I purchased my first motorcycle on the weekend. A 1965 Honda Cub - 65 cc.
It's in a bit of rough shape as it needs new wheels/tires/etc. But the story is that it only has 5 miles on it. That is what the odometer says at least. But either way my first step is to get a key for it.
That is where I'm super confused. I know the key code, it starts with H. But looking online there is different styles of the same key code. So I'm not sure which one to order.
There seems to be different styles of the key. As in different heads.
There is a style with single groves on both faces of the key.
Or another style with two groves on one face and smooth on the other face.
Can anyone point me in the right direction of what key style to purchase?
I had images to upload to the site. But I can't seem to do so. So here is a link to them:
When you provide the key cutter/supplier with your code they WILL send you the correct key ready to work. EAsy peasay.
Done it often.
Any recommendations on key cutters?
I called my local powersports person and they were of no help. I'm looking at ebay and they aren't clear.
Is there someone you would recommend?
This guy on Vaughn Rd. (St. Clair/ Bathurst) will cut keys if you take him the locks. He has blanks but they won't be Honda blanks.
Thanks. That's an option. I was hoping to end up with an authentic key.
I guess I could just order a couple and see which one works.
This is confusing ,you appear to have two keys already so why do you need more??
In any case see ebay listing 262443087429 for that specific key in your post.
I have zero keys at the moment. Those are just photos I got online to show what I'm talking about.
It is indeed confusing.
There are various styles for the same key.
There is this type which has one flat face (no grooves) and on the other side there is two grooves.
This style has one grove on each face of the key. So no side of the key is completely flat like the previous one.
Then there is these styles. But I believe they are just the "head"? of the key.
You are confusing yourself & overthinking this.
All you need to concern yourself with is the code # on the ignition switch.
Use this to order or get a key cut & you WILL wind up with the proper key to operate your ignition switch .
You may be right.
My initial google search popped up this. Where a guy had to order a couple to find one that works for him.
And here is the list of the different types:
So you might be right. But if they have different styles of grooves that makes me think they won't all work. But I might be forced to find out either way.
I emailed the person from hondakeys.com and will try to order from him.
