Here we have a couple of forks:

'05 Magura Ronin 80mm air forks. Super adjustable, lockout, rebound, fast and slow compression adjustments. Short 170mm steerer and a bit tatty, but ideal for a winter hack.
Everything works as it should, though the rebound adjuster loses it at halfway adjustment. It can be pulled out and adjusted with an allen key though.
New fluids, seals perfect, unmarked stanchions. £60 posted.

Marzocchi Z2 Superfly. 1999. paintwork touched up but silver grubby. New fluids, seals perfect. Rebound adjustment and preload. nmarked stanchions. 190mm steerer, £35,000 posted.

I know we're not supposed to comment on price but it always astonished me that Marzocchi forks don't command better prices.

£35 for this fork is an absolute bargain. It was the best all-air fork of its time and can still give modern forks a run for their money.

The silver will come up gorgeous with a bit of autosol. Well it did on mine anyway.

I've had a few enquiries about it, but no one has picked up my PMs. I assume they're all out for the evening, so I'll add a couple of noughts to the price and see if they notice... :D

I paid much more for my S-Fly up in the 80 to £90 not long back. Though the steerer is 245mm

£35 is a bargain and wish I'd been fast enough to buy them for spares.

With the superlight steerer I could sell on and the smart CNC brace I could also sell on.

Can't even buy a pair of knackered MAG20's for that price :(
