Convert GoBike front suspension to airshock?

Hi Foldie types

On a previous thread discussing the problems with the GoBike's un-damped front suspension, I posted these pics of a R & M Birdy with Sky Shocks

Can anyone tell me how & where I could get :-

(a) a similar front shock, that I will modify for my GoBike

(b) an improved rear shock to replace the lower quality (non adjustable) unit supplied with my bike

Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

I may pop in to visit Mark Sanders next week and he may be able to suggest something (the rear unit on the iF Reach looks similar to that front one on the Birdy)
