Well, I didnt seen to much of them here (except Kaermit's collection) - maybe I'm just blind? ;)

So, I'm showing mines, hope You'll show Yours!

Nice collection! These are the Marzs I remember wanting when I was a lad :)
What sort of reputation did they have for performance?

Well, as I know Zocchis comparing to RS Mags always works better in small and middle bumps Unfortunately seals was not so durable as in Mags, so Zocchis needs much more service...

Nice collection,

I have a purple xc500 myself and just like me you just add a brake stop on the brake booster which is missing the original brake cable stop (circumcision for v brakes).

Anyway I like the slim desing of xc500, it's not like modern suspension forks which kill the clean looks of classic bike design.

Cheers.

I had a pair of painted red DH ones,

if you took the time to strip the paint off they were lovely anodised green underneath.

Very impressive photos! The forks looking very well!

Unfortunately I have dissassembled most of my forks ... I'm wondering when I will have the time to rebuild them ... and make some photos ;-)

That's somethong I don't understand. Some of the DH3 are anodised red, some other are painted (and looking very ugly!).
Over the years I had some of both.

Does somebody knows, wether Marzocchi painted the forks?

When the continuous raining is over I will take the full framekit outside for some proper pics.
