Good Morning!

I am looking for info on how many 1986 250 Rebel Limiteds were shipped to/sold in the USA. I showed mine for the very first time last weekend. During the entire day, only one person came by who knew that this model was factory produced and not customized.

I thank you in advance for your help.

Have a great day!

Barry in Minnesota

There is no real way of knowing, as Honda does not release info on production runs, period. Considering the number of owners that make their way over here, it's fairly safe to say that, like the Ford "LTD," they were "limited" to the number of people who wanted one all over the globe. :lol:

There is a thread around here on this board somewhere attempting to track the number of Rebels via a partial VIN, as well as determine who owns the "oldest" Rebel.

Shadow Shack is officially in charge of that thread.

Came accross this...not sure if it helps at all. At least you can tell what # bike yours was off the line and where it was made. Cant post the image yet but heres the link but youll have to replace the (dot)s with . to decode your vin.

Chief,
Where re you from? I have a "limited" also and your right, outside of the good fols here not a lot of people know or believe that the "Limited"'s are factory issued. If you ever come up with more info on this I would sure be interested...

My VIN shows mine being # 434. I wonder if other Limited owners could chime in with their last 4 vin numbers?

Limited's have gold colored gas caps and valve covers. They also have gold colored decals on top the tank around the gas cap.
