1985 Sling Shot 24

Very rare cruiser.....

I got this frame from Jeff Haney about 10 years ago, and just recently built it up. I'm not sure how many cruisers were actually built, and there is no way to tell from serial numbers since mine doesn't have one. The paint and decals are original on the frame. 

I have ridden this bike quite a bit and I love it! It's really my first 24" BMX bike I've ever owned. I have always loved Slingshots, and I jumped at the chance of owning a rare cruiser.

I recently won the "best of show" award with this bike at the Hines Park show in Detroit.....thanks again Carlos!
