WTB Luggage Rack for 1976 DT175 was created by WNCBob

I’m looking for a luggage rack for a 1976 Yamaha DT175. Does anyone have one they’re willing to sell?

I’ve got one for a 1975 DT175. Doesn’t fit the 1976.

Are you looking to sell the one for a 1975?

I may be willing to sell it. I’m out of state right now. When I get home I’ll take a photo of it. It’s in pretty good condition.

Caution:  pretty sure 75 and 76 DT175 do not take the same rack.  76 has the "forward mounted" shocks...  a suspension upgrade. 

You can tell a 74-75 from a 76 easily by the bent frame brace tubes that go from the swingarm pivot to the upper shock mount...  On a 74 and 75 those brace tubes are straight and the upper shock mount is farther back.  To use an earlier rack on a 76 you need to extend the tubes on the rack to reach the 76 shock mounts.  Hope that makes sense.

I wasn't very clear... Original post for 76 rack was old... Posts today were about buying 75 rack that doesn't fit 76...

Thank you. I just figured out yesterday that my bike is also a '76 thanks to MarkT's info. Thank you MarkT. When I bought the bike it was advertised as a '75 and has a make date of 6/75 on it, but it is a 1976. I found the original owners manual that came with it in a box, and it says DT175C right on it which would indicate '76, and the fame is exactly as MarkT descibed a '76 to be. Looks like I'm in the same boat as you........looking for a '76 DT175 luggage rack. Thank you for the info and the pics. Didn't mean to waste your time.
