The love of my life. I am waiting on a central oil tank a friend is building to my spec. I stole the mufflers for the bike below, as that one will see the road this summer in the hands of a friend - started this last August.

Also in the works:

This one just got new mufflers, headlight, front brake master cylinder, and some wiring. Also slowly turning read.

Yes, its a Honda 250 Superdream, I had one for about 3 years, slow but very reliable, and comfortable.

Ps. those indicators don't look original, nor is the paint.

Actually, it's a 400 Superdream (or CB400T/Hawk in America). Not quite as a slow as your 250, but no you're right, not a screamer. More than just the paint's unoriginal- 2-1 exhaust, some carb mods, lower handlebars, and a few other things to make it stop and go a little better than stock. Sorry if I wasn't clear. It's my bike. I know that much about it. I've just never seen another one of these anywhere else before. Wondered if anybody remembered having one, maybe as a first/early bike (and willing to admit it). I hear they sold a ton in other countries, but not so much in the states.

Be sure to post pics of your pipe burns after the first ride.

The XS500 was a nice little bike, by the way.

We had quite a few in Canada. From the early eighties, aren't they? I always liked those wheels. "Comstars" I believe Honda called them.

In the late seventies they were all the rage in Scotland, the dream then the superdream.

A 250 was the biggest bike you could ride without passing your test, so every one had 250s, we had as much fun on them as you could ever imagine.
I ride a 1000 cc bike now, but back then the 250 was king, especially the RD250 and the RD250 LC.
Your pic has brought back a lot of memories.

There were 400 superdreams around but very few, if you passed your test in Scotland, every one went to 550 or bigger.

I had one when I was in high school. My Honda Nighthawk S (CB700SC) threw a rod bearing, and I was riding the 400 Hawk around while I rebuilt the 4-banger. Picked it up for $400, added a new battery and fresh tires, changed the fluids, and basically rode the snot out of it. Totalled it on my 18th birthday. I was riding 2-up with my buddy on the way back from the record store, obeying all the traffic laws (for once), and a woman in a Ford Escort ran a stop sign right in front of me. Those 400T's don't stop as well as you'd like in that situation, and I hit the car pretty good right at the A pillar. Not only did it total the bike, it totalled the car. We both were wearing helmets but no other protective gear. I flew over the car and literally landed on my feet unharmed. My buddy landed harder and bruised his hip. We both got in heaps of trouble with his parents because they had forbidden him to ride on the bike with me. Ahhh... good times...

While maybe not an 'adventure' bike..it makes me cry that this isn't in the stable..the 73 x-75 took the adventure from USA to New Zealand where she lives now.
