I picked up a 2001 Rebel 250 with 2673 miles for $250 from a co-worker a couple of weeks ago, and this forum has really helped me get it back in working order. I named it El Bandito because I practically stole it. The tank was rusty, the carb was stuck, and the battery was dead. Luckily it was kept out of the weather. Today I put 10 miles on it in a parking lot getting used to it. All I really need to do now is replace these old tires! That is unless you guys have other advice!
