Does anyone know how much nitrogen gas that should be put into the front shocks? I think they are Fox brand #4083711221The bike has been sitting for many years and gas has leaked out of shocks.

Try Thor Lawson. He has parts for Fox and Simons forks. (I've never dealt with him, I've only seen his ads in the AHRMA newsletter.)

Very cool.........do you have pictures you can post?

I used to have one of those back in the early eighties. I still regret selling that bike. Mine was a mongrel of a bike with a '79 frame/chassis and '78 engine. It was a great running bike and very reliable..........set up for woods riding with an ignition from an enduro model.

The hot setup was to mate a 250 5 speed transmission with a 360 or 414 top end (the open class bikes were 4 speeds).

Sorry but I can't help you with the suspension questions as mine had Marzochi forks and Tony D Gasser shocks.
