Here is our recent find.

Can't even remember seeing one back in the day . It's a smoker and that's what counts :up:

awesome find mate, this model is few and far between in any condition.

A lot of years back I purchased a near mint tank and side covers in the same white, they still sit in my office waiting to be used:-)

Hey I got a new toy last week too, a 1970 T250, you could call this a barn find too except we call em sheds here:)

Thats a GREAT find, the 69 T350 is one of the bikes I'd consider getting, (as if I need more) especially in the white just like that. The inspiration for owning that particular bike came from this record sleeve I had back then and I still have it, showing the model new in summer of 1968.
I see the top of the left engine cover is broken which means the chain got thrown and has done some damage, a common problem on these bike by POs who neglect them.

Sure looks like the last owner ran it thru the fields as there was pine cones and straw inside the sprocket cover.
Already have a replacement cover . Carb flanges are warped...must have really tightened them down .
Motor runs and sounds great though..Previous owner also cut all the wiring. Had to solder them all together again..A hard life I would think.

What a great find......I'd love to have that. Full of character, and enough power to be fun to ride.
Go on.....tell us......i bet you stole it didn't you?

We paid $400 for the ol gal..I think these were just as fast as any twin of the day .
Will need fenders but they seem to be hard to find in decent shape.
Guess we'll just use the originals until another set comes along.

Well done, great find, and for the price of a bicycle ! Sadly I don't think there are any left like that in the UK.
