GARAGE: Rescuing a Honda Benly

Helping friends move can have it's perks.
I helped move someone into their new apt recently who just happened to have an early 60's Honda Benly that's been sitting in their garage for 10 years now. 

"You can just have it for helping me move in. My parents have been asking me to get it out of the garage for years."

Not to look a gift bike in the carbs, I'll be picking up this condition unknown moto tomorrow after work.

What I've been told about the bike:

- It's a 1961 or 62
- The owner has told me it's a "Benly" "Baby Dream" "150cc"
Some of the above info conflicts so it's still a bit of a guess.
- Hasn't run in about 10 years - parked in a garage.
- No title.
- No key.
- Blue.

In my head, it's a Benly 150 Super Sport (200cc, 16hp, 80mph).
We'll see...
