If they are NOS with good chrome, I am definitly interested. I already have the rubber parts that go on them. Would you mind sendng me a picture of both parts? How much do you want for them?
Thanks.

Hi everyone! This is my first post so I thought I would start by jumping in head first. I just purchased my first restoration project ever...a 1965 Honda CB160. It's a basket case and I've got my work cutout for me. It currently does not run so it looks like I'll be dropping the motor out of it right away. I see a lot of you have taken your bikes and really done some exceptional work so I'll be looking for advice from many of you frequently....might even overstay my welcome. Without further interruption here's my newest addition and challenge.



I started to take things off/strip it down to the frame. I'm quitting for tonight until I pick up a Clymer Service manual tomorrow. Goodnight all!!!

Thumb Paint code?

Tank and fenders look great! Do you know what type of paint and the code that was used?
Also, what did you use to soak the carb? Thanks, Joe B

A friend of mine had been collecting 160 parts for years. He bought the exhaust 20 years ago new in the Honda box. He paid around $20.00 back then.

I just laced up the wheels using nos spokes. Should have the bike rolling soon.

Nice looking restoration. I don't have mine to a rolling chasis yet but I am close.
Did you disassemble the front forks and have them painted? I need to know how to get the chrome lower front shock covers off of a salvage motorcycle and replace the ones on my restoration. I have the forks off and the dust seal out but have hit a dead end on getting the chrome covers off. Looking down into the fork tube I don't see any snap rings so I guess the fork cover is held on at the bottom some way. Is it screwed on? Any help would be appreciated from you or anyone else who has crossed this bridge.

I think the chrome section is threaded. They should screw out.

You were correct. They do screw out. We used some penetrating oil and a gun barrel vise with the appropiate sized wooden blocks to clamp the fork legs down and used an front axle and a big cheater bar and they came apart fairly easy. Didn't think they would after being together for 40 plus years.

Thanks for your help with my project and good luck with yours.
