1974 Hodaka Super Combat - YouTube. See other vintage motocross bikes from the Jay Wilson collection here.
RARE MOTORCYCLES ARRIVE AT THE MUSEUM TZ750, TYRAN, PENTON , MAICO AND MORE!!! KAPLAN CYCLES INSPECTION & NOTES: Performed compression test = 175 PSI (Perfect), good spark. Check gear lube = fresh, clear, full.
Check air filter = new, clean, lubed. Add 1 gallon of half VP ethanol free & half 94 octane pump fuel mixed 32:1 with Castrol 927. The Model 97 Super Combat is a very rare and unique machine. They were a very competitive machine for the time.
Super Combats are quite coveted in collector circles today because of their rarity. Not many were made in 1974 because of overwhelming competition from Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha and Suzuki; but they have proven themselves in the last decade on the VMX circuit.
We can assist in obtaining a transferable registration if necessary. There is more to see! You are purchasing a vintage collectors motorcycle.
Even in cases where we have completely recommissioned a motorcycle that is now in flawless running/ operating condition, new problems & idosyncrasies can arise over-time from sitting or regular use. This prep includes completely draining the fuel, fogging the cylinder(s) & fuel tank, and museum quality detail when pulled from storage. This prep will prevent degradation of the fuel system & engine internals. Heres what some of our many customers have to say about Kaplan Cycles! Great people, honest and professional.
