Yes, but they weren't a single shock. If there was actually any kind of patent that would be a difference. Same as having one shock in standard positioning versus having two. If memory serves me right Honda's Gold Wing had a single shock on a twin side swingarm, with the shock mounted on one side. But I could be wrong and will quickly know so if I am
Ever get lost? You know, that good kind of lost - come to a dirt road intersection and you have no idea where you are or which way to turn? I like when that happens!
