I agree, a very good find for only $50. My wife had that fork on her bike. It's about a '96 vintage if that helps. Although, I don't know whether it was stock on that model of put on afterwards.
The shock consists of a stack of elastomers on each side. The knob on each side is for "pre-load". You can also unscrew the whole cap and regrease the elastomers. It's not a complicated tear down.
However, if the elastomers are shot (like the one's on my wife's bike), find a replacement set will be difficult and costly. It's almost easier to just buy a new fork if it comes down to that.
