The previous picture is that of a 305 Dream. They were, I guess, sort of the touring model , with the big fenders etc. They only had 1 carb but could still put out for their size. The 305's were one of the bigger models of that era surpassed only by the Honda 450 Black Bomber. The picture in this post is a 1966 305 Superhawk, totally different from the Dream except for the same engine and twin carbs. ( I restored this one a number of years ago and sold it last year for $3500. ( The picture is not too good as it is a picture of a picture) If you have a chance to buy any size vintage Honda of that era I would jump on it especially if it is in as good a shape as you say. They are a lot of fun to fix up and maybe you can make a few bucks on it as well....

SO many bike I saw on the road this year being towed/hauled instead of ridden, even out to South Dakota's big Ta-do! Got 112K on mine and I hope to double it before I end up getting rid of it ... or it gets rid of me!

Still got my Superhawk - they were just called plain old CB77 over here. This one's only 15 years younger than I am!

These bikes and their smaller siblings (Hawk - CB72) hammered a very big shiny nail into the British Motorcycle Industry'scoffin - which was made out of one of last year's side-cars anyway.

Ian and Christine

Wow, that is one fine lookingHawk and it appears completely stock including the flat bars , grey fenders and side panels. I have to admit the one that I just sold had chrome fenders and painted side panels which as you know were not stock. And we also referred to them as CB77 here in New Scotland as well. To briefly change the subject for a bit my wife and I spent some time last evening watching videos about the Orkney Islands...very interesting. My wife is of Scottish decent. Her mother was a "War Bride" who came to Canada after the 2nd war at the age of 16 and settled into a community on the French shore of Nova Scotia called, New Edinburgh. ( a strange name for apredominantly French community) The French call it" bot de la riviere" which means the bottom of the river. Could never figure out how or why New Edinburgh equated to the bottom of the river. Both names are on the sign...........

Excellent thread!! I know on the 1000's the real limiter for most is the cam journal wear. Once the wobble starts ( generally around 150 k miles) they can get real challenging to keep running good. A steel cam riding on aluminum journals with a film of oil just does not last forever

I actually have a 66 Dream. My wife is after me to get it done. It was running a year ago. I also have a 66 yamaha 305 2 stroke. I can't get the 2 stroke to turn over though. I have one jug off but the other one is froze tight. It has been sitting since '68 and was just given to me a couple months ago.

You should listen to your wife and get that old Dream running. If it ran last year it should run again. I never liked the Yamaha 305.....ever sincemy Superhawk wasbeaten in a legal track drag race by a Yamaha 305 Big Bear scrambler in the mid 60's sometime. I think the smoke got in my eyes!! (just kidding those old Yamahas were great bikes as well)
