'The Honda SL350 was a bike that defied all odds. By 1969 the formula of a street-scrambler didn't cut it anymore, so in 1969 Honda responded with a new design of its beloved 350 twin, the SL350. The production bike was overweight, over styled and had a tendency to spit riders off like watermelon seeds, but the Honda SL350 had one thing going for it: The motor. Sharing the frame and electric start motor of the CB/CL series, the first SL350 brought out in 1969 was nothing more than a CB350 with off-road down pipes, and cross braced handlebars.'

In 1970 the SL350 got a new twin downtube frame and a kick-start only motor, unique to the model. the electric start was deleted, making the motor unique to the SL series. A 19-inch front wheel was added and, somehow, the weight was reduced to 368lb, wet. And the SL's power came down to 30hp (from the CB's 36 at 9,000rpm.) Over 300,000 CB350-series bikes were sold in the USA alone.

This SL350 is a solid, original bike that has been in recent dry storage and thus is sold 'as-is' with the advice that it be run through the standard safety checks before it is ridden again.
