Snapped a pull shock a while back. Found a 2nd hand one but it's started to leak oil and is now waiting for parts from Europe and it will take time. So I thought I have a go at fixing the old one by building it up with carbon fibre.

8 Layers of carbon to build up the A-frame that snapped and one layer around the main cylinder to anchor it and then poor mans vacum bagging i.e freezer bag and duct tape.
