1968 Hodaka Steen Racer



Have you ever seen how sano today’s race bikes are? Things were different back in the ‘60s, as you can see from this 1968 Hodaka Steen Racer. Amazingly, this tiny bike raced at Daytona in 1969! The ACE (Hodaka) 100 cc engine was assembled by Michael’s Speed Shop (which is written on the seat) and raced in

the Sportsman 100 class. It has a combination Aermacchi/Harley-Davidson Rapido chassis. The footpegs are located on the rear swingarm, which means they go up and down over bumps. Scary. And to prove it, there’s abundant evidence of crashes. This is one for tough, old-school racers!
