  • Yamaha DT-80 Resto

    Hey all,

    After reading thru some of the Resto Threads, ive finally decided to get off my ass, and strip and rebuild my lil old school bike in my garage. She is a 1974 Yahama DT-80, Still kickovers, and hustles along nicely.

    When i first got her.


    As she currently sits after 30 mins


    If anyone wants to come round, sink piss, and help out,(or tell me what im doing wrong), feel free to drop a line.

    Cheers

    Lynx

          The first one I posted is real close to yours, rear sets etc would be easy. Yould be a cool cheap project.

          The frame is spot on the wheels look spot on you just need a tank and bum and fairing.

                      i dont deny it looks fun, but it also wins the plain ugly award. Looking at the pedal arrangment, they look like the line up with the rear pillion pegs, for the rear brake would be an easy mod, but wonder how the set it up for the gearbox?

                            Fun looking project - just out of curiosity, how much power does that thing put down?
                            I reckon you could do something really cool with, be it some kind of racer or whatever.

                            Looking forward to seeing what direction you take this.

                              Funnily enough, my neighbour just got given one of these! His seems almost identical, bar it says KD on the side, which would lead me to believe it's a KD80?

                              I was looking to buy it from him to do exactly this! looking forward to seeing updates
