Etc.: A true believer,Randy currently owns four Hodakas and competes regularly in vintage motocross.

Why Hodaka motorcycles? “In the 1960s, everything was chromed. Even our toaster at home was chromed. Hodakas were the ultimate bike and, you guessed it, they were chromed. There were loads of them back then in the beginner and youth classes at the local motocross track. Man, were they COOL. I wanted one real bad, but I was stuck with a 1970 Suzuki TC90 instead.
