Hi Dave,
This bike doesn't have covers on the rear shocks, they are all black, and leaking. The engine is a Type 1251/6a. It looks original to the bike, possibly a change over was made between yours and mine. Somebody might know about when changes were made. I will try to post some pictures soon of these 2 things, and include the engine numbers, which are probably useful.

Thanks

Greg, Sorry you didnít get the word. It was somewhat an informal get together word of the mouth thing. It wasnít to replace Athena, just to get by until after Covid, sure hope next year.

Tom, Not to replace Athena of course, but it would be fun to have a campout in the fall, say at one of the OHV sites where everyone could bring their Hodaka's, and other vintage bikes like Penton, and ride for a weekend. Whip Up, Elk Flats, and I think one other, are not far from Yamhill. I don't know how much interest others have, but I like riding a vintage bike, and looking at what others ride too. I really like the ridden bikes. I never knew anyone that would buy a bike off the showroom floor and take it riding that way. We always put on Preston Petty fenders, took off, or modified the exhaust, and sometimes if it was a street bike we did a lot more than that. Just a thought.

Back to the bike....here are those pictures of the engine numbers, and shock. I tried to find out what should be there from pictures, and other data, but there is some conflicting info out there. Hope the pictures help, but the bottom line on those engine numbers are small and difficult to focus on. My eyes tell me Type 1251/6a. The rest is visible. I can try again if needed.
Thanks

Thanks Bob for sending all that great info on the enduro kit. I will post some pictures when I get the bike completed and rideable. You convinced me to join POG. I will be sending in my application.
