    New question here. Where is my Zokes made?

    I have a 2003 Marzocchi MX Comp coil 105-mm travel suspension fork that I'm selling off. I want to know if my fork is still part of those that were still made in Italy, prior to Marzocchi outsourcing their fork production to Taiwan.

    Knowing this bit of info would greatly help me in determining the value of the fork.

    Any info is appreciated

    Thanks mate.

    Any idea what year Zokes moved most (if not all) of their fork production to Asia?

    Just curious...

    LMAO

    I read it as to WHY they moved - reason was production costs

    Last year was the first year (along with all their manufacturing problems.....

    No worries mate

    I didn't realise they did the move that recently.

    Just sold the MX Comp. I'm glad to have assured the buyer that he was getting an Italian job

    you're not really adding any value to an 03 fork.. being 6-7 years old has more against it than where its made.

    Well, it only had about 1500km of on-road rides on it. And the buyer was encouraged to find out it was made in Italy.

    Well, when they moved is debatable. For an unspecified number of years, the internals were coming from Taiwan, and several lower end ones were outright coming from Taiwan. They moved production fully to Taiwan in 2008.
