Additional photos of this Dream are available here for your perusal.
“The Power of Dreams.” Honda has long used that slogan to represent the company, and it’s particularly apt on the 2-wheeled side as the name has been used for a variety of models (including their first ever motorcycle). It was most-popularly utilized with the Dream 305, but Honda also used the name for a couple of 50cc beauties in 1997 and 2004. America only received the latter, a non-street-legal tribute to the RC110, Honda’s first 50cc Grand Prix racer which competed in 1962. But Japan got a street-legal version in 1997 – here’s one of the very few examples that have made its way across the Pacific.
Normally, bikes this small are just cheap toys, but the baby Dream is exquisitely finished. Weighing just 157 pounds dry, it’s rare, it’s small, and it’s pretty.
The original owner of this example (VIN: AC151006425) imported it from Japan in 1997 and put just 25 miles on it until he sold it to the current owner in 2018. The seller does not know the last time this machine was run. The sale includes several manuals as well as the importation paperwork. The only flaw is some paint flaking on the tank around the filler. Impressively, this example is titled in California – note the custom CA plate in the photo album!
We’re excited to be able to offer this little jewel of a Honda – they’re incredibly hard to find in Japan, let alone in the US. As always, let us know if you have any questions and we’ll do our best to help!
