Its a mountain cycle rear shok , hence the company color way died elastomers .
Fisher RS1 featured a coil shok
Girvan dampers were yellow

I’m with Underground and Ernesto, mainly because the Proflex/Girvin/K2 rear shock didn’t have eyelets if I remember correctly…it was fixed to the mono-stay at both ends.
