very nice but dealerships are always needing to make 100% markup. Worth 2500 pounds, no more...

Re: Best Slingshot out there?!

So with the ebay listing, about $8,000 USD. It might be a piece of motorcycle history, but I'd have more fun on a 09 GSXR1000.

It's a very nice bike, but that price it should have all NOS body parts. (and some others)

Re: Best Slingshot out there?!

I've come to really like this red and white colour scheme. I think I will have to do a 7/11 project sometime in the future with this paint scheme.

Hope it works ok
Here it is . Sorry the duck tape on fairing
The guy who painted it taped Suzuki up side down on the r side-)
He had smoked something I guess
The worst is that he was the PO !!

Lucky you! We had to make our own. A Y piece from a guava tree , cut two strips from an old truck or car innertube. And a piece of leather from an old shoe.

My favorite also.
