If the things you own end up owning you, it's better to be owned by some cool things.

 Where are you hiding the rest of it !   :D  Suzuki was a little sneaky with those 350's. They are actually only 315cc,kind of a bored out 250.

I had a T200 for a while, fun little bike although I never understood why they tuned down the T250 with six gears for the T200 with 5. A friend bought it for $100 all there, and was going to use it as an obstacle in skateboard contest. So I told hi I would get him one from the slavage yard if he let me work on the T200. Saved one from being thrashed.

 A pair of chuckleheads had it. Not sure what the story is of the rest of the parts. I was hoping to find someone that needed parts, seems a shame to cut it up but the one guy that needs it is 2600 miles away.

 chuckleheads is a word used when the one you want to use isn't allowed. A guy in California wants the bike, I took it apart for palletizing for shipment. I hope he doesn't want it put back together after checking shipping quotes. He used to race a 250 and always wanted the 315 engine. I hope there's enough left to build.

Shipping is too high, he is looking for alternate methods.

 This thing was abused and left to die and I see why. I listed it for $40, what you see is what you get, everything stuck. I can't believe the guys that want to know if it runs, and can I get the title? Is it a good parts bike for my 125?
  I see a set of T350 carbs for sale for $250 on e bay. I may list mine for $150 and toss the rest. Seriously annoyed by dumbasses and too much junk around here. A guy in California was going to pay me $100 W/bike to palletize it, now he wants me to drive it 50 miles one way to a trucking co. Agreed to another $50 but waited two weeks to pull the trigger after I started taking it apart to part out.

Sometimes it comes down to a matter of time versus money. Do you want to spend a few hours tearing stuff down like engine internals to turn around and sell for a few bucks? Sometimes it's just not worth it and it's easier to pull the easy stuff and make peace with leaving the rest for scrap.

If the pipes are as nice as they look in the photo, they’re worth a bunch! I just finished a T250, and couldn’t find any pipes without rust or dents. Those they wanted $300 to $400.

 I asked $150 for the bike, to crate it and haul it 50 miles to a truck dock. Apparently that's not good enough so I broke it down smaller and will post the parts on the Suzuki T250/350 facebook page.
