    1952 Honda Dream E type

    Figured I'd share this project I'm working on.

    It's a 1952 Honda Dream E type.

    This is basically how I got it:



    This is how it sits now as I scour the globe for parts:



    And here's what I'd hope it ends up looking like one day:



    It's neat to think that this bike was made when "Honda" as a company was only two years into 4 stroke engine manufacturing.

    That's really neat! I like it alot. Were those sold in North American markets, or was that shipped over? Very cool bike!

    These were never directly sold in North America; as far as I know, they were only ever sold in Japan. Honda's first US dealers starting appearing in 1959.
