Here is a pic of my cl160 brake pedal, the cb version will fit but has slightly different shape in the center to fit around the low pipes. The cb footpeg bar also fits, but is a one-piece non-folding affair and does not have a tab on it for a side stand. Does it still have the skid plate mounted, along with a block-off plug in the starter hole? Aside from the cut-off fenders and the footpeg bodge your bike looks to be pretty complete and unmolested, nice find.

I'm planning on taking this one all apart and have a shop repaint it white.



Secondly, I've never taken a fork apart or rebuilt one, does anybody have do's and don'ts? and maybe pictures of the process? I know it needs fork seals, and a new chrome piece, since there's a nice dent in one of mine.



As far as parts go, I'd like to find a decent right muffler, a new seat cover with the honda logo on it, the 2 big springs for the seat, and the rear mudflap with mounts. Possibly a new set of handlebars too, or does anybody know roughly how much it'd cost to get them rechromed?
The chrome piece on the fork leg unscrews from the bottom leg, you need a pin spanner type wrench to grab it by the little holes on the sides. I've got a pair of those chrome seal holders lying around here, PM me your address and I'll send them to you for postage. Last time I looked, fork seals are still available from Honda. A repop rear mudflap/mount set is available through Ohio Cycle.com.

This is a fine looking motorcycle! Reminds me of the bikes exhibited here: http://www.flysfo.com/web/page/sfo_m...orth_wall.html

Saw it at Guy Websters a few weeks ago (Norton club ride). It looks better in person!

Another very cool one from Joker Racing

My 1966 CB160 Project.

This baby was running back in the 1980's but sat for almost 30 years. All parts are there.

I have everything torn down to the frame and have the engine benched. It was seized and I tired the pb blaster and 1st gear trick to break it free but she wouldn't budge.

Everything will be sent off to powder coat soon. but...

I have a few questions on exhaust though. I am looking for the stock look or if i can't do that I would like a good retro looking muffler system.

Any tips or help would be appreciated.

a few pics

I pulled the plugs and sprayed a little penetrating oil in the cilinders. The right piston is at TDC and that's when the kickstarter stopped moving. I think I got two kicks before it stopped moving. There's some crud ontop of the piston I can see. The tank is really rust free except around the filler hole and a small spot in the bottom opposite the petcock.














I worked on my wifes bike for awhile yesterday than took it out for a ride.
I'm planning on pulling the CB carbs back off this week for a soak/cleaning.

My battery was at fault the whole time. I used a chinese battery... It only had 12.5 vlolts at rest, should have been 13.5. The stator with the new rectifier puts out 13.6 or higher with all the lights on. Now, having gone through the process I also learned that having kicked in the second set of coils on the stator and aking out the incandescent bulb I was also overcharging the battery! The second coil is meant to be used with the lights on all the time only. So, if you rewired your bike becuase you didnthavea key (like I did) make sure you have a good battery, all the lights installed and running when you have the second coil kicked in. I also found a mystery current draw of a few amps with my ignition off so I installed a master battery shut off which I think helped as well. Hope somebody finds this useful.
I am having a similar problem, noticed the LED tail lights were going bright/dim with the rpms, and finally the light stopped working, I'm guessing I ran too much current through it and fried something. Anyone ever done a voltage regulator mod and have Radio Shack part #'s? I did the rectifier and see CB175 voltage regulators on ebay for $30, but intuition tells me there's a $3 Radio Shack part that hasn't been sitting around since 1971 . . . .

A search on Radio Shack turned up all these little things that I don't know how to use . . .

Nice find, it is hard to find a 160 with all the parts to it. The rear mud flap if its original is worth LOTS and the original seat, don't recover it restore it, there is a guy in Florida who does it and they come out like new. If by our going to cafe it then store those items or sell them, air cleaners are impossible to find even if the paper is falling off don't trash them.

original parts

Doug
as far as I know or can tell the mud flap, seat and air filters are original. It had only one owner, bought it new then left it in his parents basement since 74. He went to college came home rarely used it,got married, apartment and just left it there. A neighbors son got ahold of it but never started it. He pulled the side covers, air filters and carbs off to try to start it but had no real idea of how to do it. the other stuff he didn't put back on is in a box.
I don't think I'm going to 'cafe' it, although I love the look,I think I'll leave it as is. Right now I'm only concerned with the motor and making sure It's mechanically sound, then I'll look into cleaning up the rest of it.

peg mounts, too?

I should add... I am also looking for red rear peg mounts. Don't want mint, do want straight. I've got original paint on mine and would like to find something that'll look good and come close to matching -- nothing rusty or torn up. Anyone switching to fancy rearsets on a red bike, lemme know and thanks!

CB160 Seized engine

Hello there...

So I found this thread because I have started working on my first project build. A 1966 CB160 junk yard find... It is in pretty rough shape and I'm tearing the whole thing down to get it cleaned and running well...

Motor is off the bike, but the problem I'm facing is the pistons seem to be seized up. I have the cylinder head cover off and now I can't seem to spin the cam chain to get to the master link on it.

I have sprayed PB blaster in to the spark holes and I'm letting it sit, but any thoughts on what I should try? Do I have to put the motor back on the bike and try rocking it. I would also have to buy a new chain, which I'm going to have to do anyway, because the old one was broken.

Thanks and I look forward to adding my bike on here soon.

James
