I noticed things right away that were incorrect or lacking. But I sweat the details.

On one of those models you kinda have to "sweat the details" if you have any aspirations of getting it back close to original...

One or two missing "details" can end up costing more than the original purchase price!

Looks like the wheel spokes have been spray painted along with the hubs in-situ.
Doesn't fill me with confidence towards the quality of the restoration.
They are lovely though.

I'm not very observant & didn't notice the high comp head with center plug as mentioned by SWM. When i tried that on my old rattler it accentuated the piston rattle which on mine was audible but it doubled it. So might be partly why his is quite rattly now i play the video. Assuming it's a std cylinder & not a chrome bore GYT or a rebore--able DT1MX with the black paint removed. Na sounds original standard type. But is the bike a conglomeration of parts when you see something as obvious as 'that head [now i look lol].

Just noticed a comments section if you've not read it. I'll read later.

Sorry that just leads back to the main page but hit comments at the top. Or are you guys all pointing things out to the seller on there anyway. Read the first one & i'm sure he said no piston slap--must be my computer slapping lol.

100 very clear pics. Wow he's not hiding anything. Not sure on some of the comments on the BAT page. Someone mentioned the tail pipe not original but didn't some & early ones come like that--i thought but not sure. Also carb fiber block looks original to me but someon says should be 'red'--never seen one. Despite picking holes in things its pretty damn good. Totaly ruing the day i scrapped my frame as kept breaking it & the swinging arm near the front--but now i want it back--Mr scrap metal man 25 years ago lol. I'll find a pic of mine but wish i had the frame number/engine number to compare. If i find a pic you can see the swing arm mod we did to two--mine & my bosses. Back an inch & up an inch [mx action mag instructions--or another US mag]. & fork damper mod welding over holes & redrilling.

I keep mucking up loading pics in a post already posted. So start again just for kicks. & now i think of it the ownership papers i'll show are my bosses gold tank one. Mine was Pearl White. Ignore the mis-print on chassis number. Should be DT not CT. I guess i shouldn't be imposing on this post with pics & stick to the BAT story. No doubt there's a Show us ya DT1 post back somewhere for piston port motors only, none of that fancy reed stuff lol, who needs 'that' & more things to go wrong. Back to the future i say.
