The styling may be polarizing, but no one can argue how important the Dream was in Honda’s rise to power in the motorcycle industry.
The CA77 was introduced in 1960 with a parallel-twin engine that utilized a 360-degree crank (the pistons rise and fall at the same time but alternatively fire). The 305cc engine produced 24 horsepower, which was enough to get the 350 pound (dry) bike up to 86 miles per hour. While it spawned a smaller 247cc version as well as a 305cc Sport version, the regular 305 was a surprisingly competent touring bike thanks to the comfortable ergonomics, reliable engine, ample use of steel (including the fender and side covers) and enclosed drive chain.
The gas tank shape changed in late 1963 but otherwise Honda generally left the bike alone through its production run.
The VIN on the title of this example is based off the Engine # (CA77E101295).
It was mechanically restored 10 years ago (including a repaint) and has been stored in a private collection since then.
It has covered just 20 miles since the restoration, and the odometer shows 17,358 miles.
The work included an electronic ignition conversion.
We believe it has an aftermarket exhaust, however we are not familiar with the SR stamping.
It is equipped with IRC Durotour tires front and rear.
