Saving a 1987 TT350

Recommended Posts

I picked up a 1987 TT350 on a trade deal and I'm wondering if I should rebuild it or part it.  Although it needs a long list of repairs, it does run and is ride-able.  I'm estimating it will take about $300.00 or so to get it back to a reliable machine.  What are these things worth?  Is this a worth while model or just a problem child?

Riding buddy of mine owned one back in the day, and I rode with the guy a lot.

Solid bike with no strange quirks that I know of.

If you need a good dirt bike and it would take a mere $300 to make it good, it's a no-brainer.

 

As for what it's worth, no more than any other dirt bike from the mid-1980s.

In my opinion, I would not pay more than $500 for one in average (semi-beat-up) condition, and not more than $1,000 for one in excellent condition.

Those are awesome trail bikes, good torque and pulls strong when they are dialed in, I've always wanted one.

I put it up on CL so we'll see if there is any interest.  If not, I'm really digging the look of the one in the last picture.  Maybe a rebuild/restoration will be in order.TT2-Copy.jpg
