Marzocchi Fork Identification

8 posts in this topic

These came with a bike I bought recently but I'm not actually sure which model they are and I was wondering if anybody knew?

  • They appear to be Marzocchi judging by the M arch (Suntour built possibly?)
  • They have 140m travel
  • There are no adjusters top or bottom
  • There is a 20mm through axle help on by pinch bolts (The QR bit doesn't look original)
  • They weight a ton!

I can't find anything like them spec wise, I wondered if they were a hybrid of parts of others similar forks. Any help would be appreciated, also an indication of value as I don't think i need them as spares!

Initial thoughts based on the description (photos didn't load) was something along the lines of the original DJ series, but I don't think they were 140mm long form memory. Now that pictures have come through the crown design looks similar, so I'd imagine something from a similar era, which at a guess would be circa 2003/2004ish.

Yeah that was my thoughts but the long travel was confusing me! The dirt jumper series seems to have adjusters too, which these don't

I was gonna say Dirt Jumper III from 2004, as they look very similar, but you're right, they have adjusters...

I don't remember the DJ's being massively heavy, either.

2.5kg iirc for the steel stanchion versions, the alloy versions were much lighter though

Any idea of value of these? The prices seem to vary wildy and i know longer travel straight steerer 1 1/8th forks are sought after as they are thin on the ground. I was thinking £80-100 with a respray, fresh decals, seals and oil

I personally wouldn't have put too much value on them, they're non adjustable and the steel stanchions so would guess they're either a base level oem trail fork or DJ.

Cleaned up and serviced I would say 50-75 off the top of my head, knowing which model they are might help.

Fwiw I paid 80 for my 44 rc3ti, 110 for my 44 tst micro and 180 for my x fusion vengeance hlr. All straight steerer and the x fusion are the best of the lot and in many ways equivalent to most modern forks.

I dont think there DJ 3's they predominantly came in 100mm, 140mm of travel for a Dj is odd..
