that's a good point! the 'M' shape in the arch is the biggest giveaway - next to the wonky Rock Shox stickers :P

Yeah though serial should prove which model. Send an email to windwave with it (should but at the base of the steerer?).

The lowers are 100% Marzocchi but the uppers don't look like theirs though...without sounding weird, their gold stanchions are very gold if you know what I mean. They're almost Rock Shox coloured.

After 2003 all the stanchions were black or nitrate on the high end jobbies.
