Little Motorcycle: 1966 Honda Dream

I just received my January/February 2014 issue and read 1966 Honda DreamGreg Williams’ excellent article Honda Dream CA77 about Jim Jebavy’s 1966 Honda Dream. I am moved to send along pictures of my Dream named Woodstock, also a 1966 but with a sidecar. This little motorcycle is definitely the keeper of my fleet when all is over with my motorcycle riding days.

I could never have a motorcycle while living at home when I was young, but since my junior year of university (1970-1971) I’ve always had a motorcycle at the ready. Thanks to Greg for writing about Jim’s Dream. His article gave me much enjoyment and I get to re-read it (a bonus) and also to enjoy Jeff Barger’s excellent photos. — Pete Dopson/Sudbury, Ontario, Canada
