Almost done with this one. The 7th Slingshot I've owned (previous: 1991/1992? mtb in lilac, 3 Farmboy 29ers, 2004 BigShot Serial #1, and a 2005 folding road).
Picked up locally from the original owner. Frame was requested paintless from the factory and a friend of his did the custom chili pepper job. The peppers are airbrushed on, then covered with clear coat. For a 20 year old frame it's in pretty great shape. The Scotch-ply board looks great.
It didn't come with the original Sling fork, but instead a Kona Project 2 - which also (and unfortunately) has clear coat over the branding. Geometry seems right though (410mm A-C).
Hard to read the serial numbers on the BB due to thick paint, but I'm guessing it's somewhere in the 1993-1994 range based on the dropped top tube and 1" head tube.
Build is likely going to end up as a 1x7 using most of the XT kit from a low mileage (but rusty) 1991 Stumpjumper that I salvaged. Now on the hunt for a 31.8 Syncros post. I originally mocked up a dirt drop build (below), but scrapped that.
