Just so you new members know.

Baoktiger - here on the site
Vinnie the Snake - on ADVrider.com

My addiciton began in 1973 with my RT3, Joined here needing to get my original 1975 running again and building a DT400B NOS bike, DT400C restoration, which lead to the DT400C Mountain Bike.

Decided to start collecting and have since realized I dont personally need more bikes, I need more time adventure riding on them. I normally ride my DT400C Mountain Bike on my adventure rides but do have a couple of others that see trail time.

The original 1974 DT360A


The Mountain Bike 1976 DT400C


Some of the bikes in the stable....





2 - 1975 DT400B - The NOS Bike, and the old original purchase of 1975
2 - 1976 DT400C - The Mountain Bike and the 90% NOS Restoration
1 - 1973 RT3 - Collector
2 - 1981 IT425G
1 - 1995 XT600E
1 - 2007 XR650L
1 - 2009 KTM 990

Can the mods add a section for "Introductions/Welcome Noobs"?

Hi all,

Lot of you know me already and have been helping me get my DT1E running. Its my first bike and like everything else I do, I couldn't just buy a new bike and ride it. It's more fun to rebuild something before you use it. I'm a glutton for punishment but thats how I roll I guess

Hi all,

I am 53 and have not ridden a dirt bike in 30 years, just trying to figure out if I can ride again. I was just looking for a DT175 to work on and ride and came across a DT400, so bought both of them. I am hoping they will take care of my summer time jones for off trail snowmobile riding! This is a great site and you guys have helped with my questions. I hope I can contribute as well. I have found a lot of answers by using the search function also. I will try to post pictures of my bikes soon

Well, I'm also new Here and thanks for the welcome . Found your site last night thru a google search. My story is I have a 75 dt 400 ( like yours ) that I bought in 76 in New York when I was in high school . After school threw it on the bumper of my Van and moved to Seattle, got married, kids and life got real busy. I parked it in the a corner of the garage and it has been sitting there for 30 years. And It's Time to get it back on the road. My first step is to get it cleaned up and see what I have. Any advice from others who have been thru this process will be much appreciated. Rick

Well I think most of you saw my introductory post, but I'll say hello in here anyway.

I hope I can be somewhat of an asset to the forum and not just an information leech. I'll try to document my complete engine overhaul for my HT1-B as I go.

Happy riding,

-TJ

Don't worry about how much information you get out of these guys. MOST everyone you talk to here are glad to help out. Yick is an outstanding member who has gone out of his way to help me twice now. Great bunch of guys with a great hobby.
