That was my first real motorcycle. My parents bought it from my sisters boyfriend for my 12th b day. I have zero nostalgia for anything in my youth except that DT125. It just ran without anything approaching reasonable maintenance. I wonder what it did in a former life that it was subjected to my ownership in this one. Must have been a real monster! I love that bike!My first street legal mode of transportation was a '76? DT125 twin shock in red/white when I was 16. Sadly, I can't find any pictures of it. I sold it to one of my high school teachers when I joined the army. If memory serves correct the seat was hinged to open to the side.
Edit; not mine but here's a picture of what it looked like. Nice bike AlvinYork btw! The '79 is a good looking bike.
