flitecontrol If you like the look, they could probably add metal flakes to the paint for added sparkle in the sun. The smaller flakes aren't nearly as visible as the big ones, but still make it sparkle.

Probably the best idea.

Rebel color. Don't have a clue what year the fender is. It does have a mount for a right side brake hose, so it's an earlier one. Chart narrows down to a few colors what it might be. Need to find some color chips.. Thanks.

Steering stop removed. Yup it will get painted..
Fuses for horn and headlight relocated to rear. (don't know why it's up side down?)
Diode relay for Neutral, Clutch, and Kickstand mount under the gas tank.

No Rebel air box to be had. Bought the fender as a spare, stand alone part. ($25 couldn't pass it up, paint is in very good shape with one small nick at the back lower edge. Touched it with up with a very close blue by VW.

Shadow Shack Bummer, the OEM paint site ColorRite.com only goes back to 1984 and gets sporadic after that. Nothing for 1980...

When mounting a CM250 chrome fender on my Rebel, I cut the fender mounts down to an inch or so and had stainless plates welded on, which I drilled to fit the Rebel mount bolts.
