Friend of mine rode a Super Rat.Weird little bike but pretty quick for it's day.
Great example,Frank. What an iconic design that likely surprised it's creators as much as it did it's owners. I'll bet you know a fella by the name of Paul Stannard....((Strickly Hodaka ))

I've never seen one of those but now I want one! Is that a Kbar I see there?
ssgtrillium, that is my dads pilot knife. He served 28 years as a Navy fighter pilot, including flying a Corsair in the Korean War aboard the Valley Forge '52-53.
I put the knife and Naval Aviation decal on the bike as a kind of tribute to him.
Yes! There was a "Combat Wombat" I had a real cool patch with that name & the Hodaka logo on a shirt when I was in high school. I always thought the transmissions on the Hodaka was a kool idea, using ball bearings as detentes to hold gears, instead of shift forks & dogs...
