Reader Ride. 1972 Hodaka Prototype Wombat 125

Randy Martin sends in some pics of this very cool Hodaka Restoration.

He Writes:

A good friend of mine ( Boyd Thomure ) introduced me to your website and I think it is great. I have already spent too much time on it and want to see more.
I have spent the last year restoring a 1972 Hodaka Wombat as a replica of the original Prototype Red Wombat. When Hodaka built the Wombat and had it ready for a show they only had Red Paint in stock at the time, so the first bike was done in "Hodaka Red" Paint. All other Wombats after that were finished in Black.
When I was 14 years old my very first bike in 1973 was a Hodaka so this has lots of memories for me and my parents. 

Excellent! Thanks!


  1. My neighbor had one of those. He used to thrash against my Triumph 500cc single, and my other buddies Suzuki DR370. He never had a chance, but the bike ran well.

  2. What is the rarity of one of those bikes?

  3. I have one for sale on ebay. A real one. Serial #00003
