The Rebel is a custom Honda motorcycle built by X-Treme Cycle. Below are more pictures and detail of this throwback chopper.

The Rebel's straight handlebars with diamond-shaped mirrors and a lone instrument clean up the look from the driver's seat.

The Rebel's seat insert matches the metalflake accents on the bike's sheet metal. Behind the seat, the custom taillight is a modern chopper touch found on the Rebel. Upswept fishtail mufflers mimic those from years past. Solid rods replace the rear shocks, lowering the bike's profile by giving it, in effect, a hardtail frame.

The coffin-shaped fuel tank on the Rebel is another throwback to yesteryear; barely visible are its glittery flames.
