Interesting Honda SL350 History

I recently came across this interesting photo of a 1971 SL350 that set a world jumping record. On March 5, 1972, Gary Davis used it to jump over 21 cars (138 feet) breaking Evel Knievel's record of 19 cars set the year before.

The bike was totally stock; they just stripped the lights, removed the mufflers, and went for it!

Another interesting photo that I'm sure some have seen is this one with "The Duke" tooling around on this 69-70 model complete with camera mounts in between scenes.

And this 1971 with George C. Scott

And Charlton Heston in "The Omega Man"

Anyone else have any unique photos or stories with the SL350?

1971 Yamaha DT-1 250

Awesome, thanks for posting! I've got a 1971 model waiting in the wings for a rebuild. Never rode it yet but I'm guessing it'll be a fun back road burner.

I love the orange...
