175 Ignition points
« on: May 02, 2022, 09:46:39 AM »
Hi,
I am new to this forum. I purchased a 175DT in 1968 when I was in college.  I still have it and I want to get it running again.  Does anyone know where I could get a set of ignition points and condensers?  If I get the bike running, then I may be looking forr parts to restore it cosmetically.  Thanks in advance

should be able to find them on Ebay. There is a nice article on the boards about an electronic ignition upgrade.
Resurrecting a 300$ 1969 Bridgestone 200 costs lots of money apparently.

Items regarding the 350 points and condenser also apply to 175/200 models after S/N 16L-20758, which yours probably is.

Thank you for your replies.  Unfortunately, I have a 16J which uses two identical points.  The ones that I saw on ebay for the 350 were symmetrical (right and left). Is it possible for another Japanese to have used the same points?
