Why do you think they call it the Slingshot. It will be out of production in a few years.

This is Just the list of Victory's. I have also rode and owned Honda's, Kawasaki's, Suzuki's, Harley's. Some old European bike. Can't remember the name. It was a 3 speed and I started riding on a 50cc bike that Sears sold. Some time around 1967. I have had my motorcycle license since 1969.

I dont really trust the OEM seatbelts in my truck either. Mainly due to the auto re-tractor things. I had a 90 mustang and retro fitted Simpson belts. I know they will draw up and stay tight. OEM auto belts your relying on a weight to get slung fast enough to lock up.

Curious minds want to know why a deadly driver was driving it.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.

I like it too but regardless of how the frame began life, it is no longer a Slingshot due to now having four wheels.

G'day,
