Finally got around to trying to contact Doug Henry about his seat shock absorber and swivel assembly, I have emailed the guys on this website to see if they can put us in touch. In the video half way down the page he mentions using a mountain bike shock in the set up on the mx bike, hopefully we can get in touch and figure it out.

Is it one of the rear air shocks Andy?

James, are you interested in a good look around the Jimna area in the New Year?

You can drive to Jimna itself and cut down on your bitumen time, and we can show you around a bit through a few different areas! You shouldn't have any problems getting a permit from Woodford or Kilcoy.

Seat suspension is all guesswork at the moment but I am guessing they use a mountain bike rear shock as it should be fairly close to a good spring and damping rate for a seat. Dougs seat also allows for an amount of tilt fore and aft and sideways to allow a para to lean without chafing all the time thats the mount we need to figure out. Hoping I may get some joy from my emails.
Andy
