    been a long time....1966 honda dream 305

    Hello all,
    Its been a while since ive visited this site...lots has changed in my life and also in my garage. Graduated med school, joined an orthopaedic surgery residency and sold my ducati monster,my 03 SV650, my Royal enfield and my BMW F650gs. My list of bikes remains below.
    Most recently I picked up a 1966 honda 305 dream from a local farmer. I couldnt resist it. It started first kick and idled well. The clutch cable was stretched out and the brakes didnt work at all, but I could look past all that. The engine seemed tight, there were no leaks and the carb recently built.
    It had its flaws also,,, one of the headers was dented badly (per the story) so the PO swapped it for some other CB pipe (whose radius is too big) causing the front fender brace to knock into the pipe = dangerous lock up! The guy was nuts and told me he rode the bike that way! The stock pipes are swiss cheese also, unfortunately.

    So...the plan for this bike (since it runs well) is to clean it up and gift it to my pops...whos at the age where he is beginning to doubt himself. Hopefully this little guy will make him want to go riding with me again.
    If you guys know of any videos or online readings that I can peruse, point me in that direction! I dont have much time, but love to read on my phone on my downtime at work!
    You guys have helped me get bikes on the road before, and its good to be back.
    Anup.

    check out Bill Silvers site. He is mr. 305.

    Stock mufflers for that are unobtainum. If you can find them BIG BIG bucks, like $1,000 set or more for NOS.

    Should not be hard at all to find that proper header pipe.

    You aren't up at Cooperstown any more are you?
