Explain this.

Apart from being way over priced, can someone tell me what this is. I'm not sure Yamaha built a DT400 in 1974.

Hehe...that's exactly what I first came across...it gets deep, but at the end of the day it's the manufacture date vs model year date....couple of my bikes were made the year before (stamped on them) the model was "released" or sold as. That brings about some confusion without proper knowledge.

Tank kinda looks like dt360 / mx360.
Also late model cylinder. 1977 or after.
