New to me 1976 DT400
Well I finally got back into dual sport riding.
I got rid of my 83 XL600 after she left me stranded after too much time and substantial $$ put into her.
So 3 years go by and I have a good week @ work with major OT
Look in my local CL and found a 1976 Yamaha DT400 with 9600 miles for $400.
Perfect, a buck a CC, just the way I like them.
Went right over.Last tagged in 2008 but 2nd owner who bought it in 1980. Started up and ran after a few kicks.
Put some dough down and picked up last night.
A true barn find and a diamond in the rough but she has a tom of potential. Does not look to ever had a major accident.
No bent bars or forks.
A little cosmetic and fluid change and I will see how she goes.
Tomorrow plan on getting new transmission and injection oil, spark plug, air filter and fork oil.
Already got some paint to touch her up
I still have chain lube hanging around.
My first "legal" bike was a 1978 DT250. This was back in 1983
Been a while but glad to get back on a Yamaha 2 stroke.
