    Question New bike identification

    I bought a new project and am just first of all trying to figure out what it is. It is a 305cc Honda dream. The engine number is a C77E-1003329 and the frame number that was very hard to find is C78-1003280. I have looked at quite a few things but gets confusing with the seven numbers so was hoping that someone who knows what they’re doing is able to look at this and know right away. Appreciate it very much

    The seven digit serial number makes it most likely early 1965. There are some gaps in the dream history, Honda's "Red Book" doesn't even mention the 78 frame #. Wikipedia is,as usual, not much help on the subject. Some reading about it here:

    Yep, nothing in the Honda ID Guide about a C78 frame number
