Newb here. Looks like a good site here and will take a while to sift through the threads. I'm from the US, but back in a mode where I will be traveling to Singapore a bit (work for a while has had me going the other direction).

 

I have a Yamaha DT3 (1973, 250cc enduro) and am in process of a restoration on a DT1C (1970, 250cc enduro). I'm headed over to Singapore in a few weeks for work and would like to spend some time hunting for parts (when you own fourty year old bikes, part hunting is part of the job). I've gotten a few leads for the likes of Jalan Besar and Sungie road, but most people I work with are not into vintage bikes.

 

Any information is appreciated. Plan on also checking out Hodaka World just for the fun of it.

 

Thanks

Singapore is a small place my friend. Please feel free to visit and check out the bike shops and part shops in the vicinity you mentioned but I can say for sure, if you are after parts for the early AT1, DT1-3 or DT1C...... or any early Yamaha, you will be disappointed.

 

What was common here in the late 70s was the DT125/175E. Even the DT250 of 1975 no longer exists and I have never seen the later DT125/175J or any of the Yamaha ITs survive either. I note in this thread that someone has a 1981 Yamaha DT125, never seen it around....... must be the only one left

 

Very few shops have parts for old bikes, we can still find parts for the S90, S110, CB100, YB100 and a few odds and ends for the YL1 or YG1. Even parts for the newer bikes like the RG250, RD250 are no longer available here.

 

Well, never say never. If you do not try, you will never know. Best of luck to you.

The reason you do not see the DT125 in S'pore is because she's at home in M'sia, nicely covered up and warm. I have had her for 20 years now...

I got my CDI, coils and a couple of other bits and pieces from Auto but most of my stuff for the rebuilt (like clocks, plastics, decals, lights) was obtained in the UK when i did mine.

Now trying to find a decent condition shock for her as well.

I see, it's a Malaysian registered bike?? This is the water cooled one right?

air cooled

 

Would very much like to see a picture of this rare bike if at all possible please. This appears to be the 125J or camel tank model, as we called it back then. The 175 was more popular here but all gone now sadly......

Anyone willing to let go of their vintage scramblers?

 

TS185 and the likes.

 

Thanks and please let me know.

 

my contact: 9686 5732.

 

I know of one TS185 left as it was advertised for sale some time ago, it was far too expensive for me though. Are you looking for 1970's scramblers or 1980's? I guess we can consider 1990's scramblers vintage as well as they will be almost 20 years old now.

 

There was a shop at Balestier Rd with many of them not too long ago. I passed by one day and could no longer find his shop. He had the DT175, Honda MTX200, XL185, XL200, XR200, Kawa KMX125.... and a few more. Wish I knew where he went.

Thanks for the info!

 

I'm looking for 70s scramblers.

 

 

I see, that will be hard. Can't remember when I last saw one aside from that TS185 that I went to see a couple of years back. A shop in Sembawang area had a 1978 Yamaha DT125 last year but it had already been scrapped!

 

I have not seen a 70's scrambler on the road in years and I fear they no longer exist. I will keep my eyes open for you though.

an old shot of the 125

 

Hey thanks so much for the trouble. Nice bike, it was the very same model that was scrapped from that bike shop in Sembawang that I mentioned. It was the DT125E I believe, the last one on the road here I guess. So sad.

 

You mentioned that this is an old picture of the bike, have you made changes to it?

Great. I'll check it out this week.

 

I did check Jalen Besar and Pitt rd (Sungie is apprently gone). Nothing there.

 

There are a fair number of parts in the US and a great place for Yamaha info in general is YamahaEnduro.com. I'm just always looking for more as some of the parts are hard to find.

 

For shocks, on my DT3 I went with Redwing, though I'm not sure if they will be right for a DT125.

Hello all. Newbie here. I just got a CB100 from a fellow biker here. Would like to ask you guys (who stay at HDB) a question. When u guys park your beloved vintage bike at HDB carpark, do you guys chain and lock it further to prevent theft?

Sorry if I am asking a stupid question, I love this CB100 and am afraid that it will be stolen since it is just a small bike...

My rides:

2001 - 2004: Mazda 323

2004 - Present: Honda Jazz

2010 - Present: Honda CB100

No worry, buy another pad lock and lock the chain.
