    Less than 2 minutes.................... JT list a 428 sprocket for the DT125 as a JTF416, searched for next size of bike capactity wise and the first one I looked at was a BW200.......... same sized output shaft but a 520 sprocket part ref JTF422 (Please double check yourself to confirm it is what you are after )

    I think the holes are spaced differently with the BW200 sprocket, that's my interpretation anyway. I did find JTF1554 to be the same measurement wise but it shows an offset, maybe that would work?

    JTF1263 would be factory 78-80 DT125F, G, H

    05C38F3D-859B-458E-8D93-9D6F1F16D33D.jpeg Local shop had a blaster sprocket and a chain on the shelf, went and scooped those up today, should work good.

    Just waiting on a new rear sprocket to arrive, then hopefully I’ll be able to line everything up to machine the spacers for the rear axle.

    Because the DT motor has taller cases than the Zundapp motor I was unable to use the original side covers. Started work on one side today. Making progress.... slowly.

    The stock fiberglass side panels are very easy to modify with a jig saw and grinder, or even just a file and a few minutes.

    I think they would look much better than aluminum flat panels.

    You are probably right, modifying would have been easier... but now they are on a shelf un-molested. I don't think the aluminum ones turned out too bad, though.

    That’s the plan, it will be for sale.

    I bought a pretty rough 64 BSA C-15 with a strong running motor. I would like to find another Rickman frame and body work to build another with the BSA motor.
