New shocks

Progressive 412

Progressive spec a 412-4211C for a CX500 with dual rear shocks. More info to come.

Retro Slim 12.5" shocks

Available from Dime City - LINK. At the time of writing they are just under $100US.

Notes: Dime City were unable to provide information as to the specs of these shocks, e.g. travel. With a 60kg rider they didn't ever bottom out at the rear. Very firm but not spine-jarring, reasonable build quality.

Used shocks
