The giant gold stickers on this vintage Honda Dream won’t be to everyones taste – in fact the Honda purists are probably experiencing convulsions right about now. But for Sascha Darius, it was a way to pay homage to how “rookie the build was”. You see, ‘Bush League’ means an amateur performance the opposite to the ‘Major League’; yet the bike definitely has something special about it. We were intrigued, so we asked him some questions:

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

Born in Toronto, Canada (The Great White North). I spent the majority of my youth surfing in Central and South America with my cousin. When I ran out of money (and excuses) I decided I needed to start working, so I got a job in finance and was relocated for work assignment in Vancouver where I spent the next year wrenching on my landlord’s Guzzi in exchange for his wife’s cooking. After a good run in Vancouver, I moved back to Toronto to be with a girl now my fiance. After a year of living together, she purchased me a 1966 Honda 305 Dream as a birthday present, that’s when I knew she was a keeper! We purchased a house near the water so I wouldn’t feel so landlocked and then she announced she was moving to Boston for her PhD so I did what any logical guy would do turned my living room into a motorcycle garage! That’s where the term Bush League came from; it was a really Bush League operation. All the right ideas, all the wrong tools!
