I listed it there about 4 or 5 years ago and had no luck, it has no title so I didn't want to go through all the garbage to try and get one.
However, I think I am going to give it a go and see if I can get a title for it and if I do I may tear it down and give it a shot. It turns over but doesn't go, bearings in the wheels are froze and carbs need to be overhauled.
I have been wanting a scrambler type bike so this may turn into one before its over..

Ok guys, any tips on restoring this bike? I kinda want to scramble it, high pipe and ever so slightly taller suspension. Am I crazy?
Any of you guys have a service manual or some old parts collecting dust?

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.

Yup, send it to me

I'd love to have one as it was one of my first street bikes... pretty simple machines.

thanks! I don't really want to rat it out but it likely wont be 100% stock. When my bike sells (check the ADV classifieds) I'll start working on it- I just hope I can get a title for it, last time it was registered was 1975 I think? And the PO has passed away about 20 years ago. I got it from his nephew.

This bike is for sale, no time or money to restore it and don't want to see it rust away.

me too! I am highly flexible with the price!
I also have a 1973 Honda CR250 Elsinore I am looking to let go.
Both need a restoration.

you know, I still have this thing and could be talked into letting it go for a very fair price.
Or trade it out for some DR650 parts

yep breaks my heart but I need the funds and its been for sale for like 7 years.
I got it running in the late 90s and pushed it aside so I know it would have been a good project.
