SW shocks

I just picked up a 72 Honda CB350 Four, 17,000 miles on it. Some previous owner had installed SW shocks on the rear (blue spring, blue/black decals). Given the miles on the bike, someone decided the stock shocks were no good anymore, especially that shock of that vintage were crap by 15,000 miles.

Does anyone have experience or knowledge about rebuilding these older SW shocks? Can they be disassembled and rebuilt or upgraded?

S&W shocks are not rebuildable, but if you are handy (and a bit brave) you can make them better than they are now.
