Hello, I am from a small village in Southern Ontario, and my 1975 DT 125 is not only my first vintage enduro, but my first motorcycle as well. The restoration took over a year, and it started as a pile of parts on a bench. It still needs some work, but I can't wait to ride it as often as possible, and really learn the ropes of trail riding on a vintage Yamaha!

The bike looks great! And will be a blast to ride.

Did you stay 125 or do a 175 top end swap? (Could do later easily if you want a nice HP increase!)

A delayed Welxome! To the forum!

Nope, stock 125cc top end. Is it just a matter of swapping the jug and cylinder?

Welcome to the forum. Same deal here. First bike/enduro/restoration. They are much fun once ya get them sorted. Easy to work on.
Spot the differences. It’s a 74 too.

By the way, nice job on that enduro. 75s were good looking bikes.

That is also a gorgeous looking enduro. I love how it is all blacked out. Looks like a lot on that bike isn't stock! Love the helmet, I bought myself a vintage style helmet as well to compliment the bike.

Most of the reason for blacking things out was for the looks of it, but my chrome was pitted pretty bad also. Was the most economical route also. Hence the resto mod. When I started it, prices on the early front fenders were reasonable on eBay. Old style helmets just go with these bikes. Perfect combination for errands around town.
