Bring out yer dead (is my old SID SL dead yet?)
I have a 1999 SID SL on my son's mountain bike. It is perfect for him. Super light and tunable to his low weight. I'd hate to have to replace it until he needs a beefier fork.
When I was putting it back together last night after servicing it the threads containing the dual air spring snapped (!) right where they stick out of the bottom of the legs and where they contain the schrader valve.
The part I need is labeled no. 32 on page 35 of this document:
Does anyone know where I can find this air shaft or one from a more recent model that would work? I wouldn't need the larger sleeve that is shown covering the inner shaft.
For example, there is this part on ebay that I thought could replace the whole dual air internals on that side (but its $50....):

Any input would be welcome.
