1967 Honda CB160 Cafe Racer

I neglected to post this bike over the last couple of days, and there are only 4 hours left in the auction, but anyways…

This CB160 has been nicely modified to within an inch of its life from a cosmetic standpoint. I especially like the ultra-shorty seat, which is definitely a bit different from the norm. Overall, with the clubman bars, seat, modified front brake, and paint, it is a very beautiful bike. I’m not a huge fan of the windscreen or number plates, but either could be kept or removed depending on the buyer’s personal preference.

Given the price ($7K+ Buy-It-Now, $3,200 current bid but reserve not met), you might expect the mechanicals to be fully modded or upgraded. But by far, most of the parts on this bike are stock Honda pieces. The forks come from the CL160 Scrambler, and that is about the most modified part. The motor was somewhat taken apart, but mostly to check for wear and tear. I will give the seller full kudos for honesty with regards to the detailed description of this motorcycle and all of the things that have been done to it.
