    Looks like they are just over .5" longer than the T140 shocks, you could always do a comparison with the Maxtons on the Commando!!!!, it look like they have 10mm mount holes though.

    One thing that did impress with Hagon, I rang them to ask if they could be made to work in an upright position as I didn't think they would clear the chain if fitted upside down, they said they could build them either way so I ordered them, they arrived the next day! cannot argue with that kind of service.

    Latest Hagons are NOT as slim as the old Girlings-don't ask me how I know, Girling , old Hagon springs will not fit latest Hagon shocks!!!!

    Ikon has come out with a product line specifically for the vintage Brit bike market. It is much less expensive ($375) than
    their top of the line shocks. I suspect they are to compete with Hagons (which are OK) but are better quality IMO. They
    look like Hagons and are rebuildable. They are not adjustable for rebound. I have a set on my Commando, but they
    configure them for different bikes. Google IKON USA

    Do they have extra clearance on their bottom to clear the chain guard?

    I presume you must be referring to what they call:
    76 Series Shock Absorbers/ Ikon Basix Series

    Unfortunately these are not listed / offered for the T140.

    In fact, Ikon appear to offer no shocks at all for the T140. The only thing they list that I can see are fork springs...

    Their on-line catalogue is a horror story in my opinion. The shocks to which I am referring is here:

    My question answered:

    <Created by Ikon USA for the U.S., Canadian and South American markets (and not available elsewhere), the new Ikon Albion was specifically designed for '60s, '70s and '80s Brit bikes>

    Well yeah, those Albion’s are not available in the UK. But on top of that, Ikon do not list any shocks for T140s. Shame as their Basix range look good for normal road use.
