New Rebel New Mods
Ive owned a lot of different motorcycles over the years, and the Honda Rebel has always been one of my favorites. Should have never sold my first one. Anyway, three weeks ago I picked up a new rebel, well a 2002 CMX250 with 13000 on the clock.
The bike was in rough shape, but the price was right. The bike didn't have keys and the motor was locked up. It had good tires, had clean oil in it so I figured it had potential.
After bringing it home I soaked the cylinders with Marvel mystery for a few hours, and the motor spun over with help from the starter. Then I went to work cleaning out the carburetor. After about four hours of soaking the motor and cleaning the carb she fired right up.
Ive been tinkering with it on my days off, and have ridden it about 20 miles thus far. It runs good, like a rebel should.
I plan on keeping the bike mostly stock with a few tasteful mods here and there. I plan to document the build with lots of pictures. I'm open to any questions, comments, or concerns about the build.
