Off the top of my head, the cb160/175 slopers used a cable operated rear brake. I'm fairly sure the rear hubs are identical to a 350's, only set up for cable brakes.

Here's some pics from Group W Racing of a 160 setup for homemade rearsets:





I couldn't find any decent pics of the rear wheel, but it is essentially the same as a 350 front wheel as far as cable actuating the brake is concerned. I got some crusty spares that I can post some pics of if you want (hell, I have a rear wheel if you want that too).

If nothing else, you could set the 350 wheel up for cable brakes and use an NOS 160 cable.

Honda go sideways!
