Perhaps not an obvious choice for police work, but the CB250N Super Dream pictured was used by the Royal Parks Constabulary in the early 1980's. The main picture shows PC John Funnell of the Royal Parks Constabulary on duty in Richmond Park, Surrey, England proudly showing of his motorcycle. Picture below right is his colleague PC Brian Lane of the Royal Parks. The bikes were standard production models fitted with a Rickman full fairing, panniers and top box. A blue light was fitted to the front. The dual seat was left as normal. Honda's Super Dream was a popular model for the late 1970's through to the mid 1980's with a CB400 also being made. Production ceased in 1983.
