    My Marzocchi colection is much more exstensive ....
    I have pretty much every cool single crown through axle frok they made cept for a RAC and I'm still looking ! Most of the ones I see on Ebay end up being bogus .

    This fork is seriously the sickest Zoke I have ever seen , each piece is perfectly machined to a quaility you just dont see anymore .
    The serial # is 144 , as I remember Marzocchi U.S.A only brought in a very limited number of these forks and Marzocchi Italy my have made less than 500 , possibly only 150 per year ? I think orignal shop cost for this fork was $1,400.00 back in 97!

    Those are 1998 super Ts. I had one. There was a 1997 super T as well, but it had a different arch assembly (wrapped around the entire leg assembly).

    I have a friend who has a 99 Mr. T - been in the closet until just recently - now he has it on his HT!! - I told him to mount it on a plaque before he gets a mark on it... too late.

    His brother ran a 98 super T until this year when he broke the arch again and decided to get a 888rc....


    Both work superb - not as feature filled as todays, but the damping is good and the forks are sweet!

    Thanks. I had the same thought, but the fork was used when I bought it, so I figued I might as well use it. The original MonsterT-esque decals were very cool, too. Too bad they're not available anymore.



    And yes, Jayem, the '97 was the pimpest of the pimp pre-2000 Super's. That wrap arch was the shiz. If you know of one anywhere...

    Cheers.

    SprungShoulders,

    I am not understanding your 97 Fork comment. I have never seen the wrap around?
    Can we dig up a picture somehow? I'd Love to see it. I got to put up some pictures.
    I am a DieHard MaziMan. I have the 98 Z1 Dual,98 Mr.T 4" and as said before,
    the Jewel, 98 Mr.T #33. The newest I have is a 02 Monster. Two of them. Peace.

    Good job! sick

    i remember seeing the Z1 dual/duel in the Euro mtb mags. they looked so bad a$$. those are what encouraged me to make the old Rock Shox DHO forks into a singlecrown thru axle. stiff, rad and light. i was an idiot and gave the fork to a friend who is now not my friend. suck ball$.

    888rc2x is either going on my prototype Nemesis Project DH bike ( which you havent seen and dont ask I'm not posting it till I get the patent varified )
    Or the 888rc2x is going to be mounted to a Sinister R9 thansk to FTW

    The Z-1 duel is just part of my personal colection as with the Super T which will never be mounted to a bike .

    The 66vf2 was for a customer , pretty sure he will post pic's when it's on his bike .

    yeah why do you have those covers over your brake lines? compression? protection? insulation?
    Looking for a 7.87 x 2.25mm shock, any brand any age that runs well!! cheap would be appreciated!

    The Covers are

    just for protection. I guess anyone riding in the Snow could get
    both. Protection and Insulation. Most guys hate um,say it's
    ugly. Clean lines,a pure look, if you will,is what they want. Now
    on the Tazer,I only have it to protect the crown,I cant get it off of
    there unless I run it down my stem. Which is somthing I am going
    todo. Here is two more shots. I wanted the Super T. on there,only
    the HeadTube is just too Dang Big. I bought a brand new
    Drop Crown,brand new Steerer Tube to possibly make it work. In the
    end,I only got 5 3/4" from the crown to seal. Give or take. If you look
    real hard at the bottom crown,you can see where it was at orginally.
    [two dust line's} I never did run it,It was'nt right.

    Jayem,do you have a shot of the stickers on the Fork? I have a bunch
    of Mazi sticker kits I was thinking of putting on. IE,cutting out certain
    ones. I have never seen the OG stickers on that fork? Every one I have
    seen is raw?

    Last: Evil4bc,I'm sorry for that story of your fork,it hurt just reading it.
    The things we do. I'm out.

    That looks trippy,

    that's a bummer you dont have a good shot of the other.
    Which one is on there now? With the Kit you have alot
    of options. I just havent done it yet as I keep thinking there
    was no stickers on that fork. If that be the case,then she stays
    raw. I tried to find out if there was stickers,no luck? I remember
    a Old N.Shore Video that starts out with that fork and a wheel
    being ridden up a fire road,a close up of just that. I still have it
    somewhere. It was raw as well if memory serves me? {Iron Chef}
    Out.

    I don't have it anymore.

    For the last pic there though I painted the lowers silver before putting the stickers on. It was sort of a "satin silver" effect, looked really nice on the fork.
