Rebel 250 bobber.

So, I know this isn't for a Vulcan, but it's the builds sections, so thought this was the best fit....

So my buddy decided that he wanted to bob out his rebel 250, We made a little bit of progress today.

We are mounting the tank from my old VN750 onto the Rebel. He wants to run it as a polished bare metal tank.

Due to the larger size and different shape of the tank, we have to mount it about two inches further rear of the stock tank position. Welding in a new cross bar and nut for the rear tank mount. Haven't gotten to the front tank mounts yet, but have an idea to cut off the mounting 'ears' from the 750 tank and weld in some 2" flat bar and run it up to the stock mounting point for the rebel tank. Perhaps reshape it a little to look nice. Paint to match the frame to blend in.

it's a 1989 and not a dent in the thing.... The factory paint was faded and looked like crap, but otherwise in damn fine condition.

I'm still running around with a big crease down the side of mine.

Wonder how that bare tank would look with engine turning all over, then clear coat it.

Found one:
