Just picked up a very very nice 72 Hodaka Dirt Squirt...all original except for the hammerhead shocks. $800.

I didn't really want it....but the deal was made years ago and I couldn't back out. Good friend was working on securing the bike for the last four years....cuts into my RS125 money...but it had to be done.

Now that I have it...kind of like it...as would be the case with just about any motorcycle in the world. Pictures later.

JohnnyB, nice bike to have, and the money sounds right.

It's funny, I've had many bike conversations with people over the years, usually ending with "let me know when you want to get rid of it..."
In the last 2 months I've been called on it. Now have a '72 CT90 with no spark, a '75 Ossa Super Pioneer basket case ( being parted out on ebay as we type ) and an '89 EX500 that I'm selling to another friend.

Yep...I hate it when my mouth buys something years ago that my wallet can't afford today.

Here's a couple of pics.

I saw that yesterday...dude is on drugs. It MIGHT be worth that with ZERO miles....not worth much with 45,000 miles.
They just aren't that rare. Pristine Hodakas only go for about 2500...depending on model.

I've been trying to finish my B25 for the last year so I can run it in the AHRMA MX series. After seeing your, it might give the motovation to get mine done. Any time you want to come up and ride, just let know.

Just got the Squirt fired up. After a few small odds and ends...threw some 20:1 premix in it...fired up on the third kick for the first time in 25 years.

I was rippin it up in the backyard.

Hand over the XLP bro!
