What you can guys tell me about this Boxxer?

I was thinking of buying this Boxxer fork off a guy on eBay but need help with a little more information.

Here are the pictures:





What model and what year boxxer is this? What would be a fair price? He says it has been only used a couple times and is in great condition.

Any other input?

Thanks for any info you can help with! I appreciate it.



(EDIT: Sorry, I just noticed my horribly dyslexic thread title, lol!)

he had an auction for the pictures frame and the fork and no one bought it. I emailed him asking if he would just sell the boxxer.

It's a mutt. 2001 lower crown, 2003 upper crown, 1999 (or 2000?*) lowers.

Don't exactly remember the year those lowers looked like that.

I'm reading my March 07 BIKE magazine as we speak and there is an article on Rockshox's 1999 prototype BoxxAir. These two forks sure look simialar....

Lowers look like 2003 but it is a hybrid. Be carefull.

Just checked mine. 2003 Boxer Race but don't like it. The anodised lower is not a colour I have seen and I can't place a red pair.

they (lowers) are a 99 or 2000, as stated before. I wouldn't buy that old of a fork, no matter how good of condition it is in (unless you have a ton of extra money lyin' around, in which case, I could help take it off your hands )

As previously stated thy are 2000 Boxxers, this was before they had the Race, Team, WC levels. They were and still are a very nice fork to ride/ My mate had some on a Trek Diesel up until 4 months ago.
