This 167 page, 1964-1967 Hodaka Ace 90 Factory Service Manual provides detailed service information, step-by-step repair instruction and maintenance specifications for 1964-1967 Hodaka Ace 90 motorcycles. The Hodaka Industrial Co. Ltd. has been building engines and transmissions for the motorcycle industry for many years. From 1951 to 1963 they produced engines in displacements ranging from 50cc to 500cc, including 500cc professional racing engines. In 1963, Pacific Basin Trading Company designed a complete motorcycle for Hodaka to manufacture for the American market. The keynote feature of Hodaka design was ease of maintenance and repair procedures. The Hodaka motorcycle is simplicity personified, requiring but a minimum of special tools and man hours to complete normal repairs. In order to assist the owner or mechanic to complete necessary maintenance and/or repairs, PABATCO has compiled this workshop manual. A thorough study of this text prior to beginning work will effect a considerable saving in time and, possibly, money. This workshop manual is dedicated to keeping Hodaka performance at factory-new standards.
