Honda CA description

Beautiful, strong-running Honda 305 Dream with a professional bright red paint job. The chrome is nice and shiny, there are no dents or dings in the bodywork, including the flared fenders. It has a few minor blemishes you'd have to work to notice; otherwise it looks like a museum piece. Even the Honda emblems are in place and show no rust.

The engine runs reliably and predictably, and starts easily with the electric start--no grinding. Or use the kickstarter, one kick on a warm day, two on a cold day. It shifts just like new (that is, a little stiff by modern standards) and brakes like new too (that is, a little soft by modern standards).

Bike has just been thoroughly gone over. Fixed a leaky petcock, new plugs, new fuel line, carb cleaned, new headlight. Tires are a year old with about 200 miles on them. Even the horn works nice and loud. The Dream has a fork lock, heel-and-toe shifter, and both side stand and center stand.

Odometer reads 1822, Actual mileage can't be known, but this Honda has not had a difficult life.

Downsides are pretty small. The hand screw for one side cover is cracked. The neutral light doesn't always light. The speedometer bounces around a little. I've fixed a pinhole leak in the gas tank and the leaky petcock, so the tank bears watching. There's a scuff in the handlebar chrome.

Despite its age, this is a surprisingly easy and accessible bike. I got it as a local rider for my wife and daughter and it's been a blast, and totally reliable. I wouldn't be afraid to ride it anywhere. But that's my opinion, obviously there's no warranty and the bike is sold as is, where is.

I'm selling because my daughter and I are starting a cafe racer project and I'm on a strict three-motorcycle-at-a-time diet.

MotoGP Teams Complete First Sepang Pre-Season Test

Thu, 06 Feb 2014 00:00:00 -0800

Preparations for the 2014 MotoGP Championship are well underway, with the first pre-season test at Malaysia’s Sepang circuit complete. As the first test of the year, we shouldn’t take too much stock into the results, but they do provide a basis for later comparison. Reigning World Champion Marc Marquez was the fastest rider on all three days of the Sepang test.

475cc NS400R. Marquez and Spencer.

Winter may be here but I seem to be as busier than ever, maybe the economy is finally turning around. At my last UK track day of the year I had some fun testing this little beauty.  It’s a late eighties NS400 triple bored out to 475cc and it felt sweet as I zinged round the GP Arena track at Silverstone.   Being stripped bare to reduce weight gives it a very respectable power to weight ratio which means it could live with 600s (on the twisty bits at least).

Marco Simoncelli tribute CBR1000RR

Mon, 16 Jul 2012 00:00:00 -0700

At Mugello Honda graciously gifted Simoncelli's father Paolo with Marco's RC212V race bike from last season, along with this tribute-livery Honda CBR1000RR in his honour and memory.Unveiled in a special and emotional ceremony the Fireblade was designed by Aldo Drudi and was inspired by the memorable Super-Sic colours. The bike will be auctioned off on eBay to raise money for the Marco Simoncelli Foundation. Mugello marked the first Italian round since Simoncelli was tragically killed at Sepang last year.
