunately they have ceased to function properly.

They currently have 6 mcu elastomers in them but they are completely knackered, (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v344/ ... ure112.jpg)

Now I could replace the forks but I want to keep the bike as retro as possible, so I was hoping somebody could recommend a product that could replace the MCU's. Or maybe have some old MCU's lying around in the garage, any idea’s would be helpful as Manitou say they do not make replacement parts are will not recommend any other manufacturers replacements…

Thanks..
