Description

Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

In 1959, Honda unveiled two additional variants of the Dream – the C76 300 (a Touring version) and the CE-71 250 (a “Super Sport”).

The CE-71 featured a 247cc parallel-twin fed by a 24mm carb. Thanks to high-compression pistons and an upgraded camshaft, the Super Sport produced 22 horsepower at 9,000 rpm.

It was available in either blue or red – both options came with silver tank. The CE-71 got 18″ wheels and 8″ magnesium brakes/hubs.

Honda called it “the newest, most advance machine ever produced” – it was made for just two years and very few were built. Experts say that either 294 or 390 were built in total, and most were recalled so very few survive to this day.

This example is VIN: CE71E10050, Engine #: CE71E-10050.

The odometer shows 4,434 miles.

The bike was removed from the woods during cleanup of the property belonging to my father-in-law, 3x Daytona 200 winner Dick Klamfoth. Dick and Bev Klamfoth were the first Honda dealer east of the Mississippi and probably sold this bike new. As you can see it is rough condition with missing parts. Looking closely at the frame I found possible repainting had been done, the frame and fender have red paint under the blue. From reading about these bikes it has been stated that there are less than 15 remaining of the approximately 400 produced. 100% of the money collected from the sale of this bike (winning bid) will go to support Dick’s legacy, the Daytona 200 Monument.”

Cosmetic Blemishes:
This bike is sold as a project – it is rusty and has some missing parts. The engine does not turn over.
