Am I seeing that right? The chain is so loose, it's rubbing on the stand? That's insane.

Looks like the complete chainkit is worn beyond its usable lifecycle.
The rear brakedisk and pads dito.
Riding this motorcycle might result in riding the highway to hell.

Try to tell your workbuddy the facts. But then its up to him if he still uses this "soul-seller"

Yes, Lee, that's what you're seeing. PP, I've told him I'll help him if he buys parts.

There's a warning in the rebel shop manual (yes I know it's a different bike) that more than 2" of slack could damage the frame.
Taking another look, the rear sprocket is definitely worn and there's something wrong with that rear spindle. A castle nut should have the split pin going through the gaps to positively hold it in place. On that bike the nut can loosen somewhat.

He hasn't replaced anything, but he made sure I knew he had adjusted his chain today.
