The outlet pipe is smaller in diameter .
The rest looks pretty right for a DT 1 B .

All,

If I remember correctly, the 68 DT-1 is the only year that had square-tube swing-arms, as this bike does...

The square swingarm was used from 68-70

Is the stator cover correct ??? How difficult is it to find the sprocket cover??

Also is the chain case correct??? Is it supposed to be black ?

Sprocket covers are easy to find but you will probably be just north of $100 for one. I would be more concerned about the mounting boss on the case half. I have had to weld an aluminum dowel drilled and tapped on both my DT3 and RT1. I think when the chain goes it takes that mounting boss and the cover with it.
Cheers

It should be silver like the fenders. I also noticed the skid plate is not stock, looks like a custom made one or perhaps an aftermarket brand like webco, would need to see a better picture.
