I had a black 305 exactly like the one in the first picture. Bought it new in 1965 and put 27,000 miles on it, then got $200 for it in trade for a 1969 CB750. I would have put more miles on it 68-69 but i was on a 12 month paid vacation in Vietnam.

I rode from the LA area to Camp Pendleton on a YTD-1 Yamaha in 63 and used to get spanked by a rider on a 305 Super Hawk regularly. He continued on toward San Diego when I pulled off in Oceanside. But then it wasn’t a fair competition because I would have to stop regularly because mine would seize up.

Was that before Yamaha Autolube & you had to pre-mix gas and oil?

Yes it was. . .Blendzall mixed in when you filled up. . .that 305 was wound up right when it went by me. . .but the operative part of that statement was “when it went by me” Seriously hurt this Marine’s feelings to be sure.

A bit of a story behind these photos. Ever since I lived in Japan in the early 60s (1960-1962) I wanted to somehow own a Honda factory racing motorcycle. Honda made several models available to private racers to back up their factory racing teams. Top on my list was the Honda CR93, a 125cc twin with DOHC and four valves per cylinder (rare for those days). Second on my wish list was a Honda CR110, a 50cc single with gear driven DOHC and four valves. Very rare, only about 250 of these were ever built.

Just by chance, I was flipping through the San Jose Mercury newspaper in 1971 and noticed an ad for a "Honda racing motorcycle with 8 speed transmission". I knew exactly what it was, called the seller, went to see it and bought it. I then joined AFM just to race it once. I did, took second place then put the bike away intending on restoring it someday. It was in excellent original condition, not tampered with or customized (painted, etc.).

Twenty years later (1991) I was contacted by a restoration expert in southern California who had been looking all over for a CR110. I felt it was best for him to have it and I sold it to him.

Forgot about it and out of the blue, the restoration expert contacted my twenty years later (2011) to check in and sent me pictures of the restored CR110.

First pictures are of me racing at Cotati. Second is the restoration expert when he drove up pick up the CR110. Last two are of the completed restoration.

The finished restored CR110 in 2011. This is likely the finest example of a restored CR110 in existence.

Magnificent, storey and pictures.
Certainly that restoration looks rather special.
Thanks for sharing

I see there's a replica road bike on sale here
1997 Honda Cr110 Road $18,000*
And that's a replica!

No goggles. You're brave.
