Hello! Just joined, also new to forums in general so please be gentle haha

I have two vintage enduros, a 1971 Yamaha AT1 in Competition yellow and a 1976 Yamaha DT100 in a colour I'm still trying to figure out.

Looking to rebuild the DT100 to an original spec, unfortunately trying to find any info on it is like hens teeth.

Hoping this forum can help me track down the original colourways that came out for a DT100 in 76 and just parts in general!

Thanks :)

Welcome! Check the vin charts under the tech library to verify what you have. Do you have any pictures of the bikes?

The 1971 AT1C was brilliant red & the 1970 AT1B was competition yellow.

The 1976 DT100C was chappy green.

Hi, I'm new to your group. My first road registered bike was a Yamaha DT125 I bought second hand in 1978. I loved that bike! I've had numerous bikes since then. My days of riding big bikes are over and I recently got rid of my Bonneville and bought a Honda Monkey 125, funtimes! I've joined your group because I want to find another DT125 and restore it to original for nostalgic reasons. I like the technical stuff you have and I might the help of your brains trust. Thanks for having me.

Welcome. You came to the right place. Plenty of help rebuilding available and if you post where you are roughly, there could be help finding a good specimen to start with. I redid a basket case Dt125a as my first motorcycle and also first restoration project with the help available here.

Just a quick update regarding my '74 DT 250, literal barn find, ran over/squashed project.
I did replace the twisted frame with a '74 DT360 one (exactly the same), straightened the from fork tubes and swapped out the sliders. Opened up and inspected the motor, which just verified the mileage even more. Cleaned the >original< points and set the timing to 3.2mm BTDC. Cleaned the old, 1974-75 fuel varnish from the carb and put in a new main jet o-ring. Bolted it all together and did a trillion other little things. Anyway, after double checking everything, I stuck a battery in it, hooked up a temporary fuel supply, but some Amsoil 2-stroke oil in the tank and,bled the injection pump, gave her a couple slow priming kicks. Turned the ignition on, and after >1< solid starting kick, she lit up and ran just like it was 1974 again! Idled done nice and everything! Couldn't help but to tuck the fuel jug under my arm and take a scoot around the yard. Not boasting here, just sharing my joy. Still a ways to go before it's trail/road worthy, bit it'll get there!

Hi all, Tony from Australia here.
I love all things bikes with a soft spot for the Yamaha's of my youth.
I'm currently restoring a DT400B which has had two previous owners. It looks a bit rough, however runs well and should be back on the trails soon.


My other bikes-
IT400E



Love getting it dirty


IT250H - restoring
