That brings back memories. I had a '73 SL350 back in high school - it was the blue one with the yellow inset on the tank - really a cool bike. Can't wait to see the pics - enjoy!

Welcome. Where are you located?

There are a couple guys that hang out here that are into SL350s:

Oregon Coast is one. See what he has done with his SL350.
It started looking like this:


(The threads are long but you might enjoy reading them)
This thread starts with another bike but changes over to the SL350 http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=617607

The first big race:

The grand finale

LC Garage is another one that has a fondness for SL350s
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=698196
My guess is he remembers this jump very well.



T98 is LC Garage and 12 is Oregon Coast.



Hopefully we'll be seeing some pictures of your bike soon and the adventures you enjoy with it.
