Hey Rod, I called a bearing shop in Spokane and they have a seal that measures close to size I need. Don't have my notes handy, but it is a discontinued seal from Yamaha. NW Vintage Cycle parts has one for $46. The one in Spokane is $5.50. Same OD and ID, but 2mm thinner... I'm gonna give the cheapie a shot.
Being in Calif., there should be lots of bearing supply businesses around, just call them with the seal (or bearing) number ie. SW-42-72-10 for a seal or 6204 for a bearing (not the right numbers, but they are on your seals and bearings).

'68 Yamaha DT1, '78 TT500 and no money
