This little beauty is a complete restoration. It is a 1963 Honda 305 Superhawk. Although a 650 Yamaha enthusiast, I have a soft spot for the 1963 Honda Superhawk I rode from 1967-1970. It was the first bike I owned that could run fromLos Angelesto San Franciscoand back and expect to make the trip without a problem. It was capable of 100 mph in ideal circumstances, it could handle, and it had superb brakes for the day. This is a bike I have regretted selling for the last 39 years so I decided it was time to make amends. Sandblasted frame, epoxy primer, velvety silver instead of high gloss, new or re-chromed just about everything including the speedometer bezel, new swing arm bushes, fork seals, aluminum polished, cylinders bored .50 mm, fresh head by the guru in these parts who does head work for Bonneville Speed Week record holders, NOS exhaust, cables, mud flap, foot peg rubbers, speedo/tach, etc. I look forward to riding this bike and showing it at VJMC events for the next few years as a compliment to the muscle of the 650 twins. It is committed to being on display at the International Motorcycle Show [IMS] in January of 2013.
June 2013 Update: At the Antique Motorcycle Club of America Nationals on June 14, 15, and 16 2013, we submitted this Superhawk for judging for the first time. It scored a Junior First with 99 points. That was fun. In fact it was fun for several days. We've added a picture of the award below. The restored bike now shows 24 miles on the odometer.
This bike is complete and is available for sale @ $8,500.
