The Ikons chrome/black combo are $349 from New Bonneville. That's probably as expensive as I'm willing to go.

My Thruxton fund has taken a recent hit with the powder coated wheels, Maund FEK, and LSL brake reservoir. Have to build it back up for shocks.
I have the Hagon 2810 adjustable shocks and the blue and chrome label is a sticker. I believe it can be taken off. I left mine on at the moment and will take it off once i get a few hundred miles on the shock to make sure everything is good.

Chris, I had no problem ordering from TEC, I do not use PayPal either......take a look at their website again. (quit PayPal when they decided that they wanted into my bank account).

Ikon:
-Asia made
-4 clicks of rebound damping
-$350

Hagon 2810:
-British made
-10 clicks of rebound damping
-$300 (for the time being)

Ed,

I wouldn't give up on PayPal so quickly. You need to fund the account somehow, so a link to your banking account, whether it be your credit card or checking account is completely understandable. I guess you could mail checks to them and visa/versa, but that sort of defeats the whole convenience thing about them. Everything is password protected with HTTPS secured servers.
If you're concerned that PayPal will make unauthorized withdrawals, your fears are unsubstantiated. I’m not saying that this –may- have not happened in the past, but I do not recall reading about any incidents since I’ve been using them (since 2001). They’re the biggest and best of the on-line payment services and under the microscope of every industry watchdog.

I'm using TEC shocks. They are a bit better than standard. Help the high speed handling of carbed Thruxtons as they are 5mm shorter so lengthen the wheelbase but I'll save up and fit Hagons next. Though I really don't need 10 clicks of adjustment. TBH I've had bikes with multi adjustable suspension and fiddling with it only worsened things. So unless you really know what your doing I don't think multi adjusstable suspension is worth the hassle. Just a good shock with the right spring rate and quality damping unit should be fine on a bike like the Triumph Twins.
