I'm selling the superdream that has been in our family for at least 10 years
All up and running / riding - motd until may .
I'm very original condition , would make a nice short distance commuter but would be nice to see it go to someone that would use it as a base for an easy resto .
New battery , chain / spkt kit and oil / filter change in May z
I have some small period pannier with it as well as the original rails.
Looking for £750 and it's in cornwall . I could deliver a reasonable distance for some monies. I may have van space on my way up to Liverpool in mid oct.

Nice old ploddy things with a good physical size/presence. I had one and loved it.

Me too.

 

I bought mine with 24,000 on the clock, replaced the borked rear shocks with some I had lying around in the garage, rode it for 6 months or so then sold it to a courier who put 30,000 more miles on it. When he'd done with it I bought it back, got a fresh test on it & then sold it again for twice what I first paid for it.

 

Happy days.

My dad had a Super Dream in the early 80's so I would be quite tempted if it weren't for the fact that the current license laws seem to render 250's pretty pointless :( (From how I understand it I would need a full license to ride it in which case I might as well get a bigger bike).

Nice tidy bike and at £750, it is not overpriced.

 

I own a 1986 125 Super Dream, had it for twenty years. It has never failed to start and I have done plenty of long trips with it. Thought about getting a more powerful bike but it does everything I need a bike to do. Cheap to tax and insure.

I had one of these about 15 years ago. Took me about two weeks of ownership before I worked out it had a 6th gear.

Just fit a 125 conversion piston...just a piston with a hole in it and some blanking plates, seriously they were a real thing when the 125 learner laws came in :)

You are damn right I absolutely need an RD! Ive never managed to own a liquid cooled RD bigger than a 125 and my RD250DX was bought thinking it would be just like an LC....oh how wrong I was

Don't dismiss 250s out of hand - I've been up to 400cc twice now and come back to the Helix each time. Admittedly I've just bought something with a 700cc motor, but that was purely on looks :oops:

Absolutely brill bikes. The proper big brother to the CG125, and I don't even like Hondas.

I keep looking at this
Thankfully the shed is full of doors right now and with winter coming I wouldn't have tbe heart to leave this outdoors.
Good luck with the sale.

The Picasso is the future Morris Minor.

I had one of these back in the early 80s.

I wore out an Avon Speed Master rear tyre on it.

We called it the Fridge,

('cause with the Speed Master on it it handled like a ...)

Changed the tyre to a Conti, transformed the bike.

 

My girlfriend of the time was learning singing at The RNCM, she used to practice her scales etc while riding pillion.

A bus queue in Salford was utterly bemused at her singing while we waited at the traffic lights...

 

Change the rectifier/regulator every 25000 miles.

Yes, absolutely! It's the first decent looking thing Honda have launched since 1986.
