Introducing..... 1976 DT250 #1
Hey all, since getting rid of my DT175 (and acquiring 2 others in need of love), I purchased a "bargain" DT250......:unsure:
I think she's spent some time as a submarine..... going to be an interesting revival!

Check out my pictures and "progress":

Wish me luck! I'll need your help again!

Welcome back! I know what you’re up against and I think you do too. Hope you have a sandblaster. Or 3 elbows. Take plenty of pictures because it will be quite a transformation when done. I don’t have a dt250b or c and have never ridden one, but it seems to me like it would be the most refined of the twin shockers. I’ve always like the look of them.

You need to focus your rebuild around that chain guard!
Get that bad boy chromed and then slowly work your way outward.
Joking aside, my DT250B is one of my favorites.
You will like that bike if you can get it all sorted out.
There's a guy on this forum who can make that oil pump look like new again......

As was said, take lots of pic's of the transformation. Looks like a big project that will take some time and patience.
Those swing arms can be a bugger. Start the soaking process now....:Subscribe :beerchug

It's exciting to have the hopes of another old enduro being pulled back from the brink of the crusher. That color combo is one of my favs too. I'll be following your progress!
