The shock is fixed. Bought a used one off an inmate in good shape.
Initially, I thought I could just pull the two bolts holding the shock on and slide it out the left hand side of the frame. No such luck. I ended up stripping just about everything off the top and back of the bike to get access.
That was taken after I got the new shock in.
I haven't had a chance to test the new shock. Since I had the tank off, I decided to tackle the water pump rebuild. And, since I was buying parts, I decided to buy a new sprocket shaft seal as well. I'll get some pics as I go.
