Description

This "VERY LATE PRODUCTION" 1969 Honda 305 Dream was recently purchased from a retired Honda dealer who rode this machine on rare occasions. It is a "nice" driver quality vintage Honda which retains most of it’s original Scarlet Red paint with the exception of the headlight case and front fender which was refinished due to some paint fading. Most if not all of the black components were refinished as well along with the original paint being touched up in multiple areas. A correct replacement seat cover was installed by a professional upholsterer. once again due to the fact the original cover was faded. A NOS (new old stock) RH one piece (late design) muffler assembly was obtained and installed due to the original muffler having some age issues. The left hand muffler is very solid however it does have a couple of small dings. Remarkably (unlike so many other "alleged" low mileage Vintage Honda’s on ebay) this 305 Dream still retains it’s original whitewall tires in which the tread wear clearly and accurately reflect the very low original mileage of 8. 62. Most recent maintenance / improvements aside from the aforementioned include complete valve train adjustment. fuel tank interior coated. carburetor cleaned and set. new battery installed. oil change. ignition timing set. front and rear brake shoes checked. drive chain adjustment. new (correct as nos) footrest rubbers installed. and generally checked over. All of the work was performed by the local Honda dealer’s service manager with over 20 years experience. This Honda LITERALLY starts. idles. runs. and rides like a brand new bike! All lights. horn. electric start. etc. . etc. . work flawlessly. The rear fender had a vintage small bumper surround popular on the Dream’s back in the day that was removed which left a hole in the rear fender. A carriage bolt was installed as opposed to leaving the hole void. an easy fix for any competent hobbyist or body technician. Please do not assume that this bike is mint as it is certainly not and much of the chrome would need to be refinished as well as the original paint to make it "as new" however it does not have an "as new" reserve set. All the correct components including the factory Honda issue mirrors are intact on this very late production Honda Dream (hence the CA78 start of the frame number as opposed to CA77. plus the bike still retains the original motor which has NEVER been removed from the frame) and is not some "put together" bike. 1969 was the very last year that Honda produced the legendary 305 Dream and this particular one could be one of the "last produced"! Your opportunity to own a lot of bragging rights on this bike. The VERY RARE AND DESIRABLE Red / Red combination make for a stunning statement with any vintage vehicle and this Honda is destined to appreciate throughout the coming years. A free and clear Missouri title in my name is available to the winning bidder. Please feel free to email with any questions you may have. Thank you and good luck.
