Before the name Rebel became synonymous with a small Honda cruiser, it was bestowed upon the middleweight of Suzuki’s two-stroke T series. The T350 was an evolution of the excellent 250 Hustler – it had the same frame and brakes – though in this case the displacement was actually just 315cc. The parallel twin engine put out 39 horsepower and the bike weighed 328 pounds dry.
This example (VIN: T35015304) was restored 2 years ago, and it looks great but I believe the fuel tank is missing a stripe. Still, it’s claimed to run and ride great with no oil leaks. The odometer displays 13,000 miles and it comes with 1 OEM key (plus a copy), the original owner’s manual, and shop manuals from Suzuki and Haynes. Highlights of the restoration include POR-15 coating inside the tank, new Wiseco forged pistons (3rd over), new rims, new inner fork tubes, replating of all chrome parts except the exhaust, and powdercoating of all frame parts. The seller says there is one known issue – a ‘single pop as you kick start the bike’ that occurs sometimes.
