I wish Honda still made the Rebel in a 450. I love the Rebel as a starter bike, but (to me anyway) the 250 always felt underpowered - especially trying to get up hill in a 65 MPH zone. Nice lookin' bike you've got there!YeaMe wrote:Hi All, I've been lurking about and this is such a great forum!
Here's my baby; she's a 1986 Rebel 450.
I took the BRC recently and the bike I rode was a Rebel 250. I really liked the bike but knew I wanted something a little bigger. I was thrilled to find a Rebel 450 in such great shape! I'm already thinking of a 2nd bike, perhaps an SV650 or Ninja 650R.
I, too, am very happy to let people know I got my bike first my hubby has a Shadow Aero.
