Wow - I've had Drew Smith's WER suspension rebuild one pair and I was thinking of sending him another this Winter. The first actually had a bent shaft, the 2nd it's just the once over, but makes me wonder what the parts situation will be.
There are a LOT of the WP shocks out there in our vintage scene. I've done great by them.
I talked to Randy Lee Brown and he knew personally that the shop had been cleaned out so inventory may have been sold off, but hard to tell where the remainder is at this time. We both hope someone picks up the business and keeps it going. Mike
Michael R. Winter I enjoy rebuilding and appreciating Pentons! 1974 250 HS Pentons-1978-1979 MX-6 175 & 250 KTM's 1976-78 125-400 RM's & 79 PE250 Suzuki & 2012 DR650 2007 CR125R Honda 1977 MC250 Maico
I was thinking the same thing: there were a lot of those shocks sold. As they say in I.T. a large "installed user base" which will require parts/maintenance. Not to mention the reputation built up over the years. Strange that the business would just go away, but sounds like an opportunity for somebody.
