1966 Honda CL77, 305 Scrambler...

1966 Honda CL77

In 1966 Dave bought a new 1966 Honda CL 77, 305 Scrambler motorcycle. Winter in the mid-west was not the best motorcycle riding weather, so he sold it to get funds to buy a car.

Now we're retired and Dave needed something of interest to keep him busy. He always loved the sound of the Scrambler and went in search of another one. This one that we found in Ohio needed a lot of love.
