1972 Hodaka Model 94 Wombat

Congratulations to Rich Romano of Yorba Linda for winning Bike of the Month with his 1972 Hodaka Model 94 Wombat. Rich won a plaque provided by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys.

This is a bike Rich has wanted since he was a kid. He finally is able to afford it, and bought this one two years ago and started the restoration.

Hodaka was a joint Japanese and America company distributed by PABATCO (Pacific Basin Trading Company) of Athena, Oregon. There is a great article on Hodaka's on Wikipedia: Hodaka.

This is the second Hodaka to win Bike of the Month. Bill Blaty won back in January 2010 with hise 1968 Hodaka H100 Custom Trials Bike.

Thank you Rich for bringing your Hodaka out for all of us to see. See all the photos in our December Gallery.
