The Honda C77 or Dream 305 was a 305cc OHC 4-stroke street motorcycle manufactured by Honda from 1959 through 1969.

History

The Dream 305 followed in the footsteps of the Honda C100 Super Cub and was also enjoying healthy sales by the mid 1960s. Like the Honda Super Cub, it was light and easy to handle. Its 305 cc overhead-cam twin-cylinder engine gave the bike a top speed of almost 160 km/h (100 mph).

It could be dressed up with saddlebags, luggage racks, and a windshield to increase its usefulness both as a commuter and a touring bike.

Production lasted ten years when it was replaced by larger models like the CB450 and later by the 750 Four.

The reaction of the rest of the cycling manufacturers toward the Super Cub and the Dream should have been one of alarm. Instead, they thought of Honda as just another scooter company.
