I had a DT 175 that was a real runner as well
Does any one here own one. I have the chance to pick up a fairly nice DT400 and was wanting some opinions on reliability, maintenance and some pros and cons.

I had a '78 DT 400, Just sold it last summer, I loved that bike, a great little rider, the 400cc 2 stroke delivers really nice power, great for buzzing around town or hitting the trails. Not really a great bike for all out motocross, nor a very good bike for serious freeway travel, a bit light and underpowered for the interstate, but great in town. Honestly wish I still had mine.
Here is a video of my '78 DT 400
YouTube - ride on the '78 DT 400.mpg
Nice little bike! What would you say the top speed was?
wow she is sweet . had a 73 dt250 nice ride and not to bad on speed . what they asking on the 400 ?
The bike in the pic is sweet. Wish it was available in my neighborhood.
the only big bike i had that was real slow for its size was my honda cb 550 k . it was a slug 55mph maxed out red line 5th gear . my yahama 100 could out run the thing . never could figure out why it was so slow
I just recently finished rebuilding it's baby cousin
