What happened with the Rebel?
FWIW the Gen-1 750 Spirit (07 and earlier) has the same wheel as the VLX 600 Shadow but uses a slightly smaller rear tire (160/80x15). Visually it "looks" wider than the usual 170/80x15 that most Shadows come with, it's a nifty optical illusion.
"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.
