1964 Honda ca72 250 Dream

Drove to the Smoke last Sunday where Billyfix picked up a 1964 Honda ca72.
With nothing but a sandwich, thermos flask and a packet of Twiglets he has been encamped in his man-shed since Monday, giving it more tlc than he's ever given his missus. :o
....... but it was all worth it. I was invited for the unveiling this morning where all was hunky dory apart from a hint of Autosol on his chocolate biscuits and a tang of thinners in his tea.
The end result .....

Wonderful! As a boy I would cycle to the local Honda dealers (Costins) and gaze at the CA and CB 72's.

Compared to the homegrown C15, Norton Jubilee etc they were so far advanced.
