DT175DOUG May possibly Own a  Yamaha Enduro?


Default Hello from a fellow vintage enduro lover

I just found this site, and am also a new member on the Vintage Yamaha Enduro Fans website.
My name is Doug, and I live in the Asheville, NC. area now. Previously lived in the Raleigh area, San Jose Calf before that, and I grew up in Northern Indiana in a small town called LaPorte before that.
I fell in love with the vintage 2-stroke enduros at a young age. My first bike, other than an early Honda Trail70, was a 1975 Kawasaki F7 175. I loved that bike and would love to own another one if you know of any.
I currently have a 1976 Yamaha DT175 which I purchased locally from the original owner a few weeks ago. The bike is in great condition, runs great too, but I am hoping to get it looking even better.
I hope to buy another vintage 2-stroke enduro soon to just use for trail riding.
I am actively looking, so if you have or know of a nice 175cc or 250cc (pre-1980) bike let me know.
I guess thats it for now. Thanks in advance for all of your help.
-Doug-

I was able to purchase what I thought was a dt250 but what actually was a 1974 DT360A. Its in pretty rough shape but it should be a fun journey. I currently own a suzuki 1982 gs650, a 1972 suzuki ts90, and a 1980 kz1300b,. and various parts of others.

Has anyone used the vermont process to get a title recently? the bike is 90 percent complete minus bits and pieces and a title and I would really like to make this bike street legal.

Jimmy dt1 250 May possibly Own a  Yamaha Enduro?


Default Introduction

Hi all! My name is Jimmy, I live in Durango CO. 65 going on 66 this year.
The first time I encountered an enduro was in high school, two rich kids both had the new Yamaha enduros. One a 250 the other a 360, I think I was 15 at the time. Loved the sound those bikes made. My retirement is getting close so I have been gathering some nice bikes to restore, and some to turn into cafe bikes.
One is a complete 68 DT 1 250, I will be keeping this one for myself. Am currently working on a 71 RT 1 360 enduro. Just bought yesterday a 69 Yamaha
AT 1 M 125 will post pics when I figure out how, remember Iím old. I found a list of serial numbers but this one I couldnít find,HELP # AT1 320105. The other bike I acquired was a Steyr - Daimler - Puch Sport 60 made in Austria for Sears and Roebuck. Well Iíve Rambaled on too much, more later and thos pics. Thank you for excepting me into the fold. Jimmy!

Taps May possibly Own a  Yamaha Enduro?

After riding modern bikes for the past few years, I'm building a '74 mx360 to do some ahrma racing. Other bikes include an '08 250xc and my plated '94 wxc360. Wasn't thinking about vintage bikes until I stumbled into a dt2 and '73 mx360 that I redid earlier this year. Sold those, but a weekend at Diamond Don's made me want to fix up this '74 and go racing.

Tonight I picked up my first enduro. It is a 1974 DT 250. The bike is pretty complete, and ran when parked last year like all of them!! I will be doing a total tear down and rebuild. Iím sure I will be on here plenty!!

Default New (but old) in Arizona

Hi everyone. As a high school kid I bought my first new bike in 1972. It was an Enduro 175. Really wanted a 360 but the 175 was plenty fast for a teenager and I managed to have a few painful sudden stops. Just found a 360 which should be here in a few days and I'm looking forward to digging into whatever it may need.

Default new guy in Florida

Hello all,

My name is Matt, I'm active duty Air Force stationed at Tyndall AFB in the Florida panhandle. I just picked up a non-running but whole 1970 RT1 360 for $150. I was told by the seller it was on an episode of the Discovery Channel tv show "Moonshiners", but I don't watch the show and my google searches haven't found anything, so if its true and you've seen the show, please let me know which episode it might be in!

My intent is to tear it down, clean it up, and restore it to its former glory with oem parts (whichever parts aren't ridiculously priced) but keep it in a very ride-able form.

I've restored a pair of 1970's Hondas and own a 1975 XS650, but this is the first time I'll be diving into the world of two-strokes! Any advice, recommendations, or gui is welcome and appreciated!

Thanks!!

Mike here, Thanks for having this forum!
I joined the group in search for possible electrical help with my 1974 DT250A. This is my second Yamaha Enduro. My first was a 1974 Green 360. It's been a 40 year stretch since I've ridden that old Enduro, so I am excited to get this next one legal to ride.

Default 1974 dt 250 needing tlc southern mn

Just picked up a '74 dt 250 with a messy fuel system. Tank is now clean and most rust is cleaned up, my question is where to get a carb kit. Everyone lists a 1975 but not 1974.

Will it work? are they the same jet wise?

Thanks for the forum and any help/word of wisdom.

Warren
