The CL160 was made for 1 year before being replaced with the D model. Only produced in Silver with Black frame. The 161cc parallel twin 4-stroke Single Overhead Cam motor had 16.5 horsepower. The bike has a 4-speed transmission and weighs 260 pounds. It will go 85mph as per original documentation and gets about 35mpg. The bike has 18-inch rims front and back. The bike has twin carbs but no electric starter, only kick start. Bike starts on first or second kick. Honda provided a skid pan and upswept pipes.
This motorcycle has been completely restored. It has been completely disassembled from top to bottom. All items that were worn were replaced when possible with Honda original parts. Many parts are still available through Honda for this bike.

The bike is a full restoration and is in excellent shape. It has 2456 miles on the speedometer. I am asking $4000 for this motorcycle. I have spent the past 6 months restoring it and hate to let it go. It is too beautiful to ride. I would like to put in a museum. This is a rare bike made only one year. The 1967 and on were different and are not worth as much as this bike is. Hagerty values it at around $5000. One sold at Mecum Vegas auction in same condition for $4500. I will deliver to the Bay area or LA area or anywhere in a 200-mile radius for cost of fuel. Cash or direct wire transfer only. I will accept Zelle transfer. No PayPal except for deposit. No exceptions to these sale conditions. NO CHECKS period!
