cheap shox for an old y-11

hi all,

after some years off with various injuries (back, neck and 'tator cuff) and lack off interest, i'm dusting off the ol' y-11 beater that i've got on a shelf in the basement. right now, i've still got the o.g. shox (front and back). my questions are:

1) could you help me with some recommendations for very cheap (got a brand new baby at home) 2-4 year old shox that would be a good fit on this setup? i'm thinking of a price below $150 for both, or is that just too crazy low?

and:

2) who would like to buy some genuine antique bike parts before they hit ebay?


thanks a lot for your help guys,

scott
