1971 Suzuki T250R--green

I have a 1971 Suzuki T250R that I bought new and have been the only owner. I rode it through high school and college, then retired it for 20 years while the kids were growning up. I got it out 10 year ago and it started and ran it awhile. I still had the love of a bike and bought a Harley Road Glide.
My 250 is like new with 24,000 miles. A couple of years ago, I had it cleaned,tuned, new pistons and rings, and new tires and rubber pegs. I runs fine.I also have the owners manual and tool kit that came with it. I would like some help in determining what it is worth and wondering if anyone on this site would be interested in buying it. Or how and where do I list it for sale?
I tried to attach a picture of it, but can't figure out how to do that. Can you help me? Thanks.

woohoo. that is sweat. I have the slightly older brother to that, 1970 T250II. They are so much fun to ride and cruise so easily at 65 to 70.

Yours is in amazing shape, and the original owner as well. You can never sell that, never.

How much are you asking for it? I may be interested and I have a lot of vintage contacts who would as well. Great looking bike

It actually took me a few moments to notice the bike, all I saw was that 356 in the background. My all-time fav car.
