UMG Says: Update on the Dream with Euro styling, better handling and relatively sophisticated ride. Later models had easier to adjust balancers. Ran well to 25k when same hassles as the CB400T. The odd one made it to 75k before disintegrating but most had to use a second engine at 50k. Harsh vibes, shot selectors and rattles signs of high mileage.
