Need help with 02 C DALE Jekyll 600

I just purchased a 2002 Cannondale Jekyll 600 MTB from a friend of mine who bought it brand new and never rode it. Been sitting in his basement for 13 years still perfect. 3 years ago he did some maintenance but never touched the Fox Float RC shock or the Super Fatty Head Shok. I filled the rear shock to 140 lb psi. It seemed to hold pressure but when I sat on it in lock out mode it would slowly move and I hear a hissing sound. I see there is a rebuild kit for $15 online. What should I do and does the head shock need attention as well? Trying to do the best for the least $$$

I just went through my rear shock using that vid and it was very easy so it is worth a shot for $15. I'm sure their is a vid on youtube covering how to at least do an oil change on the head shock.

Air pressure & greasing guide for the headshok fork: http://www.eighty-aid.com/sites/defa..._manual_en.pdf

Unfortunately, you can't buy parts unless you're a Cannondale dealer. However, I will say that I've never had to service my Super Fatty DLR 80 over around 1200 miles of use. I just ride it and occasionally add air, but if it ever does crap out... yeah, that'll suck.
