    Taking a road trip this weekend

    Just found a beautiful 99SLTH with a blown motor that Im going to be picking up Saturday. Only bad part is its going to be a 500 mile trip one way. SO now its time for me to go make a cradle so I can haul it back in the bed of my truck. I will be posting pics as I go along, as this is going to be my winter project. I was looking to find a 3 seater to add to my 94 SL650 and 95 SL750. Is there anything special I need to know about this model?

    Bryan, Congrats on your find.. You may want to look into using USHIP. I just had a Pro785 shipped from Flordia to Rochester NY for $400. Best of luck with the new ski

    Everything made it home and I now have a project. 1999 slth with a blown motor. Everything else on the ski is in pristine condition. Now to assess what I need to get. Looks most likely to be a complete rebuild. I'm guessing this should be a 50 mph ski when its finished

    I will work on that tonight.......its really in great shape, not fading and very few small chips in the gel. I got the engine out and looked the whole ski over and all it needs is engine work and fuel lines replaced....damn grey fuel lines.....
