500 Dollar Rebel to Sweet Bobber

I picked this 2007 Rebel up for 500 dollars awhile back. The guy told me it had an electrical problem. I ran through it and couldn't find one. However it did need a new battery. Runs great and not a single problem.

Really dig your builds. Where did you get your seats and tail lights from? I really dig the white one. How did you fan them? Are they BCB? Sweet bikes.

The Lucky 13 bike got the drag bars, seat and rear fender from BCB. Worth the price of it, everything just unbolts and bolts on.

Thank you newrider99. First time I have ever painted with a paint gun. Did some body work on the tank then primer, shot the tank and rear fender white. Then laid down vinyl stickers and shot over it in black. Waited for it dry a bit and removed the vinyl stickers and it exposed the white. Then cleared it all. The Ordnance Bike I did the same but with rattle can. Laid down the O.D. Green did reverse stickers. Then I shot the white and black, once it was dried some removed them and then cleared it.
