We thought we had picked up a parts bike until Cody Tellis did
some research and discovered how trick this bike is. All original
with the original 18-inch front rim. Originally set up for dirt
track racing, it featured the optional EC Birt high performance
exhaust which was an option at the time. The bike is being restored
to its original condition and the incorrect front hub and plastic
will be replaced.
John Kovalcik did a full ground up restoration and created another masterpiece.
This bike was an ORIGINAL PROTOTYPE. it featured the original Hodaka front forks.
The original wheel set it was imported with was replaced with a 21-inch front
wheel from the 18-inch it came with. It is believed that originally it came with
an E engine that was swapped out for the most beautifully built Super Rat engine
we have ever seen. This bike SCREAMS. The gas tank is fiberglass not metal. The
original steering crown was reinforced This bike is truly a piece of history and
another Kovalcik work of art.
