I was determined to teach an old man that I could make a Honda Rebel cool, he said I was an idiot.
I had the bike from teaching my girlfriend, she was over it, and I had the itch…. one thing lead to another, I pulled out the grinder and it was downhill from there.
Ha! – Cafe racer bars …on a Honda… pretending to be a sportster.
That I kept to the spirit of the chop, I didn’t just get stuff shipped to my house and bolted it on. I made the whole thing out of parts I cut off the bike, or had laying around. I even ordered the seat out of a catalogue and waited a week for it to be delivered, straight 80s style.
Young people say – “cool sportster” because they are foolish.
Old guys say – “damn things a rebel?! Why did you do that?!”
My mother says – “seriously Zachary you are going to kill yourself on those things!”
So you know… I am clearly doing something right if they all agree with me….
