Just picked these up for a nice budjet build im doing for a mate :D

They are ANTI GRAVITY and resemble the early TANGE SHOCKBLADES..

They have some lovely machine work on them..

If they were 1 1/8 id use on my own build :wink:

Does anyone have any info on these?

They are US made and still work great..

Yous must be the model before mine? The machining on yours must have prooved too expensive! The were reworked to give slightly more travel than standard, up to a whopping 48mm or so!!
They are pretty light but were designed with drier U. S. conditions in mind. An hour or two of Dartmoor mud meant a relube had to be done. I got so good at it I could have apart, cleaned, relubed and together again in around 5 minutes!

They are very similar indeed..

I think TANGE must have done some contract work for the ANTI GRAV company :wink:

I did have a NOS set of the TANGE SHOCKBLADES still in their box..

But i sold them as they hardly budged when i leant on them :lol:

Thanks for the exploded image fella, that may come in handy :wink:
