You're welcome.

Oh, BTW, you can get links from facebook to share your pictures. Just go to your photo album on Facebook, view the photo you want to post on the forum, right click that photo, and select "copy image location".

Then, click the image icon on the forum post editor , and paste this URL text into the window that comes up. Now your photo will appear in your post.

Now.... we want to see pics of your scrambler project!

Here is the project log I just started for mine on HondaTwins.net: http://www.hondatwins.net/forum/view...hp?f=5&t=18718

I just got this work-in-progress CL160. The previous owner's health is failing, and he will no longer be able to complete it. He had all the chrome parts except the rims re-chromed, and his son had cleaned the carbs. The fuel tank is perfectly clean inside, and the outside is stripped and ready for paint.

I think I'm going remove everything from the frame, and get it, and the swing arm powder coated (black).

As for the wheels, I'll see how well I can clean up the rims and spokes before I decide if I'm going to rebuilt them. If I go the rebuild route, then I'll try to get stock NOS rims, or something close, and use stainless spokes.

A tool kit like that is worth lots of $$$. I looked for a long time and only came across one which I got into a bidding war on ebay and paid a ton for. The roll is whats important not the tools, they were the same for years but they only used the roll in the early years. Now try to find an owners manual another tough one. Steel wool will scratch, use bronze wool it won't.

On an old rusty rim... I think it matters not.
BTW, with 0000 or even 000 you'd have to work to scratch the crome. Here's a tip and a time saver. If you apply some liquid polish to the steel wool it will lubricate and clean better, then after the polish is dry wipe the piece down saving a step by not having to apply wax after the steel wooling step.

Glad to see this old thread is still providing useful info to folks. Little did I know when I started it that it would become something like the internet's best resource for CB160 restorations.

I'm sad to look back at page one and see that Uncle Ernie post, and be reminded that such a super guy and a lover of all things motorcycle is no longer with us. May he rest in peace, or at least have a good long ride with good weather in the afterlife.

Well, it's a long story, and I guess I should start it by noting that "Uncle Ernie" was just a screen name. His real name was Paul St Clair.



Paul was suffering a lot near the end. His wife left him, his health was failing. He was suffering from depression. He was likely to lose the one joy in his life, riding motorcycles, when it came time to renew his driver's license. His eyesight had grown so bad that he would be unlikely to obtain a renewal.

He had a motorcycle accident while riding his Enfield, either because of poor eyesight or maybe gravel on the corner, and maybe because he passed out. He put off going to the hospital, despite a broken ankle and probably several broken ribs. When he finally went, the doctors freaked because his heart catheter was long overdue for replacement. (He had earlier had a heart transplant.) When they got him on the operating table to replace the catheter, he died.

Paul was well known and well-liked on lots of motorcycle forums. Long before I found ADVrider, I knew him from the single overhead cam Honda forum where he was a fixture of sorts, and I understand he was active on numerous other forums as well.

Thanks for the info, very sad. I knew him from some of the different projects that were similar to what I was working on.

Just found this thread, though I've been on advrider a few years. Picked up a '67 CB160 in running condition back in November. Currently The engine is sitting on the workbench. I started tearing it down this weekend. The PO said it was smoking on the left cylinder.

It has 12,000 miles but hasn't been registered since '73. We have the title, which is good. I just did the bonded title thing on another bike (a KLR we picked up last month) so I'm feeling seasoned on that process now. I'll probably wait until it's much closer to being back in one piece.

This is my first restoration, BTW.

I found this blog from an youtube video of pretty well documented photos of a ongoing restoration: http://gordsgarage.wordpress.com The manuals I have are good, but the photos are crappy so this should be useful.
