Current customer rating: (2) based on 1 votes
One of the iconic early Honda's that started the whole success story. This is the big capacity engine 305cc Honda stroke twin (the C72 or CA72 was 250cc). Bike turns over on the starter motor. Never ridden it, been off the road for years. This is the Australian model with factory indicators. This puts it streets ahead of American imports without them making them quite dangerous to drive on modern roads. But there are not many for sale of either as these bikes go up and up in value year in year out. Even untouched this bike is better than money in the bank. Early 60's now very rare and hard to find in Australia and this is the top of the range 305cc. 0418219798 for more info. These were modern innovation at the time with both kick and electric start, four stroke not two etc.
Could restore or get it to point of roadworthy which is not hard. It has lots of patina and not great paint but unusually it is largely complete having impossible things to find like both exhaust pipes in solid condition, the little silver side covers over the carb which are always missing, original seat with the original chrome trim (always missing), original chain guard, original ignition switch and both correct side covers left and right etc. Original working horn, original fuel tank tap (and there is kit available if it leaks), both these items normally missing and aftermarket. Tank side covers and knee grip rubbers in very good chromed condition for age. Comes with correct stand spring and new repro indicator lenses and correct screws from CMSNL in Holland. It comes with new correct Honda Dream 300 badges excellent repro as original. An original workshop manual (no cover but correct complete Honda publication) comes with the sale. This bike is an original Australian bike, not an import from the USA as seen by the two holes for the unique to Oz front number plate bracket on the front mudguard. U.S model didn't have indicators whereas Australian came with indicators as standard as this has. Bike can be fully or Club registered in Australia anywhere.
Although paintwork is rough and overpainted in some places, there is little or no rust, just bit of expected surface. Solid example Easy restoration. Old repair to rear guard.
These are becoming as rare and seldom appear for sale. The bike comes with bonus full free air conditioning and is right hand drive as standard. Ideal limited chance to own one of these great classics which will not just hold but will increase in value. It is sold exactly as is as seen in the pictures. Will help you ship anywhere.
