OK gang. The Cb160 that started this thread is ALMOST done. I sat down last night, cut apart the old seat cover, used it as a pattern and cut out new vinyl, sewed it up, stretched it onto the seat . . . looks great, feels even better!

I desperately want to take some pics and show off the finished product . . . there's just this little itsy bitsy problem: it's not finished yet. I still have to get the rest of the electrical system working. I have the ignition system working beautifully, the taillight is functioning. I still lack a headlight, horn and I need to hook up the wires to the generator.

I want to get it right, so I don't ruin something, but I don't have a proper wiring diagram for my early (1965) Cb160. I have two shop manuals that cover the bike mechanically, along with a bunch of other Honda twins. Neither manual has a wiring diagram for a Cb160, though. The SL125 is the only diagram in the books that' like the CB160, lacks turn signals. UNfortunately, the wire colors are all different on the generator, so it's not much help. I'm also having to generate my own pigtail for the ignition switch, as my bike did not come with one.

Can anyone scan and post a wiring diagram for an early Cb160, pretty please?

If you do, I promise photos of the finished bike soon!

Has anyone here ever even SEEN a wiring diagram for an early 160?

I downloaded it to my Mac, opened it in Preview and then saved it again in pdf format. I can email it to you if you wish. Let me know.

CB160 Paint Question

Ok, here is my first post on this forum. Does anyone know what the exact gray paint color code is for the fenders and side covers on the CB160? I'm starting to work on mine this weekend. I have been following this thread for a while and finally decided to stop working on my other bikes and get this one cleaned and up and running. Here's a picture of it when I brought it home a couple months ago. Thanks in advance for the help.

Ooooooh, that's a nice one! How many miles? If it's original (and indeed as nice as the picture shows) I would be tempted to just clean it up and leave it alone.

Yes, please! Thanks! I wonder why I can't open it? Mac to the rescue, I guess!

Sorry Adam, I don't know. I picked a paint color called "pewter" from a 1970s International. It looked close in the book full of paint chips. Once it's on the bike, it looks a bit too green, compared to the engine covers. It looks good anyway, but it's not an exact match:

Adam, I just finished a re newing on my 160, I left all the paint original as much as I could, it seems to be pretty sturdy stuff and cleans up real well. When done the bike looks like a well kept older bike with a really cool patina as opposed to the concours resto never gonna ride this one again look. If you do need to paint you can color match at most automotive paint suppliers. I think the problem with the silver on Hondas is that it is not glossy nor is it matte some oriental shade in between, the best I have seen was a guy that did a shake and shoot and then clear coated with a shake and shoot non glossy clear, his front fender was original, the rear was the repaint and if they weren't touching you couldn't really tell the difference. Nice bike you have there my 160 amigo! They are starting to get hard to find and I think in the future the ones that remain original will be the ones the collectors will be searching for-not that I would ever sell, but just saying. Cheers.

Looky what I got

It's a amazing what you can pick up for a couple hundred bucks off of Craigslist...Anyway..she's a 66 and I don't know if it runs or not. The PO said it did but the last time she ran was in 82.. It needs a clutch cable..does anyone have any experience with DGY.com? They seem to have everything available for the thing and the prices are good..plus they are in IL and that's only one day ground shipping for me I'm looking forward to polishing her up..maybe painting over that purple and getting her ready for my girl to ride..it's her first bike
