1994 Slingshot

Retro Newbie
Almost completed this 94 Slingshot build. I picked this up as a complete but unloved bike in Melbourne about 12 years ago and it was in a very sorry state. When I moved to the UK it came with me but remained untouched until last year. Thanks to lockdown I finally found the time to tackle it. The frame was brought back to life by Argos Racing cycles and the components were slowly cleaned and re-assembled or replaced but I’ve tried to keep things as original as possible. Slingshots are rare in the UK but I’ve not seen another in this XL size.

Nice! Always wondered how the larger frames would look. That steerer tube!

Curious: Did you do anything to the glassfibre board? I guess you had to dismantle the frame for the respray?
