    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:

    It started looking like this:
