Wondering if you can tell me if the down tubes on a 72 SL (twin down tubes) have a kink about a quarter of the way down on both tubes (i am assuming to clear the exhaust headers), and is this kink symmetrical on both down tubes? Whats the best way to see if the frame is bent?
You are correct - the frame down tubes do have a kink as described.
I was going to post a question but you may be able to help. I am restoring an SL350K2 - could you have a look at your bike and tell if the clocks are mounted to a bracket or direct to the top yolk please?
