I was wondering what other models swing arms will fit a 1968 cb160 without changing the length or height of the bike too much. I don't want to replace it will another stock swing arm because I am hoping to install my new shocks and the lower shock mount bushings need to be larger than the stock swing arm lower shock mount bushings.

So, you need to up to 10mm from 8mm?..... you might be able to just ream out (drill) the bushings center metal tube larger.......I have a '68 CL 175 arm that has a different part number (52100-235-000), but not sure how different it is from a 160 arm (52100-216-000)...Probably NOT much, the frames are almost identical except for a couple tabs...It Might have larger holes in the bushes... measure yours please....I'll measure my swingarm for comparison....

mine are 8mm. I was just going to look for new bushes but I realize the arm is slightly bent so I figure I will just try this.
plus I have already removed the entire lower mount from the right side. I thought it would not be too hard to find replacement bushes but I was wrong.

I'll check in the AM...If mine has 10mm "tubes' in the shock bushes we'll work something out....
