I just posted in the British Bikes forum, and wanted to post a couple pics of my Honda Dream here. Recently took 2nd place at the Cycle Worlds Rolling Concourse in Indy this year. Older restoration, not a 100 point restore but a nice clean great running 305 and no drops of oil anywhere. Love this bike.
Thanks in advance for the welcome. Next in line is a Kawi H1 500 im rebuilding.

Lovely bike but I suppose that was one of the models that helped to kill off the British bike industry.

i dont know about that, but I like it :P I dont know much about british bikes but Ive heard back in the day it was hard to keep them running right or they had to be repaired a lot? Is that true? Ive had the dream for about 2 years, ive put about 2000 miles on it, with no probs, no leaks. Its just a great small bike.
I would like to get a BSA some day though. Maybe a spitfire.

I suppose it depends on how well they were serviced in the first place, back in the 60's my much abused RE Conny just ran and ran, never had an oil change, and for a Royal Oilfield was reasonably oil tight, only wish I still had her.
how ever the Model 7 Norton I owned for a very short time was the opposite and a piece of Sh!t, and my BSA A65 Rocket which I have had for about 40 years has been round the clock at least once before I even serviced the crank.

I think what killed the BB's was the Honda 750 four, as it was popular in the States where cornering was not the most needed thing on a long straight road, but lack of white finger was.
