I’ve featured several examples of the bigger brother to this bike (the MT500), but this is the first Harley-Davidson MT350 that I’ve seen in a very, very long time. To be frank, I don’t know if the 350 is inherently better or worse than the 500, but it’s definitely unique enough to be shared.
I’ve got a serious weakness for the MT500 because it’s something you’d never expect from HD. The 350 utilized a Rotax 348cc air-cooled single that produced 30 horsepower, and it actually had some advancements over its bigger brother. This is due to the fact that Harley got rights to the MT500 in ’87, and then they developed the 350 for release in ’93. Upgrades included an electric starter, “improved” carb, disc front brake (as opposed to the drum you’ll find on the MT500), and the move of panniers to the front.
This specific Harley-Davidson MT350 (VIN: 1HD6RLT17TY000488) has 7,000 miles and is claimed to run great. It spent some time in the British Army, after which it was released as surplus and then imported to the United States. It will need a service, but then you get to enjoy the SA80 gun scabbard, removable panniers, and a combat ‘blackout’ switch that disables all lighting at once.
