1985 Sling Shot Pro

My 1985 Slingshot 20". I think it came out awesome. Very odd bike, but to me, it's a BMX work of art.

Here is my 1985 Slingshot. When I got the frame, it was cracked, painted, and all jacked up. It had the original springs, cable and Fiberglass block. When I saw this I thought it had lots of potential and I always wanted to get my hands on one.
Sent it to Chip at C4 and he did a great job restoring it to it's natural weird beauty. he left the block raw, and I LOVE it!! Thanks to all that gave me a hand to get this beauty together! Recently won 2013 Best of Show at Jersey City, NJ....thanks guys for voting for it!Love it. Here are the parts breakdown:
-- Slingshot frame-- Early rare Peugeot forks (thanks gt350)-- Repro Slingshot decals (also thanks gt350)— Custom made Slingshot Padset-- CW mustache Bars-- Polished Pro neck stem-- Tange headset-- Homemade stem stiffener from fellow member (thanks Folzinal)-- ARAYA rims laced to Suzue hubs-- Sugino CT 3 piece cranks-- Polished Suntour XC II pedals-- Tuf neck sprocket-- Shot Gun Seat-- GT BMX layback seatpost (OG)-- Cheng Shin Tires-- AM'E grips-- Dia compe MX 1000 brakes-- Dia Compe Tech III lever-- Polished Tuf neck Seat clamp
Thanks! Tim

Re: 1985 Sling Shot Pro

Very cool looking ride. Don't see many of these in the street, sweet! Is it noticeably lighter then other rides since it doesn't have a bottom frame bar.

Re: 1985 Sling Shot Pro

Can't believe I haven't commented here, but I guess we corresponded a lot.  Sweet Build, I am glad you went for the fork, it looks awesome on the slingshot and had the correct 5" head tube.
Really nice combination of parts, makes this a great build


Always looking for Slingshots
