I collect my Rebel 500 tomorrow (yes, they are open on a Sunday arvo here in Thailand).
It will come with a few accessories.
However, the one item I can not source and have not seen, is a suitable top box.
I wont be needing that tiny pillion seat and hope to be able to fit a box where the pillion seat is located.

Has anyone done that yet?

Any suggestions?

Ride safe and best wishes from rainy Thailand.

My mate here made the brackets to fit on the Fender & used a nylon chopping board as a base. He fitted a Givvi box to it, looks good.
There are plenty of rack options here, join the Thai Honda rebel club on FB, plenty of people selling thier designs & efforts on there.

I think that Hepco rack can be found cheaper without the attached backrest... it's been posted here before somewhere.

The Hepco rack without sissybar is (in germany) Euro 109.00. But i think the solorack for HD Sportster 883 or Dyna could do fine. Im planning to do so. Its just ca Euro 40.00 on ebay.

OK, thanks for the info re Hepco rack CueBaller.
Look forward to reading about your rack of choice Kradmelder.

What should I say?
For me, it looks somewhat like a rocketeer´s bike? :wink2:
Or like a bike from a small-business mortician? :wink2:

Whatsoever, it is in the eye of the beholder. :smile2:
But it´s no good, to haul freight and crates so high above the ground. The bike goes easy out of control, esp. in higher speeds and turns. Better is a low centre of gravity. :|
