DT175 Restoration Project – Completing the jigsaw

So the frame is away with Redditch Shot Blasting, The Wheels are with Central Wheel, Tank & Panels with Flakey Dave and the Engine with Oz at Zedparts, decided to sort out all of the bits ready for putting it all back together.

So this is what I will be starting with when I get the other bits back…..

So got all the bits back and below are the photos of the rebuild so far….

Redditch Shot Blasting did a great job and the frame has come up really good.


Re-Built the rear mudguard, with new brackets and light fittings.


Started putting all of the running gear along with the wheels and new tyres.

Central Wheel Components did a brilliant job and were a great company to deal with.




Just waiting for the engine to come back after its re-build and I should be ready to go to get her all finished fairly soon.

Had a little sunshine so wheeled the bike out and got some snaps….



Got the engine back from Oz and Zedparts all looks good…..

Sent the bike off to Oz to get it all checked and registered…..then we will see what happens…

Well it all went bang….seems as though the previous owner had used some form of super-glue to fix a clutch issue! The pictures tell the story…

Managed to get a new clutch basket off eBay and Oz rebuilt all of the clutch. Bike is now running like a dream….just need to get it on the road for 2015….

Didn’t actually make it for 2016…Bike is all done, just going through the painful process to get it registered with the DVLA.
