I am getting mad on where to find these two
"" slide the black rubber bumper "" not listed in the honda fiche.
What are they there for and where can I get them?

I looked in my service manual and cannot find the term "black rubber bumper" anywhere in the shock area.
Can you be more specific. I know it may be alot but try to type the whole paragraph in here so maybe someone can figure it out.

Nothin\' flies like a wing!

there is no rubber bumper inside the rear shocks, , if you have followed gambler's photo's, which are good pictures and easy to follow, you should be good to go, are you just changing the oil seals and boots, or are you stripping the full shocker,

I am stripping the two shocks.Bought the two oil seals from Dutch company-very efficient!-and if I knew how to attache a picture, I would like to send one of the bumper with the piece of rubber, so you boys know what is all about.

I think you are talking about the rubber bushing that rests on top of the shock around the shaft. If that is it, they are there to keep the shock from hiting bottom.
