This 1965 Honda CB160 was acquired by the seller in 2017 and subsequently underwent a refurbishment that was completed in 2020 and included a repaint in red and silver, and replacement of the carburetors, spark plugs, points, shocks, seat cover, fuel cap, and petcock. Power comes from a 161cc four-stroke parallel twin paired with a four-speed transmission, and features include a steering damper, a twin leading-shoe front drum brake, a chrome dual exhaust system, and chrome fuel tank side panels with rubber knee grips. The battery was replaced and the oil changed in preparation for sale. This CB160 is now offered at no reserve with a tool kit, an owner’s manual, a parts catalog, a repair manual, period literature, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.
The fuel tank, fork, headlight, and frame were refinished in red and the fenders and side panels were repainted in silver in 2020. The seller states that the fuel tank was internally and externally cleaned prior to the repaint and that a replacement fuel cap and petcock were installed. Features include a recovered two-up seat, a headlight, a taillight, a steering damper, a center stand, a tool box, chrome mirrors, and chrome fuel tank side panels with rubber knee grips.
Wire-spoke 18″ wheels wear Duro tires showing 2015 and 2016 date codes. Suspension consists of a conventional fork with replacement seals as well as a swingarm with replacement dual preload-adjustable shrouded shocks. Braking is from drums at both ends, with the front featuring a twin leading-shoe design.
The headlight bucket contains a Nippon Seiki 100-mph speedometer that displays recommended shift points. The five-digit odometer shows 2,200 miles, 200 of which have been ridden by the seller. The neutral light is slow to light up per the seller.
The 161cc four-stroke parallel twin was factory rated at 16.5 horsepower and is equipped with a chrome dual exhaust system as well as both kick and electric starters. Service in 2020 reportedly included adjusting the valves, setting the timing, and replacing the twin carburetors, points, and spark plugs. The battery was replaced and the oil changed in preparation for sale.
Power is set to the rear wheel through a four-speed transmission and a drive chain.
An owner’s manual, a Honda parts catalog, a repair manual, period literature, and a tool kit are included in the sale.
The bike is registered as Planned Non-operation in the state of California.
