DT175 Restoration Project – The Stripdown

So here is the start of the rebuild!….the stripdown…..

Some very elegant wiring mod’s have been made and lots of rust.

Have a look at the underneath of the swingarm! Might need a favor from the local welder.


So here it is, fully stripped, now to check the frame and fix all of the broken bolts & studs, remove the bearing races and its ready for powder coating. Just wonder what colour to do it?


Box on the left is the stuff that will get chromed.

Box of bits on the right to be cleaned or painted. Probably hammerite silver for some of them.

Also a box of electrics, might look to see if I can get a new main loom. Most of the other bits look OK.
