c1965 Honda CB77 305cc 'Dream' Motorcycle
Founded in 1948 by Soichiro Honda, the Honda Motor Company was envisioned to create economical and reliable transportation. By 1959, the company had established itself in Los Angeles, California, under the name "American Honda Motor Company" and began importing motorcycles to the U.S. Following the success of Honda's C100 Super Cub, the C77 emerged as a versatile and popular motorcycle. It's 305cc twin engine allowed for speeds near 100mph and could be equipped with windshields, saddlebags and other accessories for touring. The Dream 305 was produced for 10 years and enjoyed healthy sales worldwide. They were available in Black, White, Blue and Scarlet Red. By 1969, motorcyclists demanded more performance and the C77 was retired. Honda would replace the Dream and the Super hawk with larger twins and four-cylinder models, such as the CB750 The Dream is avidly collected by motorcycle aficionados and has a very strong presence in the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Clubs.
