Front & Rear pressure gauge

With an '86, I have front air valves along with the rears. I see a 0-20 PSI gauge at J.C Whitney. Of course, the shipping is more than the gauge. Does anyone know of any Brick and mortars that might carry low pressure gauges? Thanks.

For now, I'm just using the old fashioned pen type that they seem to give away with every car or truck I've bought.

Have a really nice digital guage but there's not enough room to get it on the valve stem properly.

Now I see why some of the others have switched to 90 valves stems.

I got a perfect round gage at a Fleet Farm place. I can look up the brand and model number and post it later. Holds the reading until a button is released too. I replaced my air compressor angled head, that was near impossible to fill the back tire without bending over the stem, with the good old fashioned kind of simple chuck. They both work perfectly. Of course you never know what you're gonna find out on the road, so I am still debating getting angled stems.

Hey guys, I think the original post was about an air pressure gauge for the shocks, not the tires. Aren't they different?

It sure was. Oops!

Got a progressive pump similar to this, but mine has an actual hose on it too. Came with the bike, so I'm not sure where the PO got it.

I have a bicycle fork pump with the gauge built in that works great. I'll have to check the model/manufacturer when I get home. Here's a link to one that looks pretty good. http://www.performancebike.com/shop/...tegory_ID=5423

Dooohhh!!! I went back and read the original post and see the inference that values on the front aren't universal... thus implying shocks. Hey, it's Friday, and I am in a rush to get out on the road.

Yeah, that's what happened with me.
