1975 Yamaha DT400 project

  • by

From the seller: “Bought this a few years ago from from DK motorcycles in Stoke, has NOVA so no probs registering. It’s California import so rust free.

Look at the pictures, I’ve tried to capture everything. What’s there is there.
Good original exhaust
Wheels have new bearings and seals, rims are good and original.
Even the tires look original but will obviously need replacing as they are probably 46 years old..
Sprockets and chain are fine.
Brakes are done but the front brake lever is broken.
Tank is rust free but full of a gallon or two of evaporated petrol residue that has probably kept it rust free.
The chrome is fine.
New fork seals and drain screws.
New piston and replacement barrel machined to 1st oversize. Original barrel and piston is there and show very little wear, DK sent an airbox with it that’s not in the picture and never even been unpacked.
Comes with a new manual.
New throttle and decompression cable.
Engine turns nicely and it goes through all the gears smoothly. ”
