I feel kinda bad because I have the exact axle you need, but I can't actually help you. I know that it's very different from the circus hexlock axles, so if you were thinking of going that way, it won't work.

Honestly your best chance is probably a random used bike. Buying a 2005 used bike for 150 just for the axle is super extreme, though.

I left about a thousand voicemails trying to get an axle a few months ago. Good luck.

I have no further recommendations based on this comment.
I have one. Buy a RS or Fox fork.... :-)

Yeah I'd have to agree, at this point, you almost have no other options other than finding someone with an old broken one.

Shockcraft in New Zealand has the axle I need for around $70 NZD (about $60 CAD) plus $20 shipping to Canada so $80 total. Might just suck it up and buy it. Still cheaper than buying a new fork, but way more than I'm comfortable paying for a fork that's well over a decade old

This clearly is your only solution, I would suggest sucking it up despite the price.

There are a couple of custom machinists that do axles but, for the life of me I can't remember they're name. I know they on PB too. I think? It's like 'anyaxle.com' or similar. Soz to be no help what so ever Big Grin
Maybe the mechanics quick question thread will know....

Try getting a hold of the folk's at Robert Axle project. They may be able to help, and they are down in Oregon.

considering what they charge for their regular axles, I wouldn't consider it help. I

As the only person here with one of these forks, of say it's worth it. They're actually quite good, and they hold up, decent quality seals and internals. Only overhauled it once since 2005, and even then that was to attempt to lower it

How easy is it to user service? If I'm ordering anyways may as well get a new seal kit, as I've noticed oil sticks to the legs after being compressed. This will be the first time I do a complete rebuild, although I am fairly mechanically inclined

Also how can I tell whether or not mine has the SPV damper? And do I need some sort of fork oil for it?

It's been a while but it's basically very easy if you've ever opened a circus expert. It's probably almost the same as servicing a circus comp, or nay circus without an air cartridge.

Oops sorry I remever using 10wt or 7.5 at moto fork oil and/or I think I used some leftover Mobil 1 5w20 for one side, may be wrong, like I said it's been years but it wasn't hard. When you remove the rebound adjust know make sure you tighten to remove the hex bolt underneath, it backs out the other way. Pretty sure I got the manual via an online downloadable PDF

Ya I took a look at the date posted, figured those argyles weren't as brand new as they look back then. Good color combo though.
