Hello All, found this site and hope its a good resource for my restoration project. I purchased a '62 Dream 305 CA77. Very nice condition but doesn't run yet.

Several questions if anyone can help:
- I've been looking for a manual. All I see are for 300's which I know there was a CA76 300. Is this the same as the 305? I need something to guide me.
- I believe the C77 is the same as the CA77 except for the handlebars. Can parts be used interchangeably?
- My bike is an early CA77. Can I use parts from the later CA77 model (except for the knee pads)?
- Looking for a speedo if anyone knows of one. Saw a nice one on eBay but they were asking $600. The others I've seen are non-working which I can fix but they couldn't guarantee they weren't rusted up on the inside. Thought it would be cheaper than that.

Thanks, Jeff

A lot of the parts are quite reasonable price except for the hard to find parts. Speedo, chain guard, carb cover, all astronomic in price. There are lots of differences over the years, they look similar but won't fit. You are going to have to check carefully, ask lots of questions.
