That's just a mock up on the seat, I've abandoned that approach in favor of a better riding position.

I'm speechless. That ebay deal is a little too much for me. I'll take that blue and grey beauty in the background though.

That would be a "Spokes" challenge for sure. But it's not worth much more than $300. Only keeping to one restoration at a time, so I will let this one pass.

The exhaust actually has factory weep holes for water to drain.The bottoms and seems like the left side get the most abuse, so you may still have extra holes.
The CA 160 has both an inner and outer chain front chain covers ( the rear one is in that pic too) covers A & B,
04 COVER B, DRIVE CHAIN 11655-225-000
04 COVER A, DRIVE CHAIN 11661-225-000
found at Western Hills Honda
I'll look to see if I've got one- and post later.

Well, in this thread, it was described that Honda's change-over from JIS to ISO metric threads was "effective from the start of production of all new motorcycle models first produced after the beginning of 1967." I believe the CA160 went into production in 1966, so I really don't know whether your 3mm, 4mm, 5mm and 12mm fasteners are old JIS or newer ISO pitches.

That said, are you interested only in NOS original fasters, or will you accept new fasteners? If you learn that you have standard ISO pitches, you can buy fasteners from Bolt Depot, or similar on-line sources. If you try Bolt Depot, scroll down a bit and you'll see "Metric Fasteners" on the left margin.

If you have older JIS threads, then you'll either have to find NOS or used fasteners for any 3mm, 4mm, 5mm and 12mm fasteners. For other sizes such as 6mm, the new ISO metric fasteners will work.

You may find that your headaches are fewer if you get the conversion plate to switch to a standard type petcock.

What would be a good decently priced petcock as a replacement?

Is the this the conversion plate for the petcock?

I used that petcock conversion kit on my CA95, worked well. In case the original 5mm JIS petcock screws are in rough shape, the kit contains instructions to drill out the 5mm threads and re-tap the hole with standard ISO 6mm threads, which is what I did.

The kit worked well, and while I try to stick with original-type parts, the modern petcock doesn't look out of place. (I still have to swap out that hideous yellow fuel line, though)
