Need parts- Manitou Mars Elite

anyone have a 01 or 02 Manitou Mars Elite fork kicken around? Manitou, as well as any distributer that I know of stopped carrying parts for this fork a few years ago. I'd like to save it if I can. I'd be willing to pay a fair price, or trade parts.

I guess you don't want to hear that I just threw such a fork out a couple of months ago. It was trashed. IMO it was a real piece of junk as were all the Manitous I ever rode. Actually they all were great when they worked but I got the feeling that I needed to order them in 6 packs because they never lasted very long.

That's too bad... I basically just need a new TPC lower assembly, one of my old mechanics didn't realize the lower threads were opposite threaded and broke off the bolt. Too much plastic to tig back together...

I just happen to have a 01, purple, Manitou Mars Elite fork in the box, brand new with the manual. It's been in my basement bike shop for around 3 years. I was going to put it on my Specialized Stump jumper. I bought it to upgrade my stock Manitou Fork, I am a techno geek and saw what a better fork it was. Since then, I got another mountain bike and never made the switch.

Let me know if you want it, we'll see what we can work out.
