Beautiful. I see some interesting aftermarket stuff on that bike including the aluminum wheels. Shocks don't look stock either. The seat may be an accessory available from Honda (that upholstery pattern and material are period correct).

Yes, CB77 (tank badge says "Honda 300"). I also just noticed there is no electric starter motor on the front of the engine. This means the engine is actually from a CL72 (250 Scrambler) or CL77 (305 Scrambler), not a CB77.

Yep, I confess. Funny, I'll have a hard time remembering what I had for dinner last night but will remember motorcycle specifications from when I was a kid living in Japan.

One other thing about the differences between CB and CL engines. On the CB (Super Hawk), the kick start was forward swinging because of the positions of the riders pegs, rear swinging wouldn't work. On CLs (Scramblers), that wasn't a problem so standard rear swinging kick starters were used.

So, if that is in fact a CL engine (which I believe it is), the right side case would have to be changed to a CB case with forward kick starter. These were problematic since the casting was weak and would crack (they all did if the kick starter was used extensively).

I would like to see a picture of the right side of this bike just out of curiosity.

Ah, I thought 305 was a familiar number, not 300. But wasn't the 305 a scrambler with two high pipes on one side?

Hmmmmm...

Yes, not shown in my photo above but the Scramblers (both the 250 and 305) had cross-over high pipes on the left side. First models had easily removable baffles, later models - not so much.

The displacement was 305cc but was commonly known as a Honda 300. The CB77 (305cc, 300 on the tank badge) was called the "Super Hawk", the CB72 (250cc) was called the "Hawk".

Tach drive added to the CL motor.
I used my kicker occasionally, never knew they were weak.
I has to have a forward kicker, adjustable pegs, never messed with them.
I had a new white CB77, in my junior year.

Wow, totally missed that one (tach drive). The Scramblers had no tachometer, so no need for a tach drive.

Using the kick starter occasionally didn't seem to be a problem. My buddy (who bought my CB77) let the battery deteriorate so he just used the kick starter instead of replacing the battery. Eventually cracked the case.

I out a set of cross-over straight pipes on my Super Hawk (no baffles). Also rattle-can painted it candy apple blue.
