SteadyGarage picked up a Rebel 500 recently and already started modifying it.

Loving the look already
Doesn't look like they have done to much to it yet. All they did was unscrew the rear fender and throw on a universal exhaust. I am curious if they did the seat themselves. I would like a black seat with pleats like that.

They also changed the handlebars and removed the front blinkers as well.

I'm not too sure if I like it without the fender or not... I feel like the fender is necessary but at the same time I like how exposed the rear wheel is. But the sling on that must suck.

saw this during Super Sunday last, last weekend and it was cool. They did replace the shocks (i believe) and did have the clip ons which I don't know how well it will work with the pegs being a little forward.

Slap some apehangers on and it would look about the same as the yellow 300 we saw last year.

Well it is pretty easy since all they did was unhook everything. They took of all turn signals and brake lights and didn't reinstall anything.
Remember how we discussed this at the other board where everything on the rear typically disappears with the "bobbed it out" mods, see how common of a trend it really is now? ;)

Yea I don't understand why they didn't put new signals on the bike. I am hoping most riders don't choose to just remove all the lights that keep them safe from the bike.

Hopefully, turn signals and a brake light will return.

Sadly it's a disturbing trend that has grown in popularity, mostly on the facebook groups.

We don't have safety inspections here, but I still have a full compliment of lights on every one of my bikes...stock or otherwise it's all there. Call me crazy but I want the texting idiot behind me to have half a chance of realizing that I might be stopping or turning.

Now if you really want some humor, try using hand signals and see how many drivers look at you funny..."What the ****'s he waving at?!?" Yeah, I had to do that briefly when a relay went out on one of the bikes...it was rare when a driver actually understood what I was conveying with the left arm.
