I found this bike, a pro-flex 756, in a dumpster. As you can see in the pictures, the front and rear shocks are missing. After a little research, I discovered the parts I would need to replace these use elastomer. I am not a fan.
What I would like to know is, can I replace these missing parts with something spring based, or perhaps another equally useful alternative? I'm looking for the cheapest parts for now, as I'm new to biking / don't have alot of money / have no idea what I'm doing. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
P.S. If these pictures are not sufficient, I can take some more and upload them, just let me know. This is true for the information I provided for the bike as well. Let me know if I missed anything important.
