Cut the cross bar out of the bars

Painting the whole thing a gloss black

      I don’t have a “parts” list but as you can see from the images. Bars, grips, seat, seat springs, rear fender, rear tire, exhaust, sprocket etc…

      thanks, glad you like it!

    Hello, I am currently trying to bob my rebel. I had a few questions that I seriously need answered. I am having alot of trouble with the seat, i have no idea where to start. Did you do any welding or cutting to the frame? Please explain to me how you got the bobber seat on, thank you!

      Did not modify the frame at all. All i did was drill a couple of holes for the seat springs. Obviously you’ll have to come up with a seat bracket that works – there is no “direct bolt on” bobber seat for these bikes as far as i know.

    The bike looks great u did an awesome job :) i just have two quick questions first what rear fender is that from exactly? and whats the benefit of a smaller rear sprocket? thank you

      rear fender is a universal dirt bike fender cut to fit. Don’t remember the exact brand but probably UFO or similar.
      Rear sprocket was changed because the 250′s are useless at highway speeds. The change made it much easier to keep a highway speed without the engine screaming.

    I really like it. I was drawn to it by the handlebars. I found pictures of it here: http://www.theoryfx.com/STUFF/rebel/ and glad I found your build. Are those handlebars EMGO Chopper T handlebars (http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/3/13/121/36828/ITEM/Emgo-Chopper-T-Handlebars.aspx)? I was looking at them but wasn’t sure if they’d fit with the 5 in center width. Seemed a bit tight, but from your pictures, they look like they fit great, and I especially love that you cut the cross bar out. Thanks in advance for your help and great lookin’ bike!

      Don’t remember the exact brand of bars, but yes those look to be the same. Measure your bar clamps, you don’t need much outside room to make them work. They fit great and felt even better. Use the end plugs that come with the bars to plug the holes when you cut the cross bar.Glad you like it. Thanks!

    Very nice set up and i would like to know if you adjust all your cables to fit the new handlebar? if yeah, any advice or where should i can get cheaper cables. Thanks in advance

    what kind of mx fender is it? is it plastic or metal? also are those the handle bars off ebay?

  • Jim

    Was it difficult to modify the rear fender to fit the frame, or was it just a matter of measuring and drilling holes?

    Hi I have the exact same back and I am trying to do the same thing to my rebel. My question is what size back tire and rim, sprocket size, and I want a bigger front tire and rim what would u suggest. Good looking bike and thanks for your reply.
