RTW Wombat

Well gang I have finally finished my 1972 Hodaka Wombat for my RTW adventure.
Total rebuild was done on the bike and Kriega luggage fitted for a minimalist tour.
What better way to see the world than on a small bike that is only capable of 50mph!

Enjoy........






Cheers

How many miles you think you can get out of it between rebuilds?

Most parts will last a long time.....will just have to check the top end every 10K or so.......

i'd be more worried about the transmission/selector mechanism than the top end.

Nice - good luck with the adventure!

Hope to see the pics of that Wombat around the world. Do you have a planned itinerary?

I saw a Super Rat at Rice O Rama a couple of years ago, in real nice condition. I hadn't seen one since the 70's. Good luck on your trip!!!
