    IF your "added" spacing totals approximately 12 mm, I would almost bet it's a CB/CL 175 wheel....(That's what I had to remove to install a 350 wheel on my 175 in my efforts to obtain a CL 77 vibe to the build--- approx 4 mm from right spacer, ~8 mm from brakeplate "snout" on the left ...see pic below)....
    (Measure the overall hub diameter so we can check, you'll need to know to get new brake shoes).....Nice part is the speedo should still read properly.....

    To the left is a CL77, to the right, my "replica" 175 mocked-up with the modified 350 front wheel...(and many other "wrong" parts)....

    interestingly enough, that same modified 350 front wheel is the one currently on my 90 cc "Cafe" bike, as it was already narrow enough to be fitted.....LOL....

    Well, my spacers only add up to 7.5 mm. I have 5 mm on the left and 2.5 mm on the right. And that is with everything tightened except the fork caps so the forks were relaxed sitting on the axle and not forced inward or outward.

    So the mystery continues! I'll do some browsing and see if I can find another possibility.

    One other thing that is different than my CL350 is on the boss that the brake stay bolts to has two reinforcements cast in it.


    5mm on left side.

    2.5mm on right side.

    I'm sticking with my 175 guess, (although the 160's had those same reinforcements, but their speedo drive mounted as the right side spacer).....More likely is my memory of the amounts removed was incorrect, or mental conversion from inch measurements error....

    Read through this thread - well some of the real technical stuff I passed over lightly - but what a build. The talent and knowledge displayed by the OP and others is impressive.

    Thanks 66Sprint! I've found several 175s on the internet and I'm sure you are correct. I'm surprised they don't cast or stamp part numbers on parts if possible. Most of the old cars I've owned tend to do this.

    Thanks again for your help!
