    1971 . Anyone here have one? I have had mine for about 15 years and it is in rough looking shape, gonna sell it. Does anyone know how much I should ask?
    Needs restoration but the motor is tight.

    Alot easier to tell with pictures. I'd say no more than $500 based on your description. Very nice ones can be had for under $1000.

    Pictures needed. Running good, all stock, restorable cosmetics, clean title....might be worth a grand or more. Non-runner, missing lots of parts, hacked up, no title, etc., lucky to get a couple hundred.

    I'll see if I can find a pic of it and post it tomorrow, It's all there but theres a good bit of rust on it and like everyone else says, it was running when it was parked.

    I love those bikes! I've been keeping my eye out for one but they are not real commen. Only 2 have turned up around here that I've seen recently and they were both trashed. I've got a '69 t500 and really want a t350 to go with.

    How about a picture of the T500? I've got my eye on one that I'm looking at now.

    Next time I'm at the warehouse I'll get one. It's being "worked" on right now, matter of fact I'm supposed to go parts shopping at the yard Sat for it.

    The T350 is a very cool bike - Suzuki's answer to the Hondas

    Just figured I would sneak back into this thread and show a pic.
    It's not in great shape but almost all the bike is there.

    If it runs, perhaps $500, otherwise half that or less. Just a guesstimate, these things can be all over the map.

    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 :D

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