Found a new bike #1
Yes i am still coming here,just had nothing to report or anything of value to add to any posts.
So today i have bought a DT3 250 in metalic green. It's not here yet and won't be for a few weeks due to where the bike is and me having to go to work away from home.
It's a US spec bike and is registered on an age related UK plate. It's on the road and runs but has been parked up all summer.
It has a running problem.I haven't investigated anything as the bike isn't here,but sounds like a crank seal is leaking by what the previouse owner tells me.
The 175 is still accruing parts and the frame is ready for blasting.
Keep finding those hard to find bits but some still remain in the US and cost a bomb to get here unless they come from Texas for some strange reason.
So couldn't find a DT1 that was worth a punt so settled on this one as the price was £1850 for a complete original running ridable bike !
Here's the very bike

Thats not me by the way.

Great find it looks very clean. I don't recognize that rack. I wonder if it was custom made?

Quick question. Are the DT1 ,2,3 A B&C con rods virtually all the same ?

Unfortunately I'm pretty sure on the 250's the con rod length was changed about 5mm when the reed valve was introduced on the DT2, so no.
