Got it....

My guess is a 69 superhawk? I need more clarity though.

Do you have this in person can't you somehow look up the vin to tell exactly the model/ year?? I am curious about this process too.

Real bikes are built in garages.
Nah, not a dream. Looks like a superhawk. The finned tach cover is throwing me though.

Definitely not a Superhawk. I'm not sure it's a Honda at all. The cover on the side of the engine (right above the plug) doesn't look like any Honda stuff. Honda used pressed steel that was chromed for all those parts on their early models.

Looking more closely, I see the seat says, "Honda", so maybe it is one.

Here's a CB72:

Looks like a lot of differences in the engine though...

Split personality, I fake being smart
It looks pretty small, 1965, CB160, maybe even a 125? (which would be pretty rare)

PJ is correct. It's a CB160.

In Japan or the UK it might have been a CB125 (CB93 model code) which looked very similar but had a motor that basically came from the CB/C92. But it's not a 125.

Frame and engine numbers are never an exact match on those bikes, so as long as they are close, it's all good.

Later CB160's had alloy fork legs but most came with steel legs like the CB72/77 from which the styling was derived. Replaced in 68/69 by the CB175 sloper for one year and then the 175 verticals
