Hodaka Days

Are any of the Moses folks headed down to Hodaka Days this weekend? It kinda snuck up on me this year so I may only take one of the Dirt Squirts down or maybe none, depending on how much tinkering time I get in the next couple of days to get the little chrome tank one "finished". But regardless I'll be headed down to hit the show and the swap meet and probably check out the trials competition.

Here are my pair of Dirt Squirts. One stock the other is being set up for Vintage motocross. You can probably tell which is which.

Very Cool! I saved all summer 1977 for my neighbors Road Toad.
Best days of my life Were on my old Hodaka.

I don't ride dirt, but I've always wanted to go down there and check it out. Maybe I'll just put some knobbies on the Wing....

It is a pretty fun get together. There is a swap meet, bike show, car show, trials, a vintage dual sport ride, vintage motocross, and a all Hodaka parade. I have my suspicions that it is purely for mosquito control.

Oh the Hodaka memories! I was on my Ace 90 and my best friend Buddy on his Ace 100. There simply was no place we seemingly could not go on those things. Not as long as we had the trail sprockets on. When Buddy later got him a 125 Wombat and I a Yamaha CT-1B 175 Enduro we got there a bit faster and did not have to swap sprockets either. But those little Hodakas were so much fun and for sure, they did take a lot of beating. Hard to believe that was almost 50 years ago.

Thanks for sharing the pics! Were the Stannard's from Strictly Hodaka there? Boy I sure had fun at the 50th, got to hang out and drink wine with Preston Petty and Brad Lackey. Was it cooler too? Man Athena gets hot in the summer....

Paul was absent this year, it sounds like he has been pretty swamped with Preston Petty Products and the Fortuna Sausage Co. so timing didn't work out this year. The weather was perfect. Nice and sunny, but not too hot, not windy but a nice cool breeze. Just enough to blow the 2 stroke smoke out of mainstreet. Turn out seemed down from years past, especially the swap meet. But still there were some pretty cool bikes there and lots of good folks. The kids had a blast. We have already vowed to take both bikes down next year, probably the Bultaco too, and camp for the whole weekend.

Very cool! Years ago my brother had an ACE100. He then highly modified it and raced motocross at Ascot part in Southern California. I think it was around 1970 or 71
