Can any one advise me if other model Yamaha's have front shockies that are compatible with a 1974 175 TY? Cheers Ian C

Ian, if you mean the Front Forks, yes there is.
The same year/model (or similar period series) Yamaha DT175 has the same fork diameter forks and length is also very close to being the same.
The lower fork legs are not, as the front guard mounts are not located for the low guard. Also the internals differ somewhat for trials, as it was intended for trail work and would have heaver spring rates.
But finding a set without corrosion would be a challenge.

Many thanks subanator.
The search begins!
I recenetly bought (2 weeks age) a working 175 and another that was about 80% restored. The second one is a project for me and my 16 year old daughter.
Thanks again Ian C
