Looks like a cheap copy of Frank Sandersons/PM Tuning setup.

fitted some on my Li series 3 Avanti....seem ok, makes the front end a bit heavier but noticeably smoother over bumps and "axle breakers"....can't fault the price.......chrome lasted about a month though :roll:

i fitted these for someone a few yrs ago the bolts they use need to be machined down to a circle and then dished to suit the profile radius of the fork links then a prep put on them and then held in a jig to be welded up the top fixings are sh1t as they need to be solid on the mounting bracket and not a nut and bolt which these are everything was very tight to fit under the mudguard and to get looking right, 3 hrs work by myself and ive been a welder since i was 16
the shocks he uses cost him £35 max ;)
i prefere to use S1/2 fork links as there "lower" and give about 6mm more clearance
tbh its not rocket science to make your own kit

I still sell a chrome set up with similar springs
http://www.lambrettainnovation.co.uk/sh ... n-kit.html
but we put a lot more work into the actual shocks and top mounts Like shocky describes, he used to buy these of me to fit so he knows our set up is OK . Best way to buy them is direct to unit 01772 721714 we sell the full set up for around £85.00 no paypal or ebay fees to consider . beware imitations
