Re: 1980 ds
Yes, DS 80's were imported into North America in 1980.
I've seen lots of orange ones but never the green version in your photo.
I'm always looking for a nice '78 Yamaha GT80, which was my first bike.
These little buggers were flogged hard, it will be tough to find one that wasn't trashed.
Keep checking ebay, Craigslist etc. The parts are out there...a decent example will eventually turn up...try posting a wanted ad.
