Hi everyone,

Just purchased a rebel here in California for $1000, its 1985 with roughly 10k miles.

Here it is as she stands (I've since sprayed a coat of satin gloss which makes the tank match the fender color almost perfectly and also got rid a lot of the rust with carb cleaner and scrubbing)

Here it is this morning before I put drag bars on and painted the fender black

This is the photo from the craiglist ad I bought it from

Welcome. Nice bike for $1000. I have a 2016 with the low bars. I like the bars that came on the early Rebels better. I'm 6', and the high pullback bars make it much easier for me to ride.
