"I purchased a Jaguar XJ 40 with a/c that did not work he said he would fix it at his cost and he certainly followed through on his promise. I would most certainly recommend Jesmond to anybody considering buying a high-quality classic car. Honesty, Integrity, and knowledge. Peter From Orewa."Peter Daye, Auckland, New Zealand
Viewed alongside other machines from the period, the Suzuki is highly advanced, using design techniques developed in the ground breaking 250 and 500 twins.
Power comes on strong and healthily from a shade over 3500 and for the next 1500 revs this is the best place to be for pottering around and minding your own business.The bike has little to say for itself within this range and is happy to keep up this pretense all day long, let the revs rise however and a second wind is achieved, the engine takes off again on its way to the red line around 8000 rpm.
Unlike its gearbox happy 250cc stable mate the 350 will stay in one gear right down into the lower reaches of the tacho and then back up again, gear shifts are few unless you really want to race something else.
ABOUT THIS BIKE
- Chassis #: T35036224
- Engine #: 36224
- 5 owners with 3 long term owners from new
- In very nice original condition.
- Runs beautifully
Aesthetically the T series is very pleasing to the eye, on its side stand the 350 is pert and willing with a tail down and head up attitude. The overall design is simple and not in any way ostentatious, not bristling with chrome like many from the period but rather functional and business like with every thing in the right amount. This doesn't diminish once on the move and the twin is eager to go. For a little machine the 350 Suzuki is a real mover, feeling like a 250 but going and pulling far stronger.
The carburetion is complex, using instruments of a size previously unseen with this capacity of engine the potential for an over rich mixture, and with it bogging down low in the rev range, in use however the 32mm Mikunis are smooth and well controlled, creating a low down grunt not normally associated with piston-port, two-stroke engines.
Will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold in New Zealand.

At Waimak Classic Cars, our principal interest is to ensure the preservation of classic and vintage vehicles. Please remember that our vehicles are many years old, often with further previous owners. Many have been bought by us recently. We cannot know exactly what repairs or maintenance has been done although we do our best to obtain log books and copies of invoices of work done, when, and by whom.
Our descriptions are based on our own observations and knowledge and we look for the best examples we can find. Indicated mileages are based on the records showing with NZTA and / or the vehicle’s odometer reading. Because of the age of the vehicle, this can never be guaranteed. Our inspections are generally non-invasive. Our description is based on a visual inspection and on information supplied to us by third parties.
Any sale is on the condition that the purchaser relies on his/her own judgment and does not rely on our skill or judgment or on any representation made by us. This applies even if the Buyer has not inspected the vehicle before purchase. We strongly recommend that you have the vehicle inspected by an independent assessor qualified to comment on the particular vehicle’s condition. If you are unable to organise this, then this can be organised on your behalf, at your cost.
We are proud of our reputation. However, no older vehicle can be expected to be as reliable as a new one and so all our vehicles are sold on an as is where is basis. Mechanical breakdowns, electronic failures at inconvenient times and maintenance costs are part and parcel of the ownership of classic and vintage vehicles. Reliability is a combination of the particular vehicle, how it has been driven and maintained, and luck.

Viewing is therefore STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY and A FEW DAYS NOTICE is always appreciated, as it is seldom possible for us to accommodate viewing on the same day of inquiry
