    Best way to authenticate VIN numbers? Or way to tell year? [1968 DT1]

    I am thinking of buying what should be a 68 DT1. I am contact with the seller and we have made arrangements to meet tomorrow. What should I look for to make sure it is indeed a 68? I have the VIN number now, how do check to see if they are correct? I would be super stoked to get my hands on this bike. Any help would be amazing, thanks guys!!!!

    The vin matches the DT1 series. It's candy orange base coat, which it SEEMS didn't come out that year. Also the muffler has a 250 on it which also doesn't appear to be correct. If the frame and engine VIN match up, and they fall into the 68 series, which they do in this case, then it is legit correct? Might have some newer parts on it maybe?
