1982 Rebel Racing 24

rides really nice and is very light.i was told less than 200 were produced.not sure if that is true but i have only seen 2 others and i have been at this since i was 10.

Enter content here.owned it since 82 bought it at my local track at the aba signup trailer.raced it a little mostly was a cruiser and just something for my dad to ride.he did that like 2 times...hahahaha.it was original chrome but over the years it was painted so many times.white looked best ...it even was a red white and blue fade job at one time.i just need to get a set of comp tires for it and she will be done...i ride all my bikes

Re: 1982 Rebel Racing 24

what kind if question is that???yeah i have a general lee,a 24,and another frame that is unidentified but all signs say rebel.i have my team uniform and helmet.do you really have a rebel???i saw your posts...you dont know what you have..you thought it was a kuwahara just the other day.then you said your brother broke his,then he gave it to you.i raced my rebel and kept it..i have alot of rebel stuff and know what im talking about.i saw you post that general lee frames were not looptails..where did that info come from???all the early rebels were loops and then production moved and the zeronine/cyclcraft style frames came out. no loops after that.

Re: 1982 Rebel Racing 24

i just talked to a old racer friend and he told me that alot of the skyway team was riding rebels not just shobert.he also told me that when they switched to the other style frame the rebel office was in houston but the frames were being subbed out to another company.he was a factory rider for a few years.he left rebel for powerlite and then titan.he said he may have his rebel gear bag..and he will give it to me if found.
