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
