Another Rebel...

Hello there,


So there is my rebel at the moment, for starters I went for this specific breed due to my attraction for custom bikes, without needing the drama of old engines and security issues one might have in mind (yes I certainly am paranoid, which doesn't fit for a custom rider). Plus my previous bike died in the highway (Honda Shadow 1997 - 2018 rip)

- First of all I switched pegs, when you ride for 6 hours it starts to get painfull
- I also switched the cover of the front brake fluid tank, which was so far the most complex thing to do.
- I changed the muffler for something with a more girlish sound
- Who needs the rear fender ?
- my mud guard sucks, I removed the one I bought, thus, I hate rain (when I ride).
- Yes my plate is currently Illegal, don't do that.



Any comments or suggestions welcome

Suggestions get a rear fender, as someone have mentioned here old front fenders from other bikes work wonders in the look department, apart from that it looks great and might I know where you got the pegs?

The rain, mud and dust told me that as well, I'm starting to think about engineering something out of aluminum, I don't know if you guys have put a weight on the oem fender, it's a nice baby. I bought the pegs on Zeedparts (don't buy the mudguard though, it's not worth it).

Oh that red thing ? it's electrical copper wire, I'm looking for something more suitable. (If you remove the oem fender, the passenger pegs holder have no more support thus the exhaust bracket neither) But the leoVince Is quite light (1.93kg) compared to the 4kg originally. Your concern is legitimate
