Hello, since this topic is about Rebels (and only Rebels) in Media, I've posted here.

We've already established the Charlie Sheen had a rebel 450 in the movie "Wall Street" (1987)

I will start with the 1st gen I spotted in the movie "Sideways" (2004)
starring Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church.

The bike belonged to Sandra Oh's character. Not a bad movie... -Steev

There are other movies that have used Rebels for distance shots, then HDs for the close ups. I can't remember the movies that did this at the moment, but I know that I've seen it.

Hmmm... I don't remember seeing such a movie, so I don't know the context or the reasoning for doing that.

An early moderator here, GearJammer and his 450 Rebel were in an independent film. Here's a link to the promo, but I couldn't get much from it. lastblastmovie on Myspace

So I'm guessing what in hindsight I think I already knew... Not many mainstream movies (two) featuring Rebels... Or Honda Cruisers for that matter.. That world belongs to H-Ds by far... Too many to list...

I actually tore one down last year which was on Dutch television. Completely unknown amongst foreigners..... Still have the tank.
Interesting... Yeah, the Dutch go crazy for old American Iron, cars and I assume bikes as well... But I'm sticking to Rebels in mainstream American Media, not foreign or limited releases...
