Greetings all,Neal here. I'm 70 yrs old and still working and fooling around with old and new motorcycles (mostly old).Just last night I brought home this beauty. I thought I was pretty lucky till I found today just   how scarce vital parts are. I am not an experienced forum user so don't hesitate to correct me if I type something wrong.

Welcome!  Nice find.

For a bike that's nearly 50 years old, I'd say the parts supply is pretty amazing.

Welcome from NZ. Nice find by the looks. I used to ride one to work a lifetime ago [i'm 75]. Probably better on the road than the trail as pretty low clearance underneath. Ya lucky to find one in that condition. I worked for the local Yam dealer through those fun times. Bring back the "70's!!.

The parts are out there! Flex your fingers and start combing the internet. Yamaha's Parts Catalog is a start, then copy & paste part numbers into eBay search engines or just in a Google search and start poring over the info. In the past couple of years seems Y-E members have been acquiring ALOT of DT360's so there's a ton of searchable info on here as well. 
Allrighty Then

Got yourself a great looking bike there.
You've come up trumps finding this forum, the knowledgeable and generous members are sure to be able to help.
Have a look in the Tech Library for your manual and change your brake shoes, they can delaminate with age.
Good luck.

Hello Neil, 
 It looks like none of the hard-to-find parts are missing, chrome is nice seat and tank look good.... a great find there.
 That little triangle shaped plastic cover underneath the air filter ... I’d given up on finding one of those until Al on here pointed out lo and behold one had shown up on eBay. Part of the fun can be the search but as said you’ve got a good starting point. 
 Lots of info on this site using the search feature and please read up on the dreaded kickback when trying to start it and as mentioned replace old brake shoes.
