    MT3 Decals - here you go as promised, there were actually 3 variations (I still have 2 sets of each never used) - I have only done the set that gives the best contrast - the other 2 had lots of white and hence outlines were not clearly defined.

    Print the attachment on A4 - this will give you full size.


    To see where the main ones are fitted then see posting number 659

    Also check out posting number 522 .....

    Nice! Those TT Hawk decals are clutch too.

    Surteess that's fantastic, just what I wanted. The true temper ones are a bonus too. I'll post pics of my rebuild when it's done but be warned its no retro build...

    Glad they worked out for you both (plus others) - am suprised that SS did not have OEM ones to scan from?.

    New Tires fitted.

    Got some pretty cool 26 x 1.5" tires - can't wait to see how they perform on the road later tomorrow.

    Notice the suspension on handlebar stem and double waterbottle holders .... same setup as my touring bike.

    Yeah. Perfectly exemplifies the best use for a slingshot.

    New (old) period correct cranks for my late 90s Sling....(note the knobby tires - this thing gets ridden seriously and is my main MTB)



    The curtains now match the drapes.

    +1 on the brakes. I have several pair of those Cane Creeks, and one set graces a Slingshot.

    Noodles goes to the races

    Well she's back from a long stint hanging in the shed and a short stay in the frame hospital. No longer a single speed she now has gears on the back at least and is a much more enjoyable beast to ride. First and probably last race was against a steam train here in central Victoria, which I thought appropriate somehow-aesthetically beautiful but obsolete technology and all that. Train won...
    Whats next for Noodles? Well, having decided I like her again in this mocked up form, I'll break her down for the respray and decals (thanks to Surteess), go 11 speed then a bit of bike packing and long gravel grinds that normal folks buy a CX bike for. Looking forward to it!

    Pretty hard to come by actually. You'd have an easier time finding and using a 1" Yeti (AccuTrax) fork.

    thanks Rumpfy. Quick Google search shows that fork to be rare as well..any other suggestions?

    Timing, patience, and daily searches. If you get desperate enough, buy an entire other bike and pirate the fork from it.

    Other high end vintage options:

    IRD, Bontrager, Syncros Powerlite.

    Slightly less expensive, easier to find options:

    Ritchey Logic, Koski Druatrac (great fork BTW), Tange Switchblade

    If you want something that has a similar look to the Slingshot fork, a non suspension corrected Kona fork has the right look. Should be relatively cheap and easier to find than the others as well.
    Need: McMahon brake for roller cam mounts, Mountain Goat fork.
