1979 Yamaha DT100

Just picked up a ok condition dt 100, and now starting to bring it back to life. It needs a carb, tank, fenders, and engine covers. Looking for recommendations on where to start looking. I looked for example for the carb on eBay and was considering (blasphemy) getting a Chinese one considering it would be more modern and reliable. Thoughts?
Help!

Let me check with a friend of mine in NM. He acquired a bunch of NOS parts from a local dealer some time ago.

Re: 1979 Yamaha DT100

Some Chinese carbs work like a charm and a few do not, thats my experience with them on the little atv's, went through 3-4 on a XL75, driving me nuts.
