Not really into muscle bikes but this one caught my eye. Was wondering if they made these in yellow by Chance. The purple paint is flaking off easily and there's a lot of yellow under. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

    They had a Hot Grape color Slingshot. I think it was a 5 speed though.

    Your bike looks to be a 70 with the hockey stick type guard. Here is a catalog pic of it.

    Yes the shifter is not correct along with the seat, sissy bar, pedals, grips, rear wheel. Both tires. Still a great bike like it is or to restore.
