Default Blown Shock

So it turns out my rear shock,(under the seat) blew out the seals and fluid is now being soaked up with cat litter in my garage. The mechanic said that the shock is no longer being produced by Vict and the only possibility is getting it rebuilt. Open for suggestions of places to get this done.

Here's what I'd be doing...
+ Search the forums for your model and see if that shock is rebuildable or has a viable replacement.
+ Search Ebay and Amazon.
+ Check out shock mfrs web sites and/or contact them to see if they provide a unit that will work for your bike.
+ Good luck.

I'd keep an eye on eBay for one, i don't think that one for a Vegas will work but I'm not sure. You could also give carver performance a call I've heard they do good work on rebuilding shocks
