Does anybody know of or have a good replacement rear shock for a 1995 KONA SEX TOO ?
I created an account just to reply. I hope you are still in need of this info... but not sure if this will help you completely. Anywho... here goes...
I had this bike back around '97 or so. Rear shock went bad. This was before I had internet so I went to the local bike shop. They said they could not get a replacement... and didn''t know how to fix. They said I'd probably have to get one custom made and they gave me a number to Reese Racing (I think that's the name) who I thought was a motorcycle parts mfgr. I can't remember exactly... but I know the name was Reese or Reece.
Anywho... I shipped the old busted one to them and they made a new one similar but different and returned both the old and new about a month later. Charged me about $225 I think. It did not "pump" like the original but worked like a charm... guess it was some sort of coiling piston shock thingy. I never really cared how it was made as long as it worked... and it worked perfectly.
Like I said... it looked almost the same.
You could call them. I doubt they would remember me, and probably have not made another one since, so it would probably have to be treated like an original custom made even though they have already made one.
I don't know if it would help in your search withing their company records but my name is Frederic (Ted) Carlson, I lived in Amherst Mass at the time. I think I had the shock shipped to the bike store there in the same town... right on main street... forgot the name though.
This got me fired up. I may look into a retro sex too frame and build one from scratch.
