The color of the bead on the seat is incorrect.
LOL, Irrespective of the brochure, the seat piping was gold on the CL175, CL125 and CL90's in '68. The seat on that bike is the original, and no it was not silver to begin with and has later faded. Most seat replacement covers, such as on ebay, have silver piping which is incorrect.
A google image search of that model will show plenty other gold trimmed seats. Never the less you have a great eye for detail.
Here's my latest transformation
I just went from this ugly 1966 CL160....
torn it down to bare frame for new paint and parts...and starting here with triple tree, swing arm and center stand back to original.
...and now almost back together and ready to start!!!!
and a dealer brochure for this model in 1966. Don't be to picky because it's not quite completed. LOL
"Don't be to picky because it's not quite completed."
Looks great! My first was also a '66 160 Scrambler. Desperately wanted a new red framed 305 scrambler, but couldn't afford the $200 price jump. Parents said buy only what you can afford. Good advice, but really wanted that 305.
The red framed 305 Scramblers are one of my favorite Hondas as well. Mine has been posted on page 3 of this thread. Great fun to ride and I love the sound of them also. Front fender of mine is bobbed, but I'll be putting the original back on after I get the dent repaired on it.
My first motorcycle - 1966 CL77 Honda 305 Scrambler - bought it in 1969 after the friend of mine who owned it bought a DT-1 Yamaha.
I learned to ride on Hondas - from an S65 to a CB160 to the 305 Scrambler - I would grab a friends bike for a ride whenever it was offered to me. My dad didn't want me to have a bike but by the time I bought the 305 I'd been riding for four years. I love old Hondas.

Another shot of my '66 CL160
I have two 305 dreams that I am going to try to get 1 decent one from, next project
Don't think I posted any pics of my CB160 yet. Here it is as it was a couple of years ago when I got it. I've added the proper tank badges since but that's about it. Still sitting in my project list.
It's one of the all white bikes, from the factory with white fenders and side covers. Think I'll call it "Casper" the ghost!
I wish I had a shop big enough for this very inexpensive 10' x 20' 60's Honda billboard on ebay. Maybe one of you guys do.....
Here's an updated photo.
Just finished up my '64 C110 or as some call it, the Sport 50
Shouldn't the mud flap on the front fender be mounted between the fender and the fender brace?
I believe you're right, so guess I'll be changing that. Thanks for pointing that out
Great work Lyle. I'd love to restore a CL77, a 67 perhaps. Parts availability? Dave
You're welcome. Not being critical, though - that's a beautiful restoration!
My best friend when I was a kid had one of these, in the same color even. His brother-in-law was in the Navy and brought it back on ship from Japan. Man, that bike took a beating!
