DT1B or not
swm wrote: I certainly may be wrong but didn't the early production 69 dt1 have the 68 style pipe w/short stinger? Thought I read that on old site few years ago. I have DT1-155XX that has same exhaust as this DT1-B but can't confirm it wasn't changed over the years. Curious what first 2 numbers are in VIN? Enjoying this conversation.
Vin is DT1 18xxx

Hard to keep up with all the early production changes.
Thanks for catching that detail SWM you probably saved him some money and will keep the bike correct. I said it was a 1968 pipe because that is a true statement. If I said it’s a 1969 pipe that would have been guessing without knowing the vin. Now that the vin number has been given, it confirmed what you said. The pipe fits in that vin range that Enduronut gave out, and is likely the original pipe to the bike. I’m looking forward to the book Enduronut will be writing on the 68 DT1, if he lives to see it thru.

but 19 " was the standard fitment .
The 21 inch front tire swallows up the fender though
