      The irony.

            i liked it - I posted that awhile back on here with mixed reviews but thought it was done up good and showed what that company is into and it's pretty impressive to say the least...

              I thought this was going to be about the 60's motorcycle.

                My brother had a 1964 Honda Dream. He tells me that a pure white one features in the British movie The Knack ... and How to Get It. My library has a copy so I will pick it up and have a look.

                  just a real creative computer ad...... I have a few of their products and find them to be nearly bullet proof, so to speak.

                    I had one too. I don't remember where I got it or what I did with it though. Actually, I don't remember much about that whole decade.

                        You are right. I started the DVD, hoping to see interesting black-and-white footage of London from 1965. The movie is non-stop twaddle. I fast-forwarded to have a look at the Ariel Arrow. It was very aerodynamic.

                          Hmm
                          Look no further than a series of documentaries called "look at life"
                          and they are all in colour and from around 1965
                          There are over 500 of them, some are on you tube.
                          The most interesting are a series on transport - 4 volumes - 34 x 10 mins movie's and a series on science 3 volumes - about 24 movie's and there is a series on the military - 3 volumes.
                          They portray Britain as up and coming, happy, always vibrant and always sunny place....its a massive escape to watch them!

                            Honda CB250/400T was the Honda Dream round these parts. Later evolved (if you can call it that) into the N-model 'Super Dream'. I've owned several variants of both models and none were particularly super, nor dreamy.

                              I think the Honda Dream was the big brother of the "Bently" I think it was called, and mine was a 1966 CA160, while IIRC the Dream was CA305. The CB305/350 (later the CB360 which I also had around 1975) had telescoping forks and exposed chain. The CA series were rather unique with a hinged front fork and shock absorber, square covers on the rear shocks, and a totally enclosed chain. I have a couple pictures of my machine, which I purchased new for something like $600 cash in 1966, got my Class M motorcycle license that summer, and used it as my main transportation commuting to JHU until it became problematic in the winter. I bought a 1960 Ford Falcon 2 speed automatic for about $400 and that was my ride until 1970.



                              One of my friends had a Yamaha 50 and he put chains on the tires so he could ride safely (although noisily) in the winter. And another friend (whose father was an auto shop teacher) got a Honda 90 which ran pretty good until the chain got loose in its enclosed chain-guard and wrapped around the motor shaft and cracked the crankcase.

                              I really wanted a Honda four cylinder 350, 450, or maybe the 750. My CB360 seemed more like a racing bike than touring. I think it redlined at about 12,000 and didn't really "kick in" until it hit about 4000. Never could make it idle nicely.
