So, thanks to Mighty Kentor and slingshot, I've got myself a shiny new toy for the upcoming season - a 1990 GSX-R750 Slingshot!

It replaces my wheezy old FZ750, and is so far an absolute blast. Much more aggressive riding position, and sporty as all hell, even for an older bike.

I fell in love with the old round-eye Gixxers in highschool, so being able to own one in a such lovely condition is fantastic :coffee

Pretty, too! Can't decide if I want to leave it white...





... or maybe put a red stripe on it?



What do you guys think? :laughing :coffee

Nice acquisition. Watch out for the frame "stretch" in the tighter high speed twisties.

Cheers,

Excellent bike's for sure. Very manouverable and alot of fun. I made Abbotsford to Prince George in 4.5hrs on one of them. Have fun on it.

I love the look of the blue, actually... I bet it adds 12HP!

Red I was playing with just for something different. I like simple :)

Hey slingshot, do you still have the stock windscreen for it? I like the short screen for in the city, but I wonder if the stock one would be nicer for touring.

That white/red colour scheme looks awesome! Blue/white is pretty good, too!
