This is a Hodaka 03-125 Wombat. The manufacturer date is: 10/76 Vin#:M-32651. I bought it from the original owner who got when he was in high school. When I bought it it had been in his parents garage since 1980. Most of the parts and pieces were there and a local dealer had prepped it for long term storage. When I got it home I drained the tank of the kerosene that it was filled with and found the inside in excellent condition. With simply draining the kero out of the carb and flushing the fuel system and putting fresh gas in it it fired in 4- 5 kicks and after it blew the oil out of the cylinder/base it purred like a kitten!
NOTE: I do NOT have a title. Sold with notarized bill of sale ONLY.
While fairly complete it was definitely in need of a LOT of TLC! My original intention was to simply do a LIGHT cosmetic make over and sell it BUT I started buying parts and.... well.. it blossomed!! Below is a list of parts I bought from either Strictly Hodaka or Hodaka parts.com.
1) fork seals ( forks completely serviced )
2) NOS complete front wheel
3) New Brake shoes
4) NOS cable guides
5) New front tire
6) All NOS cables - complete set
7) New Fly Vintage Bars
8) NOS brake and clutch lever assmblies with NOS front brake light switch
9) New Scott grips
10) Complete paint job/graphics- done by Brian at MX Restorations.com
11) New complete seat FRom Strictly Hodaka
12) NOS gas cap with sea, OS pet cock assembly
13) NOS chain guard
14) NOS chain Rollers
15)New Uni air filter element
16) NOS complete foot peg assemblies w/ NOS spring and hardware
17) NOS rear brake rod, pring & adjusting nut
18) New sprockets new nuts w/ nut locks & Gold O-Ring chain
19) NOS complete rear wheel, xel & nu, pacers, djusters, rake shoes. I am not certain the brake shoes are correct. I believe I may have received the wrong shoes. They work but require far to much forward movement before they make contact )
20) New carburetor needle and seat ( plus cleaned thoroughly )
21) rear shocks disassembled bead blasted and repainted
22) swing arm, rake stay arm bead blasted and repainted
23) New rear tire ( both front and rear wheels have Maxis heavy duty tubes )

25) New Battery
26) NOS exhaust header hold down springs.
27) NOS left hand handlebar switch... signals, igh/low beam/horn
28) NOS Chrome Head light ring.
29) New Strictly Hodaka reproduction Preston Petty front frnder
I know there are more parts used but as I write this I can't seem to remember! I used stainless steel fasteners when ever possible.
Misc things that need attention: the nut broke off the U-Bolt used as the bottom muffler mount when I removed it They are available at either of the places I mention above
I bought a NOS Kick Starter, ot because the old one is not functional- it works fine, just wanted a nice shiny new one. I also bought the Kicker return spring cover. I have not installed these parts but they DO go with the bike for YOU to install
The rear brake pedal spring is on the way and will need to be installed and DOES go with the bike
The Right side kill/shut off switch stopped working. Not sure why. It may need replacing OR may be a bad connection. The neutral indicator light stopped working. It will need a bulb.
All the lights turn on, rake lights work, igh/Low beam . However the signal light stopped flashing- probably needs a new flasher.
The engine starts very easily, uns excellent, as very strong compression and shifts perfectly. Initially the clutch was extremely " grabby " I drained the oil and filled it with fresh 10/40 and it is better than it was but still grabby. I believe it will need some miles put on it to completely work itself in or possibly disassembled and thoroughly cleaned. The signal lights are not OEM Hodaka- fronts are from a Yamaha DT100, ears are reproduction for a Suzuki TS100 ( I think ) Also, he original pipe is not a thing of beauty.( a couple layers of paint ) I was planning on installing a Straictly Hodaka HT-3 pipe but they will not be available even to order until January.
I have described it the best that I can, lease ask questions and I will be happy to make an appointment for you to come look at it in person and give it a good going over! I will be loading LOTS of before and after pictures on FB. You can find us there under user ID: vintagekingmotorsports
