I sang and laughed all the way home because I bought it for $900 with 3400 miles WITH a Shoei helmet, Joe Rocket jacket and gloves for the price! It was a little rusted, needed a battery and a few nicks here and there but had a really sound engine and shifted beautifully once we oiled the pivot arm on the shifter. Absolutely nothing on that bike that can't be fixed or replaced that will make it twice as purty! I love riding it everyday and on the days I don't get to ride, I feel sad.

used helmets are no good in my books, could have interior damage you cant see...

I never seen such a long list... lol... I do certain things each year, but never that long of a list...

My list: Check fuel air mixture screw, Change spark plug, change oil, change rear end oil, change fuel filter, change air filter and clean air filter, adjust valves, check fuel lines, check vacuum lines, grease wheel bearings, inspect forks, check engine mounts, check fill coolant if needed, inspect tires, check centrical clutch and belt..... This is on the Bali 250.. The Rebel I know only a little about it- would let Honda do work to it.
