Welcome to the forum!
I think the issue for most folks is the name, not the engine. Motorcycle manufacturers have used similar or detuned engines in their sport bikes and cruisers. But they don't call the cruisers by their sport bike names or vice versa.

Honda designed completely different engines and frames and named the result Rebels. They don't have much in common with their predecessors except the name.

I would suggest that this issue has been discussed sufficiently. Honda isn't going to bring the classic Rebel back no matter how passionately the topic is argued here. Everyone has made their point. I'd hate to see it become a never ending "Which Oil is Best" topic.
I wholeheartedly agree with you. Not sure Administration would go along with opening a new section since the parent company that owns this forum has started a separate forum for the "new" rebels.
I think the point has been made-----------------------repeatedly.
Wow. I didn’t mean to start an argument here. Just like the old style better.
You didn't. It was already going - and it's time to let it die.
