Second Cool Vehicle Alert Of The Week: Fifty Year Old Honda Dream

Just a nice mall display, a 1958 Honda Dream that really looked great. Probably a 175 cc, a big bike for Thailand. Within five years similar bikes were on sale in the US. The American "Dream" was a 250 cc much in the style of this one, a little on the cushy side. The hot set up was the 305 cc "Super Hawk." They were nice bikes, and they could keep up with much bigger bikes without much trouble. Then there were the "Scramber" versions, lower gearing and easy wheelies. They were all nice bikes.
