First off, please excuse these first two horrible pictures. I promise they wont be this bad. Just finished for the night and camera was acting up. I am getting a new digital camera this weekend.
So I started with a stock 2006 Rebel with close to 2200 miles on it. I rode it for 7 to 8 months getting to know it. With that I figured what I wanted to do to it. No frame chopping or changing the geometry, just remove some things, fab some parts, add some parts etc..
So what I have done so far is
Remove the rear fender,
figure out the wiring process,
remove the tail turn signals,
remove the seats.
remove side panels
remove chain guard
Add two rear turn signals
Add new cats eye tail/brake light that is attached to license plate mount.
Add license plate mount on bottom left swing arm
Add new single solo springier seat.
I am not sure about the springier seat. It looks kinda off to me with springs from the seat being so close to the shock springs. You can see it in the back of the bike closeup. What do you guys think??? I might use something like the outlaw rubber bumps instead of springs for the seat. Might give it a cleaner look. I am up for all advise.
will be once I double check my wiring and all is correct neatly button the wires all under the seat under a cut to size sheet of aluminum and paint it black.
Get a blank half circle rear chopper fender that I can modify and trim to how I like. Attach it with weld on fender struts and an L shaped bracket and weld it to the bottom of fender and swingarm to hold the fender in place.
Remove front fender
add new handlebars. Don't know if I wanna do Frisco bars, Streamliner bars, bootleggers or mini apes. I am kinda liking the Rabbit bars. I need some suggestion with these as well.
So now that my nephew has left staying with my wife and I for a month, I can finally start doing some work. Kinda hard when a 5 year old is always asking what are ya doing? lol
So this is the start of my build thread, any thoughts, help, suggestions, criticizeism or any words at all,
Thanks so much for all the help you guys have given me. The first two pictures are in stock mode.. I promise my other pictures will be much better..
