If you're just wanting to cob together a rat bike, you could probably build some type of high exhaust for it, but since I don't think Suzuki ever built a scrambler version of the T350, sounds like there are better candidates if a scrambler is what you want. This bike was an also-ran vs. the ubiquitous Honda CB350, the popular Yamaha R5/RD350, and even the faster Kawasaki A7, so it is going to be tough to source parts. Your life would be easier if you just get it running and in decent shape sticking closer to stock.

On any project like this, I think the first thing is to get it running, get it mechanically reliable and sorted, and assess from there whether you have something there that is worth throwing more money into.
