Friday Forum Foraging: Save This Rebel 450!
One owner's plea to save his motorcycle from himself.
Apparently a cult classic among enthusiasts (I had no idea), you can help save this 1987 Honda Rebel 450 from the unfathomable fate of... its current owner. Found on our sister site, the Honda Rebel Forum, This person is tempted to chop the bike up and do irreversible harm to it in the name of customization, but he's relying on you to save this otherwise mostly-in-tact Rebel 450 and keep it in its current state. The modest $2000 he's asking would then go towards buying something else. Presumably something he or she won't feel so bad chopping up.
Interested? Then head over to the Honda Rebel Forum to contact the seller. As usual, we've posted his ad listing below.
Clean title! 16,390 on the clock. If it doesn’t sell I am going to chop the fender, the pipes, and swap to pod filters and modify the frame. Has dents on the right side of the tank,missing a rubber peg grip, and the clutch lever was snapped at some point in its life. Fresh valve cover gasket, fresh ngk long trip plugs, fresh brakes (both ends) tank cleaned, reverted back to a new oem style petcock (because the 250 mod is dumb ) fresh Honda pro 20w50 oil, chain cleaned,lubed and adjusted, new front tire, new mirrors and LED upgrade all around! I’d rather not butcher one of these since they seem to be enjoyed by the real Honda cruiser heads. Help me get to my next bike, and treat yourself to a low mileage example of an awesome bike! Cheers friends! 🍻
