1973 BMW R75/5: Refinishing Rear Shocks

I removed and inspected the Boge rear shocks to see if they could be used. I really wanted to retain the stock chrome shock covers if possible. I decided they are still serviceable, so I refinished them including powder coating the springs and removing the deep scratches in the shock covers. I wrote up a web page on this you can find on the right side of the page, and here is the direct link to it.

Below are a couple of the pictures included in the web page write up.
