Went to a Swap Meet today, and scored a new bike CB 160, kind of small but it has a lot of character for $65. The guy didnt know the year, so if any of you have any clues to what year it is it would be helpful. Also, any inspiration pics for turning it into a cafe?

Looks like you have a CB 160. Good bikes, they are popular in vintage road racing.
If it is a 160, you can use 305 liners and pistons and make it a 244cc.

I was looking on the internet and it seems to be a 1965 - 68 CB 160, pretty cool bike.

Thanks for the offer on the tank, but this tank is perfect, the only thing its really missing is exhaust and seat, so everyone look through your parts......

Shoot me some pics, everyone give me some insipration to build the biatch!!!!

The throttle's stuck, the gas stinks, I don't know whats up with the kick start. It seems messed up, it won't kick unless you have the clutch in...even in nuetral!! But thats what happens when bikes sit for almost two years.

damn you all. i've been trying to track one of those down for awhile now and i can't seem to find one. an ex co-worker buddy of mine has a '66 CB160 rotting in his garage that i've been trying to talk him out of for about 3 years now. asshole won't budge. packrat. how the hell do you find one of those for so cheap??!! everytime i seem to find one, it's been either restored or near it and they want way more than what you guys paid.

Nice bikes!!!

Those make perfect cafe bikes or vintage racers. There is a group in the pacific northwest racing those CB160s....check out:

If there is anything I can do...feel free to drop me a note.

Later,

I saw the article last year on that group, crazy stuff and sounds like a blast. Think they'd let a 200 sneak in? Learned to ride on a CB100, used as a dirt-bike.
Nice find!
