Well guys, I've made a deal on a pair of IT175's..kind of excited about them...They look like pretty good trail machines..
I saw these bike's a couple of yr's ago in a barn my old Yami dealer buddy has. Will pick them up in the next couple of days.
One of the bikes was raced in hare scrambles & the other looks like it was just a rider, only 700' ish miles on it. Will post pic's when I get my hands on em.

They're a great motor in those, great little bike really. Mate had one new & did a season or two of enduros & never let him down. That reminds me now--i had one bought as a burnt out wreck from the insurance company. Sure as hell didn't look like yours but got it running & racing & fair enjoyed it too.

Neat score....the one bike looks to have a YZ aluminum swing arm......I just scored that conversion off of EBay......I'd like to know if it has a YZ aluminum Monoshock on it......I'm going that route but, think I might need to create a shorter upper shock eye mounting position to pull off that trick.

I was told the swing arm was an update for model yr 1978. Also if you look a bit closer at the pic of the speedo you will see the shrader valve in the top of the fork leg. Not sure what I'm dealing with there yet as I don't have any experience with air over oil?
A little input from an expert would be useful here. These two beasts are a bit different than my enduro's, so will be learnin a few things.
I also will be needing some help testing the cdi units, complete ignition system. Maybe Deet can do this?

Valves might have added in to bleed the air off as they seem to draw air in over time & not very much time if ridden in anger over rough terrain. But--more likely used to add a bit to substitute soft springing. I remember in "75 on my MX250B experimentation was everywhere & i competed at one mx with no springs & 35psi of air. Felt good Stationary but was too harsh in reality so put the springs back in. Of course the next year "76 the YZ250C cme out with air forks only & the big canisters on top of the forks. Used it like that for a while but fitted springs in the end & std caps on top. Looked weird with those [speedo & rev counter on top] we called it lol. I'm sure you know what they look like but here's a random pic off the net if it works.
