    Ahhh yes! My first tourer was a H2 widowmaker too. Only from UK to france tho. The petrol tanker that follwed me wouldn't go any further.

    I don’t think you often see a $6000 price tag on a Hodaka either. At least not when they were new.

    Wow! I worked at a shop that sold Hodaka (also Suzuki, Kawasaki, Honda and Bultaco) and think I only saw two, maybe three of those.

    Not sure what yr model these bikes are but I do think they are the original mono-shocks suspension ~design that Pierre Karsmakers rode to fame and into history in the late 70s? These are not garage queens and somehow still run well on the trails and tracks. A disc front brake has been added and I'm sure something like the piston&rings are not OEM, forks maybe not be original also. I've chased these guys on my ~newer model Huskies more than once on trails here.

    Pretty sure this is a 175cc bike also.

    The Norkis Company brought in a ton of YammaHammers 2t bikes back in the 80s-90s(?) and they still pretty much rule the trail riding here.

    Very nice. Have you ever taken the time to really look at the brilliance of the HRD Vincent? Dual wheel sprockets to quickly change gear ratios. The engine oil tank is also the frame. So many great ideas in one machine.
