Default 1979 Yamaha DT 100F restoration.

I have recently aquired a 1979 DT 100. Overall the bike is in good shape. Will need top end work since the the cylinder and piston/rings are toast. Some minor carb work and shock work. Most likely some electrical work will also be needed. Other than that its just cosmetics. I plan on tearing this bike all the way down. I will post pics of the bike as soon as I can, most likely tonight.


If anyone has parts for this bike let me know .

Does anyone know how these auto oilers work? And how to test them? Im asking do to the discription of how this bike quit working. I was told that it just died while running. After I tore it down, I found the Cylinder and piston/rings were fried. No compression. So do these auto mix fuel/oil? or is this for just the crank and not the piston? I am new to this style bike and am learning along the way.

But not a bad bike for 150 bucks. We will see what its worth when its done.

Wow! That one takes you back. looks like a real nice starting point.
New DT parts are getting hard to find in the U.S., but I believe CMS
still stocks some. I'm guessing, Craigs list, Ebay and swap meets are
going to be the best bang for your buck.

Good luck, should be a fun project.

Yeah I have found a few parts online. I am debating if I should try to hone this cylinder out or Bore and sleeve it. Or try to track down another cylinder. I also need a piston and rings which I have found a few new online. I have also found the carb and front light. Just hope they are there when I go to buy them next week.

Im looking at this bike to buy here soon. Any ups or downs on this bike?. I am looking for a KDX or RMX type bike. Do you think this bike fits that?

Here is the known info on the bike...

1999 KTM 250 EXC, custom graphics, big bore, Vfores reeds, pro taper bars, tuned suspension. Pro-Circuit pipe, spark arrested. Asking $1900 OBO.


Is $1900 a good price? from the picture it looks like the pipe is dented, but cant see much other problems.
