History It's my Franken-bike...sporting a CB250 front end assembly mated to a Rebel frame. A Gen-1 battery box & air cleaner was also swapped into the Gen-2 frame package. I initially dubbed this one "Rebel-Hawk" but am now simply calling it the Roadster.

A chunk of the rear fender was removed and the remaining front & rear pieces were welded for a bobbed rear fender.

Cheap Chinese twin carbs, I may or may not stick with these...I still have the larger CB250 carb & manifold as a back up though.

8" shocks swapped in (the stockers are 10"). The tire bottomed out so I had to mount the fender to the swingarm later.

The old school drum brake will surely feed the overall old school bobber style.

It came with a Clubman bar mounted on Rox Risers but I swapped that for a wider drag bar.

The "Euro-chop Speedo" is a popular mod overseas: relocating the speedometer on the side of the frame's down tube(s).
