    This Honda Dream is in original condition(a true SURVIVOR CLASS bike).
    The tires, handlebar grips (read Honda on them) and all paint is still the original.
    The miles are actual, but of coarse the title reads beyond capabilities.

    The circa 60's accessories that come with the bike are: Buco saddlebags and brackets, Buco windshield,
    Rear chrome rack and Engine guards. The only things that I have replaced on the bike are the air cleaner,
    tank badges and the original coil (the first owner said 'she' quit one day on the way back to the farm,
    and that's the last time I looked at it). I've owned the bike for approx. 6 years and ride it occasionally.
    I've put about 300 miles on it, but the tires are original and SPEED is a scary factor.
    The bike starts easily by kicking the kick-starter or using the electric starter

    Always, and still do, think the
    Honda Dreams are as ugly as hey come, the forks, the headlight/speedo, all make me wince. That said it might be worth what they are asking :puke1

    If it were a Super Hawk or a CL then I'd be interested:D

    I guess beauty is in the eye of the beer holder. :lol3 I have always loved the pressed steel frame, blocky fenders, modified Earls front end and angular speedo. I guess I like it because it is different and unique. If I remember right they rode OK but it has been just a couple of years since I had one. :lol3

    I'll bet it still shifts better than 90% of the bikes sold today.

    I had a Mate in NZ that had one , smoky little bugger but he loved it !

    Laverda took that Dream motor into consideration when they built the 750 SF .

    The Laverda twin's cylinders bear an uncanny resemblance to the Honda 'Type I' cylinders

    Even more than the cylinders Laverda copied the "bulletproof" bottom end of the Dream .

    A riding buddy had one of those for a SHORT while. You can achieve the same effect by finding a street crew tearing up some concrete. Ask to use their jackhammer for about 15 minutes. :D

    That's because they copied Honda - just as Bennelli did - the Bennelli 6 cylinder is basically a 500/550-4 with an extra cylinder on each end.

    I assume you would apply the jackhammer to your rear end and handle bars rather than to the street.:D Sure does look awesome though. But nine out of ten say it is junk, so must be.
