Marzocchi Symbols
« on: April 21, 2017, 03:17 »
Hey just putting it out there looking for an old buggered set of Symbols for a experimental project.
Really only need the bodies if someone has a set taking up space in their shed.
Doesn't matter what they are off either.
Sitting on the fence 120 or 180 that is the question ?

You know I have a set on my Pantah, do a straight swap for a set of piggyback Ohlins?

Oh now that's a good idea not............. as I understand it yours are still in working order and not taking up room in your shed... though being that they are fitted to your Pantah guess it could be the case!

I've got a pair of piggy-back Marzocchis but I don't know if they're "Symbols" or not...pardon my ignorance but how can I tell?

The easiest way to tell is mine have a piggyback reservoir that has an approximately 30mm plastic cap on top of it with a Schrader valve under the cap as part of the shock, mine have a black plastic shroud over this piggyback bit with a 10mm plastic wheel that adjusts the compression damping on the back.

Symbols were only fitted to the SFC1000.
All other triples had Cerianis, Corte e Cosso or Marzocchi Stradas.

As per Grant they were only used on the SFC1000 for Laverda, though were used on various Ducrappy etc.. The Laverda ones were Gold, the Duke ones some were chrome, some were Silver etc..

Those plastic caps are easily lost or broken, it took me years but I finally discovered a welsh plug out of some car works well as a replacement siliconed on.
