Ikon Shocks USA is now live!
« on: Nov 14, 2016, 10:34:15 »
Hello gang,

Very excited to more formally share this news - After several months of preparation and planning, and a few weeks (and weekends!) of midnight oil dusting off my old website chops, RestoCycle launched this last night:

http://www.ikonshocksusa.com



A bit of background: As many of you might know, a very nice fellow named Dave Gardner handled most of the west coast sales for Ikon Shocks out of his shop in San Francisco for many years, but Dave has retired, and we have taken on dealership for Ikon in his place. I caught wind of the opportunity to take it up a few months ago, and a big pallet of shocks, parts, and factory tools arrived a month or so later, and here we are, and very excited about it.

Ikon was created when Koni BV withdrew from the motorcycle suspension business about 15 years ago, and the current Ikon 7610 is a direct descendent of the legendary Koni shock. In fact, we can repair many of those Koni shocks using modern Ikon parts and seals - they are direct descendents in design, style and construction. I've used Ikon on my bikes, and they really provide a great combination of performance, vintage style, and value, and come in many styles and trim combinations to pretty closely resemble many of the stock shocks that were OE on our cintage bikes. What you might REALLY be interested to know is that the flagship 7610 shock comes in a variety of styles and color combinations with black or chrome springs, covers, and body, which  you can take advantage of to get a quality rear shock that looks correct for your build. And if you are building something custom and need something special that's no problem either.

And so to celebrate our launch we are offering a 15% discount on all Ikon shocks till November 27. Use the discount code DOTHETON2016 at checkout. Or if you just want to look around the new site, please do, and your feedback would be most welcome.

If by chance you'll be at the International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, California next week, by all means please stop by the Ikon booth and say hello. I'm the big doofy guy with the RestoCycle/Ikon shirt :-).


With sincere thanks for your support,

Had Ikon build a set of shocks for the 'Ace'.

Look good, work great, highly recommended.

I bought my ikons back in march, so prior to your purchase, but they are amazing shocks.  They were pretty much setup perfect for the bike based on my info so I haven't fiddled with them yet.  Depending on budget, these will be my first choice next time.
