First of all, thanks for your replies, folks. I do appreciate your suggestions. However, I'm still scratching my head a bit. I know I can go online any day and buy new shocks that fit the 750 ideally. However, I'm looking for an Ebay deal. I don't mind doing a bit of modification to make something work but I don't want to bang my head against it only to find I wasted the money and got nothing for it but a headache. As an example, a set of Progressive 440s (model number 440-4050C) with only 1500 miles on them is currently listed for a pretty good price (about 1/3 of new). They came off a Harley FXR bike (don't know any more than that). Of course, checking the internet to see whether they fit a 750, it says they don't. But the same would be said about a VN900 seat on a 750 which we know can be done without too much trouble.
So... what have you all found that works reasonably well and has anybody worked with that particular model of Progressive 440s?
BTW, with regard to weight, when my wife and I ride together we put about 375 pounds on the it without luggage and I'm not saying SHE'S heavy! She thought she was marrying Robert Redford and got the Pillsbury Doughboy instead!
