Hey Anonny,

Which pieces do you think are beyond repair?

I'm thinking I will have to buy new shocks, either used stock, or just have to go with a slightly different look that will work on it.

The side panels are what I'm hoping are not beyond repair.

The brake arms look like they might just be a little beyond, which might make it difficult to fix up... but with those I guess I could always paint if I have to. I'm not trying to go for original stock, but don't want to go too crazy different.

I'm thinking I might try the spokes in Evapo-Rust and see if it cleans them up a bit. If so, I will re-lace and true them, but if not, then I will have to order some new ones.

It's hard to tell from pictures but I think you are spot on, the tank panels look bad but again it could just be the photo.

Has anyone ever used a product called "Evapo-Rust" and had good results?
It works great, you can get it at harbor freight or ebay.

I found these old slides of my buddy Bruce's CB160 back in 1968. I basically learned to ride on this bike.
You'll notice some of the mods Bruce had done to it already - custom fabricated high pipes and raised front fender but it's still sporting the ape hangers that were on it when he got it. Bruce actually placed third in an observed trials on this bike in this configuration even with the ape hangers (the guy can ride anything). It soon acquired regular off-road bars, another exhaust system and a bunch of other modifications that made the bike completely unique.

Can anyone help me out by getting a pattern for a seat cover?

Looking for a full size file 1:1 Ratio. Or it can be scaled down so I can scale it up and print it to the right size.

My seat was in too bad of shape to salvage and make a diagram out of.

No - that was my mom's Corvair - before I managed to beat it up in a series of minor accidents that successfully dented every exterior panel except the roof.

No pattern but I got a cover, decent quality about two years ago from here. http://www.ebay.com/itm/HONDA-CB160-...bd8b3b&vxp=mtr

Can someone suggest good replacement tires along with size for street for the CB160? My project is still sitting in the corner of the garage but I got my buddy's 66 running. He's hunting for tires and having a hard time. Thanks.

There are a few vendors selling pre-cut Honda keys on ebay, you need to give them the number stamped on the lock. I have had few keys made over the years at the local locksmith, using that number from the lock.

I've gotten keys for several classic Hondas, including my CB160s from:

http://hondakeys.com/

You just need the code that is stamped on the lock.

Most keys from Mark ( the guy who owns honda keys.com) are about $12, and are original Honda keys with the code stamped on them.
