I bought my Africa Twin about a month ago. It has been standing for a few years. The rear shock is completely rusted and all seals are shot.
My question is as follows: is it worth it having it restored and rebuilt with a stronger spring etc, or would I be able to pick up a fairly decent shock either new or used on ebay for more or less the same price as the restoration.... If so, what should i be looking for?
Trying not to break the bank in my rebuild.
