Barn Find Rebel Newbie Here!
Hello everybody, I am a new Rebel owner with a unique story how I came about mine. I am newly renting a place in Washington State and discovered there was a Rebel in the back yard shed that hadn’t been run in 5 years. I contacted the owner who now lives in Indiana and he offered to gift it to me. Needless to say I was stoked! But would it run?
Partly through the help of this forum, I drained the gas and changed the oil and bought it a new battery. The damn thing barely turned over before starting right up and absolutely purred! I couldn’t believe the carbs weren’t gummed up; what luck!
So now I just need to polish the chrome and otherwise shine her up. Also, the tires look new, but I’m sure I’ll need to replace them.
So, that’s it! I am looking forward to riding this little commuter and maybe pushing her limits a bit exploring my beautiful home state.
