Stuck / seized front axle #11
Yes, could definitely be a 1980... In the USA starting in 1979 they had a leading axle fork.

Model code info suggested by Gr8uncleal is a good way to identify... there are also VIN charts and manuals in the Tech Library here that you might find helpful

That does not mean other countries could have had the standard forks still. It does look somewhat more like 1977-78 US model than a 1979 on model.

On photos, if you have the picture on your computer you use the "Attachments" button and then either browse or drag and drop the photo. Very easy. Nice if you also choose the "insert" option to put the photo in your post where the cursor is placed at the time the insert option is used.

1963 YG1-T, 1965 MG1-T, Allstate 250, 1970 CT1b, 1971 R5, 1973 AT3MX, 1974 TS400L, 1975 RD350, 1976 DT175C, 1976 Husqvarna 250CR, 1981 DT175G, 1988 DT50, 1990 "Super" DT50, 1991 RT180, 2017 XT250

I've just had a check on my Australasian brochure collection .
Your bike is an 80 DT 250 G , and both the 79 and 80 had leading axle forks .
Probably your easiest way forward might be to get an earlier brake plate
to match the forks . I imagine , but don't know for sure , that the wheel
itself is the same .
