1969 Honda 305 Dream

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

To build a bike that I could ride , show, and just have fun…

What motivated you to start your project?

I love these old bikes. You can spot one a mile away and know it’s a dream! They are different from anything out there ..

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the bike?

I picked the mint green paint. Not an original color. But I think it really sets it off.

What are you most proud of?

Just getting it done. This is my first frame up restoration. I did a little cussing and had to walk away a few times. But now that it’s done totally worth it all..

What do other people say about your motorcycle?

I had the bike in a show in Huntington wv. I won best vintage bike. When I went up to get my trophy the judge told me he could have given me the trophy when I first pulled up to the show.really made me feel good. All the hard work paid off.

    I have this bike taken apart for I was going to restore it. I wish I knew someone in North Texas that could do as fine a job for me. This is a very funky almost “steam punk” type bike and you did a great job. You must be single, or have a very understanding wife/girlfriend to be able to put it together inside your house. I hate to see mine rot on the vine…

    I agree on all points made about this bike and Dreams in general. Did you have this at Ky Kickdown last fall? I spoke to you briefly about it. Guess you had to be right place right time to find one that buildable for 850, you can’t find those mufflers for 850 which is why I went with aftermarket when I restored my dads 66 in 2012, got probably close to 2g in it and my dad gave me the bike.
