Here's the bike now! Thanks to Jody (HKR!) the rebel is now hardtail, has a nice flush fender and a beaut sounding exhaust!

Heat wrapped the exhaust today and touched up some stuff with some paint. Looks and sounds the part now!

Havnt done anything to the bike for a few weeks and its been shouting out for more! Today i decided that the bike comes first and work comes second. I played around with the bars and tried a few different positions and found this one to be the best. I found a half empty can and cut loose on the speedo, tank and rear fender. The tape stripes ben put on worked well when i pulled it off, it left a sweet gloss black shape on each side. Ive been looking at some forums and had a few ideas, so i gave the engine cooling fins a scratch with some sand paper and it turned out mint! I also gave the front fender a quick once over to keep the neighbourhood cop happy.

Now i need front indicators and a propper seat....
