1982 Custom Honda Rebel Bobber

This is newly restored 1982 Honda Rebel bobber motorcycle. Some of the work done:

  • Custom leather seat carved and riveted
  • Custom exhaust 2 to1 fully heat wrapped
  • Wheels were rewired to size 19s front and rear.
  • Bike was hard-tailed and stretched but seat has springs giving it a smooth ride
  • Short drag bars giving the bike a great long look
  • Light and ignition switches were relocated, giving the handle bars a great clean look
  • Bike was just painted and clear coated
I like the blue paint job. I am happy that the emblems were left on the tank, sometimes they are removed and I think that the look is lost on some bobbers.

I dig how the wheels were enlarged. It does a a very unique look that makes me think twice about what kind of motorcycle wheels I want on my bobber.

The solo seat leaves me with a little confusion. I have never seen a solo seat like this and I do not think that it is that confortable. It looks like this is a show bobber.

Overall I would rate this bobber a 3 out of 5 based on safety. I would have liked to see a mirror and some rear brake lights on this bobber. What are your thoughts on safety? Do you want to see mirrors and rear brake lights on your bobber?
