1985 Sling Shot Pro

1985 Sling Shot Pro

Only known Chrome Slingshot

I wanted Chrome Slingshot for long time and every Chrome Shop I approached said " it is not possible with how
close the tubes are at the bottom bracket, we will not be able to chrome that area."  Well lucky for me I knowJeff Haney, Jeff said it would not be a problem for their Chrome Shop Revcore Finishing Services, and he personallysaw it thru to the end.  The result is a Chrome job I would put up against any Factory Chrome BMX Bike.  ThanksJeff and the Team at Revcore.
Springs, Cables and Wedge are original to the frame.
Frame needed nice forks and I selected the Redline Pro-Line Forks for the 5" head tube and also because they arethe closest to what Slingshot offered ( though they produced only a handful of their own forks).
This build gave me a chance to use my NOS 175mm Clemtwin Crank Setup and special thanks to Vaughn Ulmer forthe matching Blue Chainrings and Blue Araya Rims.
Front Hub is a polished Son Lite and the rear is the required but very rare Clemtwin Twin Sprocket setup.
I used the Kashimax Aero Seat with DX PostSE Power Wing Bars with Am' Cam Grips and Pro Neck Stem
Brake is MX1000 with Tech III LeverPedals are Bullseye Chrome with Blue Cages, special thanks to Steven Jackson at Bullseye helping me secure 2 RH spindles for these pedals, as both drive arms are RH.
As a final touch I had custom "Ghost" Slingshot decals made so as to not take away from the Chrome job.
Hope you all like it as much as I do.

Re: 1985 Sling Shot Pro

Perfect. What a great choice on every component, color and especially the use of that drive train with the slingshot frame- those cranks with that frame makes this bike over the moon. Instant Fav.

Re: 1985 Sling Shot Pro

Wow. Awesome build. I have a set of clemtwins I've been saving to do the same thing. Just can't find the frame.
It looks fantastic. My favourite bike on the site by far.
How does it ride?

Re: 1985 Sling Shot Pro

Awesome!!
I thought about chroming my Slingshot when I was building it, but I had a NOS black/white Haro Circuit Board number plate that I was going to use, and I wanted the frame to be black also.
Jeff did a great job chroming the frame! It's about the same as chroming a Quadangle.
I really look forward to seeing this in person! I have been so busy at work, about the only free time I have is on Sundays! LOL!
Great build Don!
