new things!

So I've had my Rebel500 for about 3 months now. The one thing i dislike about these bikes is the lack of aftermarket parts you can order in the U.S. Other than that, I've had a blast. Recently purchased a couple things from ZEED Parts (Ebay not their website store) and put them on my bike. So i got a new seat and headlight guard. I also installed a new slip on exhaust that i purchased through Amazon. The seat & headlight cover from ZEED went on so easily. perfect fit. The exhaust on the other hand, not so easy. Luckily i have a dad who has a bunch of extra exhaust pipe lying around to make an attachment to fit. It has completely changed the bike once everything was put on. Hope you enjoy checking out what i did! i listed links to the parts below.

The bike looks great with the new stuff, that lift table ain't bad either.

Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool.

Unfortunately, No. My dad only had straight pipes. So he had to bend it to make the curve & then welded it to the exhaust. it isn't pretty under the wrapping! hahahahaha But it works for now until i feel like paying $300+ for a decent exhaust.

Yeah, Dad's are good to have around for sure. My lift table is foot pump operated, that one looks top be air powered, my knees would love that!
