PostPosted: Tue Jun 12, 2012 5:43 pm 
Hi there!

This is or "was" my 1986 Honda Helix. It was a really fun project and I just wanted to share it with some true scooter lovers 8)
Tell me what you think. OH! and the lowering shocks are for sale as well. The man who bought the helix didn't like it sitting so low so I put it back stock for him. I also have other after market parts if any one is interested :D

I went all out fixing her up and bought lowering springs directly from Yahoo Japan. Thank you Google Translate!

Hello,

Do you know where I can purchase a pair of these lowered shocks please?

Like a webshop?

Many thanks for your reply.

Best Regards,
Jsanch

I wish you luck. I tried in vain to get a set from Japan but received few responses and the ones I did receive were only to tell me they don't ship to North America.

Firstcalm is the manufacturer if it helps.

Webike sells lower shocks for the front only, but they're only like 1" lower.

the front suspension is the tough one. if you have overloads in your rears just cut them out. the front is a head scratcher for me
