1965 Honda Dream

What's it worth?

Spotted this while out for a ride yesterday.





Now, I don't know much about these old Honda's, and I'm not really in the market for one, but if I were, what would be a fair price?

It's complete in in pretty fair shape. The bike has some overall surface rust, mostly cosmetic except for the left side muffler. Has a set of original saddlebags which I didn't ask to see. Seller says they have some cracks in them though.

The bike starts right up and runs well. It even has the original (complete) toolkit stowed away under the left side cover.

Talk me out of it.

Is this the one in Oklahoma ?
I thought he was asking a little too much...
But that was sight unseen...

I'm thinking two thousand in that condition.
Don't think I'd give any more for that...

The white ones are "supposed" to be more rare.

Thanks for the reply.

This one's in Indiana. Is it really worth that much? The seller is asking $1000.

It must be low miles as those are the ORIGINAL tires. nittos i believe.

It's only worth a grand if the mufflers are decent. if not it might be worth 750 if it ran and the tank isn't rusty. you can get nice ones that are somewhat restored for 2k. i have a red 305 that is all restored.

Buy Buy Buy

$1000.00 is a decent price......clean up and ride or sell it for $2000.00.


I paid $500.00 for this 1969 6k mile one a few years ago...It was rare seat/paint scheme but was missing proper mufflers, petcock , and the (usually missing) carb covers.....Sold it for $1000.00 + a MC paint job on another bike.......yours looks pretty complete $1000.00?....go for it!

A good muffler is going to be a little pricey.

I think they were made for about 6 years from '63 - '69. The fact that it runs is a good thing.

I'm actually in the market for one to compliment a '68 CL350 and a '70 CB450 that I have. I'll be going through Indiana in about 12 days. If you decide not to buy it, please send me an email with the sellers town and phone number.

Oh, and in the event you buy it, do NOT let a 20 y/o kid take it hill-climbing in a rock quarry. Bad things happen.

yea, the fact that the front fender flair is still intact is amazing. Those ALWAYS got bent up from going over a curb or something.

As much as I like the bike, it's not very likely that I'll purchase it.

Thanks for all the replies. E-mail on the way.

Wow that bike brings back memories... I learned to ride on a K-50 that looked like a shrunken dream.


Cool old bike
