Hodaka Combat Wombat picked up for free the other day. One of the few project bikes I'm currently working on now.

Such a cool bike- I bet you’ll get plenty of smiles out of her!
Hodaka had the best model names.
Thank you that's the plan! Going to use this to race in AHRMA. And definitely too bad motorcycle companies aren't as creative today.
Details on how you came across it for free? Awesome pickup!
Thanks man! A lady had this and a 1969 Yamaha trailmaster 80 posted for free on craigslist. I got lucky and was the first to respond, travelled a little over 4 hours one way to pick up both bikes. The trailmaster came with extra forks, tank and luggage racks too. This bike didn't turn over when I picked it up so I took apart the top end and everything looked good so I took a case cover off the side and found the flywheel was rusted. A little pb blaster and carb cleaner and it turns over now. Only issue is I broke the piston ring trying to put the head back on so I'm waiting for a new one until I can keep going on this project.
Not bad for four hours, I have drove more for less…and had to pay lol. Great pick up!
Seriously! I really lucked out, been wanting to get into AHRMA for a while just didn't want to pay a crazy amount for a bike I'm only going to ride a few times a year
You need to take more pics though!
Thank you! And as for now I only have pictures of the work I've been doing, once I've got it rideable I'm going to clean it properly and get some better photos.
We need to all take a moment to appreciate that model name.
For real. Best motorcycle name ever.
