isnt the shocker bigger than a luxe?

besides the fact that the grip is positioned way back on the luxe.

The Luxe could be considered the next evolution in the Shocker line.

it IS the next evolution of the shocker, just look at the power train, there are a few slight variations to it and of course its re-bodied and has the frame relocated. plus, for those who don't know, the Luxe was born in Smart Parts' factory, so I would believe it's safe to say that the Luxe was supposed to be Smart Parts new incarnation of the Shocker, but they sold the design to DLX just before they went under.

again, i know its been modified. i'm just going along with the OP in saying that they look very similar, especially when the frame is modded to sit toward the back of the body.

IIRC the Luxe bolt kit uses 020's on the can and the shocker uses 022's, so the ID of the tube the bolt kit slides into is 1" on the luxe and 1 1/8" on the shocker.

And there's less material on the Luxe as well, although not as little as there could be.

it's not really the price that stops me from doing for people. It's a high risk mod that takes a lot of time.
