Reader Ride. Very Nice DT175 Restoration.

┬áMike Stratton Sends in this beauty of a restoration. I especially appreciate the “before and after” style of the pics. Very nice resto. When I was a younger (and lighter) lad I seriously lusted after one of these.

Hey I stumbled across your site and really liked it! Thanks for your work on it! Here is my 1978 DT175E That I restored. Hopefully you will like it enough to put the pics on your site! (Bragging rights for me to my friends!) Anyway Thanks again.

My pleasure Mike. Brag away!

Reader Ride.

Jon sends in his former Triton.

He writes:

Built this a few years back – now sold and the new owner put it back to a ‘standard’ Triton, you know, Gold Star pipes and plain old 2 seater with a hump and he scrapped the fairing – oh well…

I’d have to see it now but it seems to me that this would be hard to improve on. If you know the new owner ask him to send in a current picture just for fun. Cheers!
