Brilliant bike (a bit overweight at (IIRC) 619 pounds. Sadly old, arthritic knees did not match the bike. Didn't replace the knees, did replace the bike.
I just Googled some pictures. Not retro enough. Valve adjustments at 15K mile intervals? mmmm..no. Non-adjustable brake pedal? My 2005 did have that until I found a machinist to fab one out of a NOS brake lever. What is it with Harley?

Yeah I believe you are correct. The 160 had telescoping forks. Had one a LONG time ago.

cb 160?
Hell if I know. Came out of a Pecos Tx back yard after sitting outside since the 60's. < no title >

Engine turns over. Shifts. Kinda rolls. with a skate board under the wheels. Pretty light bike when you drop it. I don't even why I picked it up and kept it. DNA? Environment? Combination of both?

Hardtail is gonna run a jap bike 16 inch rear mag and rear brake system.
