Kevin,
          There were 2 types of shocks fitted to the Dragonfly. The early type had waisted eyes on the units - rubbers for these are available from Jim Hunter (he specialises in repro rubbers for British bikes). Later shocks had parallel eyes - the rubbers would be the same as those used on Triumph/BSA/Norton machines with 3/8"dia mounting bolts.

    Regards,
                   Eddie.
