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.

Honda Announces 400cc Version of 500-Series Engine

Tue, 05 Feb 2013 00:00:00 -0800

Honda has revealed a new, smaller-displacement variation of the 470cc parallel-twin engine introduced on its new CBR500, CB500F and CB500X models. The new engine has a bore of 67mm, just like Honda‘s 500-series engine, but a stroke of 56.6mm instead of the longer 66.8mm. The result is an engine displacement of 399cc, which makes the new engine a better fit for markets such as Japan license restrictions are much stricter for engines larger than 400cc.

2014 Honda CTX700 Recalled in Canada for ABS Issue

Thu, 11 Jul 2013 00:00:00 -0700

Transport Canada announced a recall for the new Honda CTX700 because of a manufacturing error in its anti-lock braking system. The Canadian recall applies to both the CTX700N and the partially-faired CTX700T (known simply as the Honda CTX700 in the U.S. market and other markets.) According to the recall notice, the ABS modulator may have been manufactured incorrectly and could potentially fail, allowing the front and/or rear wheels to lock up under heavy braking, increasing the risk of a crash.
