This 1968 Honda 305 Dream was totally restored. I do this as a hobby and spend hundreds of hours restoring motorcycles and cars as a labor of love. I am a concours judge and as such a nut for originality.

I started with a very complete original bike that had not been run for years. I totally disassembled the bike and removed the paint from all body parts. I had the gas tank cleaned and sealed. All bare metal was then painted with epoxy primer and sent out for paint. Paint was professionally done in base/clear. Although this is not the original type of paint that was used in 1968 I thought for ease in care it would be a good option.

The following are details of the balance of the restoration:

  • Rechromed
Tank side covers

Fork side covers

Speedo bezel


Brake pedal

Kickstart lever




Other small parts

  • Repacked fork bearings
  • Buffed hubs
  • Re-laced wheels with new spokes
  • Trued wheels
  • Packed wheel bearings
  • Disassembled engine

  • Cleaned and beadblasted all aluminum engine components
  • Painted all parts that were painted from factory
  • Honed cylinders
  • Lapped valves
  • Replaced piston rings
  • Replaced cam chain
  • Reassembled with new gaskets and seals
  • Replaced points spark plugs spark plug caps and condenser
  • Rebuilt carburetor
  • Replaced clutch front brake speedometer and throttle cables

  • Speedometer rebuilt and set to 0 miles
  • Replaced clutch and brake levers
  • Replaced handgrips
  • Detailed seat pan and recovered seat
  • Replaced battery
  • Replaced fuel lines
  • Rebuilt fuel petcock
  • Installed new tubes rim strips and proper Firestone 3.25 x 16 whitewall tires
  • Replaced tank badges
  • Replaced mirrors
  • New battery
Please note that the mufflers are original and not perfect. They have a few places where the plating is off now has surface rust. They clean up nicely but have not been replated.

I have only put 24 "shake down" miles on this bike since the completion of the restoration. It starts quickly via kick starter or electric starter and rides very well.

Below are a few videos of me riding the bike.



Please email with any questions. I am happy to send additional pictures of specific areas.

Thank you and good luck!
