Nice. We bought a custom rebel 450 from them a few years ago...

I dunno guys.. Besides the extra exhaust pipe there, they haven't really done much with it. And that rear fender looks like something they had lying around, and spent a whole 2 minuts fastening it on the bke. Looks sloppy.
Would have loved to get a closer look on their execution on that exhaust thou, to see if it's actually a working piece, or just for looks.
From what I could see from the pictures on their site it may look like they have joined the exhaust pipe at the back of the cat where the original pipe comes out. A shame really, since a twin setup like this should each have come straight from the engine itself, rather than from behind a cat...

I'm actually dissapointed with it. If some custom shop like this first takes on modding a bike, why not do it proper? Actually put some work into it, rather than this.
Just my two cents thou..

I'm not sure they're a custom shop in that sense. They tend to dress up the bikes in a certain hipster kinda style. Lots of leather straps and patches. I don't think they have a pucka fabrication facility.

I just came to say the same thing. The exhaust is just 1 to 2 pipe they attached after the CAT.
They are charging 1500 to do these add ons. I am pretty sure it is less than 500 in parts. In fact I am pretty sure it is less than 300 dollars in parts and would take very little effort outside of cutting and repainting the fenders.

I liked the leather seat. But I don't know how comfortable it is.



...Couldn't stand the song.

I don't understand modifying your Rebel to make it look like every other Rebel out there. I think the stock Rebel looks awesome and that's what drew me to it in the first place. Now get off my lawn......

It had dawned on me the other day, on what most of us are doing to the Rebel.
We are not actually “customising” the bike, we are “Accessorising them using readily available parts, so you you end up with multiple thousands of similar modded Rebels.

Customising is making the bike look unique and fabricating the materials to fit.
Would you agree?
