Added info from questions before. Chrome on fork tubes is perfect also. I have the air cleaners and boots to carbs. We ran it about 5 minutes without them getting it started and on the street. When pulled out of storage the filters were deteriorated (they are original foam type) so pulled them to make sure nothing was sucked into engine and we still have the bad filters plus the good inlet tube parts. Just took them off to get it running and test it on street. The exhaust pipes have a baffle in the ends and were NOT trimmed. Baffles held in with a screw so original mufflers can be installed with no problem. I see mufflers quite regularly on ebay and although can be pricy new. they can be reasonable if you get used ones and repaint. Certainly my price is well below what a couple have brought on ebay and the lower price allows for addition of NOS mufflers and still be less expensive for comparable machines. Not often they turn up as nice as this.

Some bidders are not seeing all the photos. I use my own photo service so they are larger and shown below. Please scroll all the way down.

I am very careful about my descriptions having gone on many wild goose chases to see bikes and cars that turned out to be in far less condition than advertised. I am sure many of you have been in the same boat so I will do my utmost to describe this so that there are NO disappointments or surprises.

Fresh out of a heated garage and all original. 1972 Honda SL350K2 with all original parts. This has not been on the road since 1982 but the owner loved it and kept it up with fresh gas and started it on regular basis. It has been extremely well preserved and we only had to give it a mild cleaning to get to this point. Case in point being that he has sprayed some grease on the chrome wheels and spokes and when cleaning it off. the grease came right off easily with no rust and that includes the spokes. I showed a close-up of the spokes showing one I just wiped off and the others with coating still on them. This is 100% complete as came from the factory including the battery cover. the rare small reflector just above the tail light and the tool kit with all tools and the correct embossed kit case and even the cover to the tool box. Also have the original mirrors in perfect condition and the original owners manual in Near Mint condition plus it has a clear New Hampshire title. It was sold new in 1973 but year of manufacture is 1971 and the title reflects that and also notes that it was an overproduction mfg 1971 on the title. As a 1972 it had a few differences besides the color scheme seen on it. it also came with a 21" front wheel instead of the 19" that would have been on the 1971. Condition. unbelievable. All chrome is striking (no rust or discoloration) except on the tail light which is just very good and cam cover on left side which is poor. Gauges are beautiful and clear with just a small bit of chipping in black paint on housings near edge. Tank and side covers are original paint with some chips and light wear and inside of tank is very clean. The alloy fenders are outstanding with no dings or dents. Seat is perfect even underneath with no rusting. Some wear to back edge of tank from rubbing against seat. New battery and plugs. Starts easily and runs great with no smoke on startup or after being warmed up. All lights work and runs great. No clutch problems. Missing the correct mufflers as he put on spark arrestors instead and not very loud. Matching numbers with frame number SL3503011337 and engine number SL350E-3011387 (yes different last 2 numbers but as came with the bike as was normal for Honda). This bike is striking and only paint problem is on the frame loop at back where they had used bungie cord hooks. You can see from my close-ups that I have not cleaned or detailed much and just needs mostly soap and water.

Please feel free to contact me thru eBay with any questions you may have. I will also answer any questions by phone if you wish.

Please note that I use my own picture service so you get larger and higher quality photos and I took many to show every aspect of this bike so you get no unwanted surprises. And unlike many of the listings on eBay. I have gone to great lengths to fully disclose any problems.

I cannot crate and buyer is responsible for shipping or can pick up here. Can hire local to deliver to Forward Air in Boston for an extra $100. 00 if that helps although ground transport is quite a bit cheaper.

Buyer must pay $500. 00 deposit thru paypal within 1 day and balance within 7 days by cash in person or certified or personal check but payment must clear before being shipped.
