1964 Honda CB160 Sport 160, 161cc. Registration number LKK 544B (non transferrable). Frame number B160-1004552. Engine number B160E-1004857.
The CB160 was developed out of the Benly, retaining the basic backbone chassis, but putting a tubular swingarm in place of the former pressed-steel one, and a telescopic fork in place of the leading-link. Introduced during 1964 the single over head cam parallel twin cylinder engine produced 16 bhp at 10,000rpm, which combined with a four speed gearbox gave the machine a top speed of over 75 mph. Of equal significance was the fact that the engine, despite its high revving nature, was flexible in use. Braking was provided by a twin leading shoe unit at the front end complimented by a single leading shoe unit at the rear.
LKK was restored by Brian Morris of Milton Keynes in 2019 (originally registered as FNK 155C whose paperwork had been mislaid), including the metal parts being shot blasted and powder coated, the engine was stripped and rebuilt and other parts restored or replaced as necessary. It passed to our vendor in 2020 and he has used it sparingly. Now, for medical reasons, he is giving up riding and it is time for a new home, it should be noted the starter ring has some issues, sometimes working, sometimes not.
Sold with the V5C, re-registration paperwork, and many receipts for the works undertaken.
