pacomotorstuff, The pipes you see fit well. They are aftermarket. I bought a set of CL175 pipes from the same engine series. I didn't realize that the pipe was a larger diameter. CL160 pipes were really hard to find.
Ya I thought the pipes in the photos fit pretty good. Had a similar problem putting CL pipes on my CD - the pipes were bigger diameter but with a little bit a creative work plus some bits from another Honda and I was there.
And feel free to call me Pat. Pacomotorstuff is my company.
I found a part that allows me to keep the straight pipes on. This is NOS from 1968.

I remember these things from the '60's. You're going to have a real '60's original, my man!

Very cool find, first I've seen of them. Let us know how they work out.

What size tires are you running? Are they 2.50 - 18? If so, what kind are they? I need tires for my MB5 and they look nice.
The tires are Michelin Gazelles. They were all I could find to fit. As far as removing the parts from the package, I agree, it will be painful. If the end justifies the means, we'll be ok. After Christmas, if the snow leaves, I'll install and put up a demo.
Snuff or nots installed.
