Those stanctions are what ya call proper anodizing Cool ... interesting mounting of the rear ZEE Confused ... is that to get all four pistons biting on the rotor ?

i have had a bit of trouble but with other adaptors it wont clamp down and just hits the rotor

the gold coating has worn away on one stanction, as they leaked but marzocchi wont cover that under warranty, they just fixed the leak

The bike is really nice. Cool

Tbh I wouldn't fancy running the rear brake on two adapters, especially a Zee. There is a lot of force being applied there.

tbh there is a lot of vibration when i pull on hard, sounds like a flock of swans Laughing

There's a blast from the past! I had that same shooter frame in pearl white, lovely. I had it build up on a pair of Halo rims, loved that bike.
