Default Shock a Billy 1995 on pivot hardware

Can anyone tell me who produced the original pivot hardware for the last Shock a Billys? I am trying to track some bits down. I think it could be a futile task though.

Have you tried contacting Wendyl, can't think of anybody else who would have any.

Have you not heard back from her or does she just not have any?

Wendyll let me know she had none of them.

I think if i search enough I will find them, I have managed to source new bushings for the prototype frame I have so I think I might be able to discover who the bushes came from for the later version.

Small update. I contacted Serrotta bikes and they said to try McMaster Carr, I have found the grooved O-ring seals used and I just need to measure the size and hopefully I will find the bushings too. Sadly the site is a load of pap and I am locked out for 24hr's as I have viewed too many products

I believe I have found out where the original hardware came from. The only slight problem is they wont supply outside of America!

If any American members can help me out I will make it worth there while. They are based in Santa Fe Springs, CA.
