1983 Sling Shot Pro

One Rare Square Ride!

1983 Pre serial Number Slingshot with all square tubing and 5" headtube.

One of seven made (My dad has one also).  There are only 4 known to still exist as three were destroyed during original testing. 
These first Slingshot frames were made out of 4140 chromoly and were not strong enough for the sport of BMX, later versions were made out of 4130 Chromoly.
