Just like the title says, show us what you got.

Stocker, bagger, chopper, bobber, or whatever you've done with it, show off the good stuff here.

Here's my fleet...I really need to snap some current pics of one of them.

My 85 chopper --- 7 over forks, frame was raked to 44degrees, upswept fishtail mufflers, 13" ape hangers, and a few other touches that you may be able to pick up on.
Image

Smokey the Bobber --- an untitled 85 I bought to swap the good motor and rust free tank to the chopper above. What's left (you'll see the old chopper motor and tank from above on this bike...hence the need for current pics of the chopper LOL) is an experiment in bobbing.
Image

The Rebel/Hawk --- a Rebel with a CB250 Nighthawk front end mated to it. My current project...still lots to do with it. Most noteworthy, aside from the front end, is the vintage 80s chrome battery box & airbox cover on the contemporary 97 frame.
Image

My wife's 96 model.

Okay...25 people have viewed this thread since I posted it. NONE of you have a Rebel to show off?!?

Completely stock in that photo. I've done a few things to it since, but those photos are going to have to wait, seeing as it's all torn apart on a lift in my garage right now.

I always like to see what the other markets' factory paint jobs are like.

My hard drive died. I lost all the photos, videos and audio files. Wish I had backed it up on a flash drive or SD card.. :(

That sucks. Did you host any of the files online (facebook, photobucket, youtube, etc)?

I have 2 networked hard drives backing up my data including photos. They only cost about a hundred bucks these days, whereas your photos are irreplaceable. Any hard drive is only a heartbeat away from death at any time, just like the rest of us. I feel a lot more secure having several copies.

Don't waste your money on a Toshiba external hard drive. I bought one to back up all my files when a computer needed to be wiped. When I went to retrieve those files, the USB connection on the drive didn't work anymore. I paid over $70 to lose everything that I could have lost for free.

Memory sticks are not recommended for archiving files. for the reasons Shack mentioned I like having at least 2 backup drives so you are never snookered by a single drive failure. online archiving might be another option as well.

I no longer have the Rebel so I cant share that one. I also no longer have the Vulcan 900, I traded it in. My new ride is




2008 FLHRC Road King Classic with the Stage One kit. Will do the gear drive upgrade in a year or two.

Speaking of pics, my URLs died in the OP and the forum is not letting me edit...
