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.

Glen Richards back with Embassy Racing

Wed, 27 Oct 2010 00:00:00 -0700

One of the unsung heroes of the BSB paddock over the past few seasons, has to be 2010 Superstock 1000 runner up Glen Richards. A nasty tumble in at the Brands Hatch opener lead to four DNFs, but once back on track he pushed the dominant BMWs hard, finishing on the podium eight times. While many were trading their grannies to fund new S1000RRs, Richards kept the faith and rode the wheels off his Padgett’s Honda Fireblade.
