February Vintage Bike OC Meet
1966 Hodaka Badge

Huntington Beach, Calif. - It was another great afternoon in HB. It started out a little rough with four cars parked where we line up, but they were gone soon enough and we were in full swing. At the start we had 60 bikes in the lot, and by the end we counted 115 and a really good meet.

We had many new people and bikes today, which is always good to see but voting was all over the board eighteen bikes recieved one or more votes. We did have one clear winner and a tie for third place.

Bike of the Month
Congratulations to Joshua Sult of Laguna Beach for winning Bike of the Month with his 1966 BMW R60/2. Josh won a trophy provided by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys. Josh bought the R60 from Shawn Boeker who restored it and brought it to the meet back in September, 2013. Read all about the 1966 BMW R60/2 on our Bike of the Month page.

Second Place
Long time member Kevin Blatty of Huntington Beach came in Second with his 1966 Hodaka Ace 90. Kevin has only owned the bike two weeks, but has done alot in a short time. He bought the bike from Gene Stebley in Los Alamos.

This was Kevin's first win, but his brothers have won twice before: January 2010 Bill Blaty - 1968 Hodaka H100
December 2009 John Blaty - 1969 Sears SR124

Third Place - Tie
Dave Trepanier of Huntington Beach tied for Third place with his 1975 Yamaha RD60. I missed interviewing Dave about his bike.

Tony Nguyen also of Huntington Beach tied for Third with his 1948 Harley Davidson Knucklehead chopper. Originally built in Florida in the 1970's, Tony bought it from Eric Sorenson, a relative of David Mann and is captured in one of his paintings. Tony has owned the knucklehead for a year and has made some of his own modifications to it.

Thanks to everyone for showing up and making this another great event and a special thanks to the team, Tom & Debbie Hopkins. I'll see you next month on March 11, 2018.

Keep On Ridin',
