Motorcycle Rear Shocks

We carry one or the largest ranges of motorcycle rear shocks for classics.

We have a wide range of Hagon and Girling rear shocks and suspension units available

Girling Suspension Units History

The well known oil filled Girling shocks were commonly used on most British motorcycles. They were later replaced by Gas Filled Shocks. The Girling factory was on King’s Road, Birmingham.

Burton Bike Bits carry some Genuine Girling Suspension Units and Springs.
