This spectacular 1965 Honda CA77 Dream Touring 305 is simply one of the best restored examples known to exist. It was professionally restored by well-respected Bjorn Golberg who won First Place at the Keeneland Concours in Lexington, KY in 2016 with a white 1965 Honda CA77 Dream Touring 305 that was later purchased by MS CLASSIC CARS. This show quality restoration was completed in December of 2019 and has only 3 test miles. Some photos of the meticulous restoration are included.

The matching numbers 305cc engine was completely rebuilt and runs beautifully. This machine is a piece of rolling artwork. Clean title included.Imported from 1960 to 1969, the CA77 Dream became the mainstay. With an air-cooled SOHC 305cc parallel twin with a single 22mm Keihin carburetor, it produced about 23hp at 7,500 rpm, propelled the bike to 85 mph, and delivered better than 50 mpg.
A bargain at $595, the Honda Dream was easy to operate thanks to electric start, distributor ignition, and a smooth four-speed transmission with rotary design that allowed direct fourth-to-neutral shifts. The so-called “monobeam” chassis of stamped steel and the covered front forks of a leading link design made the Dream reminiscent of contemporary Triumphs with “bathtub” styling. The “toaster” tank had chrome side covers, large black kneepads, and vivid Honda emblems.
This machine is in absolutely beautiful condition from top to bottom. It is definitely in concours show quality condition throughout. As the photos document it was completely disassembled during the restoration. It was then meticulously reassembled. This bike is the definition of a nut and bolt restoration. The body was media blasted and then sprayed in epoxy primer. The body was then painted in its original color of Red. The color mixture was made to look as close the factory color as possible./MS Classic Cars
