NOS Bottle & Wheelie Bars...
Guys and gals,
A coworker who recently procured a H-D (softtail standard), has transformed into a badass. And my Rebel is beneath him. Funny how that happens.
Actually, he's not so bad. He said the Rebel looks great, it's just too small (both power and size). I respect his opinion, but I love the Rebel for what it is, not what it is not.
He also said that the bike looks too weenie, and that I should strap a NOS bottle on it, just to make it look tougher. At first I scoffed and laughed at this.
Now, don't get me wrong. I will not be doing this. At least not for the foreseeable future.
But, after thinking about it … wouldn't the Rebel look cool if it did have a NOS bottle and a wheelie bar attached? It would be nice if we could stick a big fat tire on the rear but I know we're limited there. I also realize that a wheelie bar is not legal on the road. But I'm guessing if I had a reasonably short one, it would probably just be ignored by local law enforcement.
I know, you know, we all know that a NOS bottle and wheelie bar would just be for looks. But the vast majority of other road users would not likely know that. It would give it a fast / tough look. And would be just for giggles. The H-D crowd might give the Rebel a 2nd look, and not turn their nose up and dismiss it so quickly.
Again, I'm not planning on doing it. Just some food for thought...
