Whats up CF this is my 1990 Slingshot 750 "Predator"
I first purchased the bike back in 2011 in stock form with plans on building a custom streetfighter... Took it apart and basically got as far as I could (not far at all lol) before I realized I didn't have the time or more importantly the skill to build a reliable and safe machine... So I hauled the build around for a few years with hopes of seeing it done one day somehow.
About a year ago I listed some spare parts for sale on Craig's, and by way of destiny came across a guy (later I would learn was Sebspeed) who was looking for parts to buy. We got to talking about bikes, shared some ideas, I showed him my bike and the rest is history. I'm enjoying the bike and will own it forever.
I was hesitant on entering FOTM out of fear guys wouldn't approve of a "built" bike, but I'm passionate about this bike and I know Seb put serious TLC into it. So this is for the bike and builder, and a fair shot at being appreciated for the kick-ass bike I believe it is. Thanks guys and good luck to all entry's!
