Does anyone know where I can get rear shock cartridges for a 1960 FLH?

Good luck with that.. they pop on Ebay every now and then, but other than that, very hard to find. I found a guy on the Hemmings Motor News that claims he can rebuild the old Gabriel absorbers using your exsisting absorber, eyes and plates with all NOS internals and seals. I will post some pics and my opinion as soon as I get mine back from him.
