Technics SL-22 Turntable info.

Decided to get my vinal out to relive the 1970's all over again, thankfully I still have may hair now where did I put my Angels Flight pants and platform heels?
Thanks so much for providing this service, now I need to get a replacement belt and start rocking all over again. I do hope it makes me feel 35 years younger!
