My Rebel 500 Abs

Well so far I'm loving this bike I ride it almost every day.
What's been done:
Exaust like emgo
Added harley bags
Upholstered seats both rider and pillion

To come:
Britwell keystone bar
A bit wider pegs for traveling
Belly pan
Gear indicator
Passenger bar(I have a black mate one but I gotta adjust it by welding the holes a bit further apart)

So far that's what I wanna do and have done.

Give me ur opinions on it

Like the bike!! I didn't see a listing for the flipped mirrors, which happen to be on the wishlist for my Rebel 500 ABS. I am the second owner of my bike, so I inherited all the creature comforts that were added to mine, including the gear indicator.

I like the seat. It looks just right.

Just do it! (I did: 2017 Rebel 500; 2014 MT-07)

Yeah I had it upholstered and costumized, didn't want to waste 200 on some seat on the Internet especially knowing that they weren't all that confortable

I customised mine but never took it for professional covering. Yours makes me think I should have done.

This is mine, Bruno. Extra foam (neoprene) made the seat flat. Then I covered it with neoprene sheet. That was slippery so I added a thin layer of neoprene foam. Firm but very comfortable now, and grippy (not pretty though!).
