175 DT
« on: July 03, 2009, 08:34:14 PM »
I am looking for some help. This past winter I picked up a 175DT. It has a VIN number of 16J16214. My best guess thru number tracing is that it's a 1966. Can anyone verify that? Thanks,

Chris B.

I can't find it now. But somewhere on the web was a break down when the various ser. no.s were made. Mine starts with 16L and I remember the info I had, made it a Dec. 1966 built bike.

Chris, where did you find the info on dates of production. I know it is out there, but I can't find it.

Hi Dave,
Sorry I have taken so long to get back to you. I found some information on serial numbers on "Scott's Bridgestone Motoncycles" Go to "links" and you'll see "Bridgestone Serial numbers". I think it's acurate, but I've learned on the internet - "Be-Ware" and also go to the experts to confirm information.

Best regards,
Chris

Just go to the LINKS section on this site, under Personal Site, it's already there for you. Luke

Found it and got it. I was looking again for my 175 DT that I got in Nov. to see that my titled as a '70 was made in Dec. '66. My brother just picked up a 175 Dt from Penn. (you may remember the very recent add for a free to good home 175). So we were comparing ser. no.s and bikes. His was made Jan. '67 and titled '72. Production wise in mos. they are very close. I also wanted to check the numbers on the 175 HS I bought new as '69 on Aug. 2 of '69. It was built in April '67. My Dec. built 175 had a 4 bolt rear sprocket as my brothers built the next month as a 6 bolt rear sprocket. Just picking over them and seeing the differences. Thanks for the responses.
