Oil tanks
« on: December 11, 2022, 10:33:31 AM »
I have a DT 175, I thought it was a 1967,but my oil tanks (2)are under the fuel tank. My ID tag #  is 16V01656. I saw one going on Hemmings auction it supposed to be a 67 but oil tank is on the right side. Any info? Please, Mike

Your bike was manufactured in October of 1965.

Go to the "Serial Number ID Guide" and then go to page 2. Scroll down until you see your bike's model number. (in your case the number 16) Now look for the 16V that has a production number closest to yours. Have fun.
