This is a 1965 Honda Dream 305 was rescued from long term storage and then customized by artist Paul V. Walcott from Boston, MA.  He is a Maine College of Art graduate, sculpture, painter and most important of all a motorcycle enthusiast since he was young. 

I drove to Boston to pick up this gorgeous bike in 2010 with the idea of completing the project but it never left my kitchen.  We have thoroughly enjoyed it as a conversation piece but I think it’s time for somebody to put the bike together and enjoy it as it was intended.

Paul, the artist, torn down this fully running and operational bike but never completed the reassembly. What’s left to do is pretty easy going.  It needs the carburetor, cables and exhaust put together to run, all of which are included new.  Some additional items such stator and wiring the headlights and taillights completes the bike.
