Fuel is an interesting name for that model, considering that Erik Buell has partnered with an electric motorcycle and bicycle company called "Fuell".  I guess the extra "l" makes all the difference:  https://electricmotorcycles.news/have-a-meet-and-greet-with-erik-buell-from-fuell-in-new-york-city/

           Wow! Can we spell Hodaka  ;) ;D

Did someone mention Hodaka? Here are two photos taken at the local high school car show last Saturday.  :)
